GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, USA – April 5, 2017 – NPAworldwide, a global recruitment network, has announced its twice-annual Business Barometer Survey results. The survey engages the boutique and independent recruiters that are members of the NPAworldwide global network in documenting past results and predicting future recruitment industry results.

“Member recruiters are very positive about business conditions over the last 180 days and see a continuation of positive momentum for the future,” said Dave Nerz, president of NPAworldwide. “More than 90% of the independent business owners surveyed are forecasting similar or improved market conditions in the next 180 days.”

Other results of this survey of the 500 independent members of NPAworldwide indicated:

  • 65 percent of survey respondents are from North America.
  • The second largest respondent group was from Australia/New Zealand at 21 percent of the total.
  • 18% of respondents were in Asia, EMEA or Latin America.
  • 47% reported business as improved in the last 180 days.
  • 25% reported business as staying the same in the last 6 months.
  • 28% saw a decline in business over the last 180 days.
  • 63 percent reported business performance in line with or above expectations in the last 90 days.
  • As for the next 6 months, only 5% of the respondents have a negative outlook.
  • A large majority (86%) see fees as remaining at or above the last 6 month levels.

“Member recruitment firms view manufacturing/supply chain, technology and then accounting/finance as the hottest vertical markets at this time. The construction/infrastructure and sales areas received some support from member-owners as equally active niches. This current business barometer points to continuing positive conditions for the independent firms,” continued Nerz. “The market has certainly shifted to a candidate-driven market over the past few survey samples. Client assignments continue to be difficult and the perfect-fit candidates scarce. Member firms have more work than they are capable of filling on their own. The NPAworldwide split-fee model is a perfect complement to most members’ businesses and supports a speedier fill of employer’s job openings.”

GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, USA – October 18, 2016 –NPAworldwide is celebrating its 60th anniversary of helping members make split placements this year. NPAworldwide, a global recruitment network, is based in Grand Rapids, MI, and has 500 member firms and more than 1400 recruiters across 6 continents.

“NPAworldwide, on our 60th anniversary, has truly gone global with my election as the first Asian-Australian chair,” said Board of Directors chairman Nerissa Reyes, of Avanti People Partnership International, a global recruiting firm operating from the Philippines. “With 500 member firms covering six continents, the NPAworldwide global recruitment network has a well-entrenched global branding.”

Established in 1956, NPAworldwide is governed by a board of directors elected by and from the membership and supported by a professional staff. NPAworldwide’s mission is to enhance the effectiveness of member-owners’ operations locally, regionally, and globally while respecting unique geographic needs and differences, and to offer opportunities for increased revenue through cooperative recruitment, benefit from access to an experienced peer group, enhanced marketing capabilities, and access to progressive technology and resources. The network is committed to fostering personal and professional growth through a membership based on a foundation of trust, ethics, and professionalism.

“At 60 years, NPAworldwide has been built on ethics, trust and long-lasting friendships that have grown stronger to better serve the global recruitment industry,” Ms. Reyes said.

She further commented that one key to NPAworldwide’s success is the network’s ability to adapt to the recruitment industry’s ever-changing landscape. “Technology has greatly changed the recruitment scenario. Companies are looking for solutions to their global recruitment needs. During these times of talent shortage, NPAworldwide member recruitment firms are located throughout more than 40 countries providing local talent across borders. NPAworldwide members exchange best practices, knowledge of local culture, and the latest recruitment tools for the employer / employee marketplace.

“Longevity is not always the best measure of success; however, 60 years in a business as difficult and fluid as recruitment is a challenge worth celebrating!” said NPAworldwide president, Dave Nerz. “We have moved from distribution of time-sensitive materials by post to a purely internet-based tool, we have moved from locally-shared business to globally-connected discussions, and we have moved from just a few member firms to 500 global partners!”
