Why Companies are Embracing Unbundled Recruitment Services


Ask anyone involved in hiring and they will say it is time consuming and stressful. It can also be challenging controlling costs while ensuring the right people are hired.

Now, more and more companies are embracing a flexible hiring option called “Unbundled Recruitment”. Its attraction lies in the ability to cost-effectively choose only the recruitment support they require, and none they don’t.


For example, a medium sized business with a modest hiring budget needs to quickly recruit some key people for their team. The problem is, they don’t have a vast talent database, an established network of connections, premium recruitment tools or even the resources to speed up the process.

By engaging an outside partner and using the Unbundled Recruitment solution, they can quickly have candidates sourced by taking advantage of a bigger reach to find the qualified people they need to speed up selection.


There are many steps in the end-to-end recruitment process. It doesn’t matter if your company is small, medium, or large. Sometimes a little hiring support is needed, or a lot. It may depend on budget, internal resources, the need for expertise, or technology tools.

A large business with its own in-house recruitment team needs an Unbundled Recruitment partner to help manage the flow of applicant CVs to free up internal resources. Now that hiring is picking up speed after lockdown, the number of people applying for positions is skyrocketing. It’s not uncommon for people to apply for positions for which they are not qualified, and separating out those that are, takes time.

52% of talent acquisition leaders say the hardest part of recruitment is screening candidates from a large applicant pool.

Top talent only stays on the market briefly, so screening CV’s quickly is essential if you want to bring the best people on board. Selecting this Unbundled Recruitment service enables your hiring partner to rapidly cut through the clutter. Your team can now focus on their other priorities such as interviewing shortlisted candidates or fine-tuning onboarding procedures.


No matter where staff are working, profiling your top performers is a proven advantage. Top performer profiling collects data on the skills, knowledge, and behaviours of top performers to learn why their performance stands out.

A company who selects top performer profiling from the Unbundled Recruitment choices will be able to have the true drivers of individual success identified. This information informs and guides new hire selections, staff development, and advancement processes.

Choosing the specific hiring assistance they require provides companies with extra resources and expertise while paying only for the services they need.

Gone are the days when companies based their hiring decisions solely on the candidates’ educational qualifications and work experience. All organisations need to know if the candidate also possesses the right attitude, has the adaptability to fit into the company’s culture, and the drive to ultimately succeed in the position.

Unbundled Recruitment behavioural assessments, a tool from the field of psychology, eliminate the guesswork by ensuring a company’s hiring decisions are backed by an insights-driven approach. Accurately analysing a candidate’s personality and behavioural traits is a boon for recruiters as a wrong selection is time consuming and costly.

It’s a rare company that does not need to terminate an employee at some point, either due to lay-offs, poor hires, or other reasons. And losing a job can cause a tremendous amount of stress. The most important thing a business can do is invest in its exiting employees to help them get back on their feet.

Selecting the Unbundled Recruitment outplacement service provides invaluable counselling, guidance, and a positive energy to the job search. For the employees that remain, seeing their company take care of terminated employees increases loyalty, productivity, and morale.

Demonstrating you care also protects your corporate brand and your ability to attract qualified talent.

Selecting only the Unbundled Recruitment services you need for any part of the recruitment process is a smart strategy that puts you in the driver’s seat.
