NPA has increased our bottom line by between 25-30% every year for the last 20 years. – Charlie Diana, President, Advanced Search Group, Inc., USA
Being an NPA member has given Challenge Consulting the opportunity to broaden our market reach and to maximise opportunities that would otherwise not have been possible. In addition, Challenge staff have forged some valuable and trusted relationships with many NPA members and we look forward to developing more around the world in the future. NPA is the global answer to grow our independent recruiting business. – Elizabeth Varley, Managing Director, Challenge Consulting, Australia
We have invested in NPA membership since 1988 and have long regarded NPA as the best business decision and investment we’ve made as a company for these reasons:
- NPA membership immediately established us a national and global recruiting and search firm
- NPA offered instant access to legitimate work as a hedge against lulls in our direct search business
- Advice and counsel from the best minds in the executive search industry are available to us through our NPA affiliate offices
- NPA provides access to the cutting edge trainers for a fraction of the cost of attending seminars individually
Personally, having served as a Board member and Trading Group chair for the better part of 20 years, my experience as a leader in NPA broadened my professional life and is one of the greatest accomplishments in this industry. – Gary Eastwood, Partner, BECK/EASTWOOD Recruitment Solutions, USA
I work in an office with only two recruiters. Sometimes I am overwhelmed with the number of jobs I am trying to fill. Being a member of NPA, The Worldwide Recruiting Network is extremely helpful to my business. I am able to call on my associates to help me fill my jobs. If it were not for NPA, I would have let several job orders go unfilled. It is also nice to have such a great network of recruiters to call on to discuss the recruiting space. Joining monthly calls and attending regional and annual meetings with other recruiters is very beneficial and has really helped my business throughout the past 14 years. – Anne Downing, Professional Recruiter, Demetrio & Associates, USA
Before joining NPA, we were seen as a small, local recruiting firm located outside of a major city. However, once we joined NPA, The Worldwide Recruiting Network, we were able to leverage our membership and serve clients outside of our local area—including regional, national, and international. Now, we have clients who just “know” we can recruit for them, regardless of location. Talk about “found money” and outstanding ROI! I highly recommend membership in NPA to any independent recruiter. – Kimberley Chesney CPC, President, Prime Management Group, Inc., Canada
We joined NPA in 1996 in an effort to expand our business by making more placements working cooperatively with other recruiters. Since that time, NPA has not only been a tremendous direct source of revenue, it has also been:
- Our IT advisor
- A tremendous support network through amazing relationships built with affiliates within NPA
- A key tool to recession-proof our business by being able to work with affiliates in a number of different locations and industries (domestically and globally)
- An excellent learning and professional growth forum through NPA’s global and regional networking meetings
NPA, The Worldwide Recruiting Network, is a key factor in both our success and our survival. – Meri Laird Jones, Partner, Davidson-Laird & Associates, USA
The market was in the dumper. The bills just kept coming, like rent and overhead, and there was no relief in sight for new revenue. And then we joined NPA. For the next two years, we found a market and revenue through the cooperative efforts of our partners in this proven global recruiting organization. That was in 1982, and we are still members and still seeing NPA provide revenue opportunities during good times and bad. – George F. Black CPC, President, RSA Corporation, USA
Since joining NPA, The Worldwide Recruiting Network, I have over 300 search firms globally as partners without the problem of managing individual offices. My network has grown substantially and I have placed AVANTI in the world-class market. We are taking advantage of the boom in the Asian economy. Our major accounts are multinational clients in the Philippines referred by NPA associates. – Nerissa Reyes, President, Avanti Partnership, Philippines
NPA has been a valuable resource to our business in many ways. We have increased revenue and strengthened client relationships as a result of the expanded capability provided by our NPA membership. Our ability to help clients with global recruiting needs is one advantage of membership. We also enjoy many great peer relationships built through NPA. I highly recommend NPA to any independent recruiter or recruiting firm. – Bill Benson, Partner, William Charles Executive Search, USA
NPA, The Worldwide Recruiting Network provides me with the support and tools needed to improve my efficiency and effectiveness. Thanks to the help of affiliates, I have been able to present better candidates, and these candidates have resulted in additional placement revenue for my business. The process of working with affiliates can be so much fun that I find myself working overtime to make a split placement! – Michele Smythe CPC, Principal, Corporate Search
We have been able to leverage our NPA partnership to extend Rita Technology Services’ recruiting capabilities for a Florida-based client. When I approached my client, I knew their growth plans were in India, not the US. I had just one goal in mind…continue to support the client no matter what.
I contacted my NPA partner based in India via email and Skype. We discussed my client’s situation and position needs. I then connected my client to my India-based NPA partner through email introductions. I decided to let my client and NPA partner work directly with one another in order to simplify the communication chain.
The team at Cucumber Consultants delivered effectively and more! The feedback has been stellar with regard to Cucumber’s candidate profiles, information sharing, and the overall recruiting process when compared to the current recruiting companies my client uses. As a result, we have had 2 offers in the last week, with verbal acceptances from both!
I am excited about “going global” with our new trusted trading partner, Cucumber Consulting! This experience confirms that a Tampa, Florida-based independent recruiter can compete against the large international recruiting organizations and win. Our quality and service levels utilizing talented NPA partners around the globe outperformed the branch office of a large international chain. – John Holton, Director Client Services, Rita Technology Services, USA
