Fast Tips on Feedback in Split Partnerships

By Sarah Freiburger

eggs-390213_1280We all know how important feedback is when working with your split placement partners. The member engagement manager at NPAworldwide recruitment network has been hearing for years now from exporters (partners who supply candidates) that importers (partners who supply jobs) are bad at feedback to the partner in terms of how the candidate submitted stacks up to the other candidates, what they may be missing in terms of qualifications, and really, any comments back at all that could help deliver stronger candidates. Well in 2017, those same exporters are getting extremely busy and are also slacking on the feedback front, leaving the recruitment firm with the job frustrated as to knowing the status of the search, and hoping that candidates are being sourced so they can focus on business development. Here are a couple of fast tips from the firms supplying positions on the split placement end. Read the rest of this entry »

If projections from The Wall Street Journal ring true, recruiters will continue to face an increased demand for contract placements. The WSJ article published February 2, 2017 explains: “Never before have American companies tried so hard to employ so few people.

Split Placement Story: Teamwork is an option for Recruiters

By Sarah Freiburger

Z3VPU4IDKE-300A story from NPAworldwide’s engagement coordinator, Kelsea Bischoff.

Teamwork, according to the dictionary, “is the combined action of a group of people, especially when effective and efficient.” Many times working together is much more efficient from a time and effort perspective than working alone. For contingent recruiters, the goal is to make placements.  Close calls do not pay well!  The more deals you make the better for you, your clients and your candidates.  If done right everyone wins.  So, why not add a teamwork option to the recruiter tool box you work from?  Maybe it will result in a few more wins for your clients and candidates.
