    global oversight, strategic objectives/insights, adding value

    Technology-supported strategic objectives. The right blend of HR
    expertise with leading-edge technology support (not vice versa).

    Global oversight. Companies insist on maintaining and reinforcing
    control of their recruitment function, and we find this to be particularly
    true for international clients. With this in mind, a good RPO provider
    will honor that need while also adding value, improved communication,
    and strategic insights every step of the way.
    Pan-European and/or global capabilities. An RPO partner with a large
    global footprint can scale to meet demands that change over time.

    Please explain the emboldened parts to me.

    Re: global oversight, strategic objectives/insights, adding value

    Hi user_gary

    I would recommend that you use The Free Dictionary, together with for such queries:

    Beware, Oversight has 2 oposite meanings, particularly in American English:

    oversight - definition of oversight by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.:
    1. An unintentional omission or mistake - AmE
    2. Watchful care or management; supervision - AmE
    3. Mistake caused by not noticing something - BrE
    In your sentence, for Global Oversight, meaning No. 2 applies, from an overall Global viewpoint.

    For "adding value", see:
    The enhancement a company, in your case the RPO, gives its product or service before offering the product to customers.

    If they don't add value, you may as well have done it yourself, or employed a purely clerical service.

    For "strategic objectives/insights", see:

    strategic: Definition from
    1. Important or essential in relation to a plan of action: a strategic withdrawal.
    2. Essential to the effective conduct of war: strategic materials.
    3. Highly important to an intended objective: The staff discussed strategic marketing factors.
    objective: Definition, Synonyms from
    Something worked toward or striven for; a goal.

    insights: Information from
    Intuitive understandings.

    A strategic objective is a goal that has been pre-planned, as a result of a strategy, laid down before the plan is implemented. The strategy should have considered both the pro's and con's of various different ways of achieving your goal (i.e for and against) and also what things could go wrong and ways of "designing them out, in advance" (so they wouldn't apply) and/or minimising their impact on the strategic plan.

    A strategic insight is a deep, intuitive understanding of the objective and the strategy that would enable one to not only strategically avoid pitfalls but also to take full advantage of any unexpected opportunities.

    Hoping this helps
    Best regards
