Every company should have access to a trained talent sourcing and recruitment team.


Talon RPO™ is an on-demand recruitment process outsourcing provider focused on service quality, brand amplification, risk management, and results. We believe that traditional agency staffing models are antiquated and that on-demand RPO’s present a more attractive way to acquire the talent needed to put your business on top of the competition.  


What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing?

RPO is a form of business process outsourcing where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external provider. Working with an RPO provider is different than partnering with a headhunter or staffing agency; the RPO process is generally recognized as being more affordable, scalable, and customizable.

Talon is a small on-demand RPO, currently handling a range of 1 to 150+ placements a year for our clients. While we do have some national engagements, most of our recruiting services are provided throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Whether you need to backfill a critical leadership position, build out a full operations team for a business expansion, or upgrade your entire R&D department, Talon RPO is on-call wherever you go and whenever you need us.

Excerpts from post project reviews:

We partnered with Talon to find a Pre-Construction Manager and Project Manager for our growing office in Los Angeles. My team is very satisfied with this gang of talent thieves! Talon’s recruitment consultant began operating like an extension of the team in very short order and submitted high-quality candidates which kept my internal customers happy. I’ve been with this organization for 29 years and have worked with over 150 staffing and recruitment agencies; I’d say that Talon is among the best. We’re extremely likely to use this group again and I’d be happy to share the details of our partnership with anyone considering Talon RPO’s services.”
