A Stanford professor argues that procrastinating isn't so bad--as long as you do it right.Usually we think of procrastination as a bad habit to kick or a personal flaw that needs to be overcome with sheer willpower and a touch of self-trickery. But according to a new book, that's the entirely wrong way to look at the tendency to put things off until the last possible minute. John Perry, a professor of philosophy at Stanford University and the author of The Art of Procrastination, recently explained his out-of-the-box thinking on procrastination in an essay for The Wall Street Journal.

In our last post on recruitment process outsourcing (RPO), we demystified this strategy and shared its benefits. To recap, bringing an RPO provider into your organization can help you solve common recruiting challenges for better, faster hiring.
By outsourcing key recruiting tasks and projects to a trusted partner, you can lighten your in-house workload — freeing your team to focus on core business. RPO companies also offer access to advanced technology, increasing your quality of hire while bringing costs down.
As more employers adopt RPO, the demand for providers will only increase. To help you find the provider that’s right for you, Indeed decided to partner with ClearlyRated to launch a RPO award program focused on giving unbiased and transparent results so that RPO providers can credibly differentiate themselves.
“RPO [providers] are on the front lines of the war for talent, adding tremendous value to the companies they partner with,” says ClearlyRated CEO and Founder Eric Gregg. “Yet the industry lacked a credible, transparent, data-based program to recognize those who are delivering outsized results for their clients.”
With Indeed on board as the exclusive sponsor, The Best of RPO program was born: an annual list of RPO companies that have demonstrated exceptional service quality, based exclusively on ratings from their clients. In fact, ClearlyRated found that clients of winning providers are two times more likely to be “completely satisfied” with the services provided than are clients from non-winning providers.

Here are the 2020 winners, as determined by ratings from their clients.
