GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, USA – March 8, 2016 – NPAworldwide, a global recruitment network, announced the results of its Business Barometer Survey. The survey is done twice annually and looks to engage the boutique and independent recruiters that are members of the NPAworldwide global network in documenting past results and predicting short-term future results.

“Our member recruiters are indicating positive momentum for business conditions for their contingent recruiting businesses in the coming 6 months” said Dave Nerz, president of NPAworldwide. “This survey of business owners showed that 86% of those surveyed are forecasting similar or improved market conditions in the next 180 days.”

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

  • The majority of respondents (60%) are from North America.
  • A significant percentage (23%) of respondents were from Australia/New Zealand.
  • 16% of respondents were in Asia or EMEA.
  • 41% reported business as improved in the last 180 days, 29% the same, and 30% as worse.
  • Most (71%) saw business performing at or above expectations in the last 90 days.
  • Only 14% of the respondents have a negative outlook for the next 6 months.
  • A large majority (83%) see fees as remaining at or above the last 6 months levels.

“Our member-owners called out the manufacturing, accounting/finance and IT/hardware/software/electronics vertical markets as particularly strong at this time. The results of the business barometer overall pointed to a continuing positive trend for NPAworldwide members and perhaps signals the same for the contingent recruiting market in general,” said Nerz. “Our members are experiencing good growth and anticipating more in the months ahead.”

GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, USA – December 22, 2015 – Effective January 1, 2016 NPAworldwide and NBN (National Banking Network) will consolidate and operate under the NPAworldwide brand. The merger of these two exclusive fee-splitting recruitment networks began in September 2014.

“The networks were extremely compatible and similar,” said Dave Nerz, president of the combined organizations. “Both recruitment networks offer membership by invitation only and have a thorough due diligence and reference checking process in place.

Exclusivity promotes and enhances open communication and trust that allow split deals to be done.”

Firms in the network vary in size, but are typically 1-5 recruiters. Some firms are larger, but size is not a determinant for membership. The combined networks are placing upwards of US $60 million in salaries annually and sharing more than $13 million in fees annually.
