EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - August 4, 2010) -  HRO Today magazine today announced the eagerly anticipated results of its annual Baker's Dozen ranking of major recruitment process outsourcing firms. The results were based upon a survey completed by more than 600 HR executives who are current buyers of RPO services. RPO providers were rated on the breadth of their service, the size of the programs they manage and the quality of service provided. 

The market was grouped into three lists: the Enterprise Baker's Dozen list, which has been provided by HRO Today for six years and consists of the top providers in RPO. The magazine also provided results for lists of the top Global Market Providers and the top Mid-Market and Project/On-Demand Providers. 

According to Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise, publishers of HRO Today magazine, "This survey is the industry's most credible perspective of top RPO firms because it's based on the feedback of the buyers themselves. We're honored to offer this service to our readers as they seek to identify the best RPO provider to meet their respective needs." He continued, "We congratulate the top rated firm, SourceRight, on its impressive scores across all categories and breakaway score in quality of service. We're also delighted to honor Alexander Mann Solutions as the top global market provider and IBM RPO as the mid-market and on-demand leader."

The RPO Baker's Dozen List, the flagship product of the survey, was developed from information culled on over 50 firms selected from more than 300 that eventually reduced down to the final 13 which were then ranked according to a pre-determined set of indices.

In addition to the rankings, aggregate survey data about industry trends was also developed this year and can be found in the July/August issue of HRO Today magazine on www.hrotoday.com and will be presented at the upcoming RPO Summit in December 2010 in Las Vegas, NV. (www.rposummit.com).
