Cincinnati, OH, September 15, 2021 - Advantage xPO, the strategic workforce solutions division of Staffmark Group and member of RGF Staffing, has been named to HRO Today’s 2021 Baker’s Dozen in the Midsize Deal Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) category.

"We are honored to be recognized as a leader in RPO solutions, especially during a year that has presented a number of challenges. Our team is dedicated to providing unmatched quality of service in all business conditions, and we are thrilled to be acknowledged for our efforts," said Joshua Smith, senior vice president of Advantage xPO. "Thank you to our clients for placing their trust in us and for taking the time to share feedback. We value our partnership with you."

The Baker’s Dozen is considered the industry’s gold standard. Ratings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services. HRO Today collects feedback annually through an online survey, and then they analyze data for all providers with a statistically significant sample size. RPO providers were rated on three categories—quality of service, breadth of service, and size of the deal—by the magazine’s proprietary ranking algorithm, and Advantage xPO was recognized in all three categories for Midsize Deal RPO.

RPO is a scalable talent acquisition program where an employer transfers all or part of its permanent recruitment processes to an external partner. Midsize RPO programs are designed for organizations hiring between 500 and 1,000 employees annually. To learn more about Advantage xPO's approach to strategic workforce management, please visit
