NPAworldwide Best Practices

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on Jan 26, 2023
story thumbnail

As your Board Chair, it is my honor to regularly speak to members, both new and veteran, as well as those leaving NPAworldwide. In doing so, the vast majority of discussions are positive and productive. What is clear, is that the common denominator of success at NPA is being proactive and transparent. Click here for a great summary of NPAworldwide Best Practices

I would like to speak about several bad practices that have crossed my desk of late.

Coverage of New Salary Posting Laws - How Broad?

Posted by NPAworldwide Headquarters on Jan 26, 2023
story thumbnail

On January 1, 2023, California and Washington State joined Colorado in requiring salary ranges to be included in job posts. Employers with no offices or employees in these states might think they are off the hook from complying, but that would be at odds with the views of the regulators.

Paying Your Partners

Dear Nicky,

I am fairly new to NPAworldwide and made my first placement already. Yay! I added the placement to the system and received the check in the mail 20 days later. To my dismay, I received a call from the candidate recruiter asking me when he would receive his money. I told him the guarantee period was 90 days but I did have the check from the client. He was not happy. Am I doing something wrong?

Proposed Ban on Non-Competes

Last week the United States' Federal Trade Commission published a proposed regulation that would effectively ban all non-compete agreements. It would even require employers to formally rescind any non-compete agreements that are already in place. Industry attorney Bill Josey briefly addressed this for members last week in our monthly training webinar.

I like the movie Roadhouse with Patrick Swayze. OK, I admit I watched because I had a crush on Sam Elliot. There is a part in the movie where he tells the staff to be nice, even if someone gets in your face, be nice, if you need to walk them out be nice, remember it is a job nothing personal.. here is the clip for those who have not seen it

Sharing Jobs with Partners

Posted by Nicky P. Anderson on Nov 10, 2022
story thumbnail

Dear Nicky,

A trading partner just asked me for help on a role that she has had for the past several months. It's hard to believe the client doesn't have other options in play at this point, possibly even some of the same candidates I would have recruited. It just doesn't seem like there is a high likelihood of success in filling the role now. Is it normal for partners to wait this long before asking for help?

Internationalism

Welcome all NPA Members! I am pleased to have been asked to write this Chairman’s Corner for this week’s Vignette. As many of you know, I am the EMEA Director for NPA, a role I have held for a couple of years now, following on from being the UK & Ireland Area Leader previously. Being based in the UK as I am, the topic I wanted to cover with you all is “Internationalism”. This, according to the dictionary, means a cluster of ideas derived from the belief that international progress is possible, where progress is defined as movement toward increasing levels of harmonious cooperation between communities.

The Disconnected Recruiter and NPAworldwide

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on Oct 27, 2022
story thumbnail

About two weeks ago, I booked two client meetings in New York City. On the way in, I had a lot of calls that needed to be done, so I decided to take an Uber. It was a big process day: interviews, logistics, offer discussions, a lot moving parts. I wanted to stay close and be available. Since I gave up my NYC drop-office a couple of years ago, my plan was to sit at a little coffee shop I often frequent, check messages, and make some calls. My client meetings were confirmed and were at the end of the day. All was going along well until…I realized a few minutes too late that I had left my mobile phone behind in the Uber!!!!!!!!! To make things worse, I had no laptop. I had made the decision before leaving home that all of the day’s activities could be handled by my mobile device. WOW, THIS WAS NOT HAPPENING TO ME! But it was!!!!!

Roman Duty is guest-writing this issue's From the Chair.

Greetings, fellow NPA Members! It’s an honor to write this month for the Vignette. As I debated on a topic to touch on with you all, I received a candidate via an NPA candidate partner that was qualified enough for me to call them instantly. When I reached the candidate and introduced myself, the candidate was confused. This person had not heard my name, vaguely remembered responding to an email from the other recruiter, couldn’t recall the job, and I spent time overcoming this candidate’s skepticism.

From a 9/11 Survivor, Thoughts & Prayers On This  21st Anniversary

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on Sep 08, 2022
story thumbnail

I thank the Lord for the gift of my life and I pray for those lost in New York City, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania. I think of their families and hope the years have eased the pain of their loss. I think of the lingering health issues and the loss of life that still touches many survivors and first responders in NYC.

