Meet Accolo and Discover Our Hire Purpose
Accolo is a US-focused Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) company that provides Elevated RPO Services far beyond what the typical RPO firm provides. We are founded on a simple premise: We take care of the people, process, technology, and strategy necessary to make great hires and make life easier for our clients.
We also believe deeply in our Candidate Bill of Rights, which we created, and has now become the industry gold standard for managing candidates and ensuring that your hiring process contributes positively to your employment brand.
Since our inception in 2000, Accolo has refined our data-driven, patented recruiting process to offer Elevated RPO services to SMB (small to mid-size business) clients in a wide variety of industries.
Accolo was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
Customer & Candidate Satisfaction
We measure results for every client using hiring performance metrics that identify recruiting cost ratio, time-to-start cycle time, and candidate quality so that we can continue to improve efficiency and the quality of every hire. Customer satisfaction is measured one job at a time and uses direct feedback from both the hiring manager and the candidate.
We deliver hiring manager satisfaction that is twice as high as the industry average, with over 88% of hiring managers describing their experience with us as good or great.
Awards are nice, but this is what makes us most proud – your hiring success.
We also take candidate satisfaction very seriously. It’s one of our fundamental beliefs that all candidates must be treated with courtesy and respect. In fact, we routinely receive email from candidates that were not hired, thanking us for our professionalism and respectful communications.
[Hiring Consultant]’s initial interview with me to get the basic information about the open job position and our needs made it immediately apparent that he “got” our unique situation and what was required of the role. He demonstrated excellent recruitment acumen and added value to the overall process. A great partner to work with!
My entire experience was only positive. I can’t say enough how fantastic it was to work with our Consultant. She is super helpful, knowledgeable, and very quick to respond and attentive. Would highly recommend working with her to anyone.
