Case Study: Realtime Recruitment’s Success with Talent as a Service (TaaS) for a Leading Payments Solutions Company


In the competitive world of payments solutions, attracting and retaining top talent is crucial for success. Companies often rely on traditional recruitment agencies to find and hire the best candidates, which can be both costly and time-consuming. However, the subject company, a leading payments solutions provider, found a game-changing solution with Realtime Recruitment’s Talent as a Service (TaaS) product. This case study explores the remarkable success story of this undisclosed company that reduced its recruitment agency spend from over $500,000 per year for 12 hires to just $180,000 per year for the same number of hires while benefiting from Realtime Recruitment’s innovative TaaS offering.

The Challenge: Reducing Recruitment Costs without Sacrificing Quality

The subject company was facing the challenge of maintaining its high hiring standards while controlling the spiralling costs associated with traditional contingent recruitment.

Realtime Recruitment’s TaaS product presented an enticing alternative to the traditional contingent model. The pricing structure included 12 hiring credits per year for $15,000 per month across a 12-month contract. In addition to cost savings, the TaaS offering provided a wide range of value-added services, such as free video screening, a customized talent dashboard, a fully funded digital marketing campaign, free advertising on all major job boards, a dedicated account manager, and access to Learning and Development services to upskill their team.