Over the years, and still today, I think about the two seemingly routine events that saved my own life: A subway delayed at 14th Street, and a request from my office to pick up doughnuts for the 10AM sales meeting. Both events resulting in me pushing the elevator button as the first plane hit WTC1. Were these delaying events part of the serendipity of life or the intercession of the Lord? I suspect I will ponder this question the rest of my life.

I want to share with you a moment that displays the spirit of NPAworldwide in action.  
 
As we are all well aware, the global pandemic kept many of us in place for nearly 2 years. In Australia, the lock downs and lack of travel were particularly difficult. For the first time in more than 2 years, NPAworldwide members gathered for a face-to-face meeting in Manly, a seaside suburb of Sydney, NSW. There were about 60 member-owners and sponsors gathered for our dinner on the first night of the conference. With inspiration from Jason Elias, our Past Chairman, a speaker offered some dedicated training time for “auction” to support Simone Allan’s cause, The Women’s Resilience Centre.

Greetings! I hope this finds you well, prosperous in business but also  making time to smell the roses and enjoy family and friends.

As your Chair I have the pleasure of interacting with members and staff, around what is working well at NPA and the points of challenge. Over the years, I have said that the common denominator of success at NPA is being proactive. It is indeed the Essence of NPA members in communication, splitting deals and sharing their thought leadership and subject matter expertise.

As previously addressed, NPAworldwide has done some basic research and now we are asking members to refer great providers to their fellow members. 

It should be noted that some geographies are more difficult to solve for than others. Europe, Asia and Latin America are not as member-rich and there are many counties with different rules, laws, and languages. We will depend upon members to make recommendations in these spots.

Client Feedback

Posted by Nicky P. Anderson on Jul 08, 2022

Dear Nicky,

I am usually a job-side recruiter, relying on partners to provide candidates. Recently, I had some extra time so I working on providing candidates for my NPAworldwide partners. I found that not a lot of members have what I call client control. That is not the way I like to work. Is there a good way for me to get that information upfront, without sounding bossy?

As we know, the hiring manager is likely giving the job order to everyone and anyone who wants to see it. I set expectations upfront with my client so I know I will get feedback, and I also make it clear that I need to know where they are sending the job(s).

GDPR Email Notifications from NPAmarketplace

Posted by NPAworldwide Headquarters on Jun 28, 2022
story thumbnail

You may have noticed a new email notification from NPAmarketplace beginning late last week related to members who have downloaded your candidate(s). This is an expanded feature that was previously deployed in Matchmaker to comply with GDPR. GDPR is a sweeping privacy regulation in the European Union that was implemented in 2018. Job seekers (and other individuals) in the EU have a legal right to know who has “control” or possession of their personal data, and to have that personal data deleted upon request. Anyone who works with a job seeker living in the EU must comply with the GDPR requirements. You can learn more about your obligations under the GDPR here: https://gdpr.eu/compliance-checklist-us-companies/

The Essence of NPA, a phrase I plan to popularize this year, runs straight and true in Europe. Earlier this month, members from NPA in Europe, the US and LATAM got together in Barcelona, Spain in person
for the first time in over two years. Connection Barcelona was a big success! Best practices and thought leadership were shared amongst the attendees and great speakers. More importantly, old friendships were renewed and new friendships were made.

Feedback Matters!

My sweet father-in-law has been in and out of the hospital for the last three months. I can tell you for sure that not all facilities are equal, nor are all service providers. Along the way, I've given shoutouts to some caregivers and some not-so-pleasant corrective suggestions to others. At times our family has been very frustrated and at others, we've been exceedingly pleased. Being fully engaged with his service providers has proved invaluable to his quality of care and overall satisfaction.

Auto-Deletion of Inactive Recruiter Accounts

Posted by Veronica Blatt on May 26, 2022
story thumbnail

Quick reminder to all owners and recruiters: about a year ago we began implementing some new security measures to reduce the number of inactive accounts on our sites, especially NPAmarketplace. If a recruiter fails to log in to NPAcentral for more than 180 days after their account was created, the account will be automatically deleted. This will also trigger deletions from NPAmarketplace. We have been handling this manually for quite a long time, but now have the ability to streamline this task.

