Latest Survey

NPAworldwide recently released the findings of its latest business barometer survey. The survey gathers insights from independent recruitment firm owners within the NPAworldwide network. These members specialize in executive, professional, and contract positions on a global scale. In recent months, there has been a slowdown in the global demand for talent. While fewer job openings are available, recruiters with expertise and connections still have ample opportunities to thrive. According to Mr. Nerz, 59 percent of respondents reported similar or improved business outcomes compared to the previous 180-day period.

However, these results show an 11 percent decline since February 2023, indicating a cooling trend. Despite this, a majority of respondents remain optimistic about the next six months, with 83.5 percent expecting similar or better results ahead. The competition for top talent remains fierce.

“The accounting/finance, manufacturing, and technology sectors continue to show strength,” said Mr. Nerz. “Recruitment firms specializing in contingent and retained placements are experiencing robust demand for talent. Top candidates are receiving multiple offers and counteroffers from their current employers. In this competitive landscape, speed and attractive compensation packages remain essential for successfully securing top talent. Retaining talent will become increasingly challenging but crucial. Despite efforts to cool the economy, confidence is growing, and the job market remains surprisingly stable.”
