2017 HRO Today Baker’s Dozen: Recruitment Process Outsourcing

We rank the top providers based on customer satisfaction surveys.

By the Editors

HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen rankings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services. The ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today staff.

Once collected, response data are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis to score each provider that has a statistically significant sample.