NPA Job Board: Your Contingent Partner in Placement

Posted by Dave Nerz on May 26, 2022

Finding talent is difficult. Speed to close on open positions is becoming extended. Some jobs are just not built to split…low fees, too many competitors, or strange one-off situations make it difficult to get support from your NPAworldwide partners. The NPA Job Board is a great option for these situations. We discourage the use of the NPA Job Board where you have partners investing time to source candidates. Please don’t waste your NPA partners' time.

Small Gatherings and the Essence of NPAworldwide

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on May 26, 2022

The Essence of NPA—I hope to popularize the phrase over the next few months. This endearing phrase came out of our recent Global Conference in Texas by way of my dear friend and  Chairman’s Award Recipient, Laura Schmieder. As I mentioned in a recent Chairman’s Corner, the Essence of NPA is the people. And one of the most efficient ways to get to know your fellow members are at small informal get-togethers. A lot can be discussed over a cup of coffee, lunch, drink after work or even stopping by a member’s office.

Non-Traditional Fee Splits

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on May 12, 2022
story thumbnail

About a month ago, I received a call from a member who has been with NPAworldwide for a couple of years and in the industry for about ten years. The member explained to me that she had two great sales roles, competitively priced, yet she was getting very little NPAworldwide candidate-side (CS) submissions. After further discussion, I learned that although this position was with a long-time client, the member had no sales placement experience. The member took on the search with the hope of closing it with NPA CS help. Great strategy!! This is why we are in NPAworldwide.

NPAmarketplace & NPAworldwide Basics

The backbone of NPAworldwide is and will always be its members and recruiters, as well as the staff who help us all work effectively and efficiently. Building relationships leads to information exchange as well as split placements. HOW do you find your potential trading partners and industry experts? 

Every new member and recruiter is trained in using NPAmarketplace and NPA Central to find potential trading partners…as well as attending meetings and Practice Group calls. They don’t know anyone in NPAworldwide so they absolutely depend on our tools, whether it's finding out when meetings or trading calls or webinars might be OR seeing jobs and candidates OR finding out who are the specialists.

Did you know you can set a default currency in NPAmarketplace? The default for all users is USD, but you can customize the salary to automatically apply a different currency standard to all of your posted candidate and job records. So Australian members who typically work with Australian candidates and Australian jobs, can set the default to Australian dollars. Those in Europe can change the default to euros.

Zooming Your Browser In/Out

If you have your browser set at higher than 100% ("zooming in"), you may notice some fields or features of Marketplace don't work correctly or aren't visible to you. For example, if you set your browser to 200% size, the Marketplace drop-down menus for Partners, Candidates, Jobs and Splits will stop working - this is true in Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. Zooming "out" to something less than 200% will restore the menu functionality.

Resume Formatting

As more members have recently been working with candidates, we are seeing an increase in tech support requests related to difficulty parsing resumes. In almost every instance, the resume in question is full of logos, pictures, tables, or other images. The resume parser can ONLY read text. Resumes that are filled with images will not parse correctly.

Resume Formatting Veronica Blatt 2022-05-02 04:00:00Z 0 Technology Tips

Converting PDFs to Word

A fairly common support request we receive at NPAworldwide is regarding PDF resumes that won't upload to Marketplace. If your candidate has embedded images, tables, odd fonts, or other problematic data in the PDF, you'll likely encounter difficulties getting that resume/CV uploaded. You may even have trouble opening the file. As more candidates use mobile devices for their career searches, we think that PDF versions of resumes are likely to increase, since they can easily be stored and opened on a mobile device.

Recruiter Contact Information and the NPAworldwide Job Board

story thumbnail

Important reminder to members: If you are posting jobs on the NPAworldwide Job Board, you may NOT include your contact information in ANY of the description fields (What Makes This a Great Job, Job Description, or Qualifications). This would potentially allow a candidate to circumvent the Job Board, meaning NPAworldwide would not receive the required placement fee.

Posting Records to the Job Board

A reminder to those of you who are posting jobs on Marketplace AND the Job Board. Please be sure you are NOT including private notes or recruiter-to-recruiter comments in the Job Description, Qualifications, or Why Is This a Great Opportunity fields. These are PUBLIC fields that ARE shared on the Job Board. This means job seekers are seeing information that is really not suitable for a public audience.

