Hudson RPO Recognized as a Star Performer and Major Contender by Everest Group

June 11, 2024

Tampa, Fla., June 11, 2024 – Hudson RPO today announced that it has been named as a Major Contender and Star Performer in Everest Group’s Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) PEAK Matrix® Assessment. The Star Performer designation is based on Hudson RPO’s significant Year over Year (YoY) movement up the Matrix.

The report cites several accomplishments in Hudson RPO’s offering that led to its elevated ranking, including demonstrated growth and resilience in terms of hires managed and global revenue amid a global slowdown in the RPO market.

The organization has also seen measurable global expansion with organic growth by setting up an entity in Ireland, and inorganic growth with the acquisition of Hudson Singapore.  Hudson RPO has also enhanced its offering with a dedicated Executive Search team and expanded advisory services.

“Hudson RPO has made concerted organic and inorganic investments to expand its global RPO footprint across most of the major RPO markets. Its expertise in hiring white-collar professionals across key industries, such as pharmaceutical and life sciences, BFSI, and manufacturing, has enabled Hudson RPO to demonstrate significant resilience in the downturn of 2023,” says Arkadev “Arko” Basak, Partner, Everest Group. “Its continued investments in advancing its talent advisory services and its partnership-based technology ecosystem have strengthened its position as a Major Contender and Star Performer on Everest Group’s Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2024 – Global.”

“Buyers highlighted Hudson RPO’s strong account and stakeholder management, which leads to significantly superior recruitment outcomes and better candidate fit,” said Hudson RPO Global CEO Jake Zabkowicz. “As we continue to expand and excel in the marketplace, we look forward to offering clients best-in-class results, including DEI, advisory, permanent and contingent workforce planning and technology consulting.”

For the RPO Services PEAK Matrix®, Everest Group analyzes the RPO landscape and the performance of 32 service providers, looking at these providers’ vision for RPO, their capacity to deliver on that vision, the impact that they have had on the wider market, including the scope of services offered, and level of innovation and investments. The assessment also considers third-party RPO deals as well as approximately 5,200 multi-process RPO deals. The report divides RPO providers into three main categories: Leaders, Major Contenders and Aspirants.
