NPAworldwide celebrates 60th anniversary
NPAworldwide is celebrating its 60th anniversary of helping members make split placements this year. NPAworldwide is based in Grand Rapids, MI, and has 500 member firms and more than 1400 recruiters across 6 continents.
Board of directors chairman, Nerissa Reyes, of Avanti People Partnership International, a global recruiting firm operating from the Philippines, commented, “NPAworldwide, on our 60th anniversary, has truly gone global with my election as the first Asian-Australian chair.
“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.
Reyes said, “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.
“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.
NPAworldwide president, Dave Nerz, stated, “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!
“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!”