Best Format for Resumes/CVs

Sometimes candidates will convert their resume/CV to PDF format before sending it to a recruiter. This is typically because they don't want anyone to make changes to their resume, and believe that PDF is a "read-only" document. A PDF file CAN be edited with the correct software, so this is a false assumption by job seekers.

Are you ready to take your business, marketing and sales efforts up a notch? If so then I have great news for YOU! There is an AI content-creation tool called Jasper that can help with all of this. It's perfect because not only does it create blog posts but also questions on Quora or Reddit. It can even help write unique email subject lines - which means more engagement from potential leads. If you attended Ryan Kovach's session about Actionable Marketing Strategies on a Budget in Fort Worth, you'll recall his enthusiasm for Jasper as well.

Hello NPAworldwide owners and recruiters, 

The Board of Directors has asked staff to invest some time and energy to find solutions for service provider needs that most  members are likely to find beneficial or necessary. Many of you have solid solutions in place for these needs, others are in search of new providers, looking for increased performance, or interested in reduced cost for the work required. Here are some of the categories the Board asked for staff to prioritize. Please reply to this thread with others that would be valuable to you if something has been missed.

Flying the NPA Flag

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on Apr 27, 2022

Greetings, NPA! Spring is in the air for those of us in the northern hemisphere.

Joining NPA almost 10 years ago has enabled me to maintain my  individual firm identity, while concurrently being part of something much bigger. I came to learn shortly after joining NPA that one of the best kept secrets of NPA membership is FLYING THE NPA FLAG. In fact, for the past several years all of my client acquisition initiates have been NPA-centric. In operation, I lead with, and go to market flying the NPA flag.

The Essence of NPA

Posted by Jim Lyons JD, CPC on Apr 14, 2022
story thumbnail

Greetings. As I consider all of the great ideas that came out of 2022 NPA Global Conference last week, it would be easy to write about topics such as; operational best practices, technology and member achievement. In the alternative, I would rather discuss what I feel is the greatest value of in-person meetings: the opportunity to make new friends and to renew old friendships. I must say, I was very much moved by a phrase I heard last week – “The Essence of NPA.” I have never heard the phrase since joining NPA almost 10 years ago. The meaning behind this phrase simply and poignantly defines the true NPA experience.

Marketing NPAworldwide Size and Scope

Posted by Dave Nerz on Apr 13, 2022
story thumbnail

While attending the Global Conference, several members were very interested in marketing NPAworldwide to their clients with a map of member locations. While that seems easy enough, I can tell you the minute it is published it is out of date. For example, last month we had 20 new members join and 9 members depart. It is never going to be accurate for more than a few days

New York City Issues Guidance on Required Salary Disclosures in Job Postings

New York City employers be aware: A new “NYC Salary Disclosure Law” will soon require employers to include a good faith salary range for every job, promotion, or transfer opportunity advertised. While the NYC Salary Disclosure Law is scheduled to take effect on May 15, 2022, it may now be pushed out to November 1, 2022 due to a recently introduced bill that would amend the new law, including the effective date.

One of the benefits of NPAworldwide membership is the ability to promote an international capability to your clients, serve your clients outside of their home markets, maximize your firm’s business opportunity by spending your time where the jobs are, and avoiding down economic situations in your home market. NPAworldwide defines “cross-border” splits as deals where the partners are operating in different countries. Here is a story about members that completed a cross-border split.

    Greetings! As I commence my two-year term as your Board Chair, I first wish to thank my good friend Jason Elias (now serving as Immediate Past Chair) for his dedication not only to NPA but also to our industry. Strategically, Jason marshaled NPA  through a global pandemic, while also always keeping his watchful eye on creating membership value. I would  embarrass Jason if I listed his awards and achievements at NPA and in our industry. I will simply say that this network is much better today because of dedicated leaders such as Jason. Thank you mate! You remain an inspiration to us all.

    I hope you will indulge me a few parting words. What an honour it is to be part of NPAworldwide. There is not a day goes by where NPA is not a part of my life and I am not alone here. From making splits with partners, learning new ideas from calls and training sessions, sharing stories and tips with colleagues or even just having a chat to friends I have made.
