How Do You Choose a Recruiting Professional? Certification Makes the Difference.

ALIGNING THE MOST QUALIFIED CANDIDATES WITH YOUR STAFFING NEEDS IS AN ESSENTIAL AND COMPLEX TASK IN BUSINESS. ONE THAT SHOULD BE ENTRUSTED TO A CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL.

The National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS) is the veteran association with a nationally recognized certification program for recruiting professionals. They were the first national trade association established to represent the personnel services and staffing industry. The association was established in 1961.

Certification ensures knowledgeable, experienced recruiters meld the right candidate with the right company and that they follow the rules clearly defined by federal, sate and local governments.

A Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) brings to search assignments knowledge of current employment laws and procedures, as well as business operations and ethics; service of the highest quality meeting the needs of clients and candidate; ethics, by adhering to NAPS Standards of Ethical Practices; and commitment, credibility and dedication to the staffing industry.

A CPC participates in mandatory continuing education of at least 50 hours every three years. Laws and regulations change, so it is imperative that once certified, professional knowledge is kept current.

CPC's take the extra step to provide their candidates and clients with "leading edge" expertise, making their services even move valuable in the ever-changing market.

It is in your best interest to entrust your staffing needs to someone who has demonstrated a commitment to thorough knowledge of the laws and ethics governing recruitment firms and their clients.
