    Default single-search transactions, long-term strategic and day-to-day tactical support

    An RPO might be right if you face complex recruitment challenges
    requiring long-term strategic and day-to-day tactical support. RPO in one
    market is gaining momentum. Just three years ago, single-search
    transactions
    comprised approximately 90 percent of Futurestep Italy’s business
    mix, with the remaining 10 percent going towards project recruitment.
    Today, more than 60 percent of Futurestep Italy’s business is in project
    recruitment and RPO account work, with single transactions making up the
    rest.

    Please explain the emboldened parts to me.

    What is meant by "An RPO might be right"? Where did you find that paragraph?

    I know the meaning of RPO but I can't find the meaning of "single-search transactions" anywhere. Could you explain that to me?

    You are not the only one reading this. There are probably some readers of this thread who do not know what an IPO is. (I didn't.) As for "single-search transactions", if you understand that what IPOs do is recruit personnel for companies large and small then you can figure out that it means they are looking for individuals to fill openings for individuals (CEOs, account managers, chief engineers, etc.).

    Sorry! Just now I got your question.

    It means a company which resorts to RPO must consider the following points.

    I mean if a company wants RPO to undertake their human resources activities, then they should consider the following points before they undertake it. Otherwise, it may prove him costly.

    Here is some context :
    WHEN WILL YOU BE READY?
    While each company faces unique challenges with its industry,
    geographic footprint, and sheer size, there are a few definitive signs that it
    might be time to consider outside support of your recruitment function.
    Here are a few points to consider:

    * Your company has immediate plans to hire high volumes of
    employees—from a few dozen to hundreds or more—in three to five months.
    * These imminent volume hires are for highly specialized roles
    (engineering, finance/accounting, healthcare, etc.).
    * Your organization requires these volume hires to be strategically
    placed across multiple geographies.
    * You work for a start-up organization or are planning to relocate.
    * Your company faces a significant shift in business strategy
    and/or plans to launch new products or services.
    * Merger or acquisition plans are on your company’s horizon.

    This acceptance can be seen in employers such as European consumer
    electronics manufacturer Kesa Darty Group, which is hiring 150 workers for
    its facility in Darty, Italy. Other examples of RPO users include
    volume hires for building products leader Lafarge Roofing and Italian beer
    giant Birra Peroni. These clients are proof of a significant shift among
    companies recruiting locally in Italy.

    Historically, continental Europe has been slower to embrace RPO than
    the U.K. Now, however, the concept is being more widely put into practice
    by companies located in countries all across Europe and across the
    world.
