Why Use NAER Firms

When deciding to engage a search firm why choose a National Association of Executive Recruiters member firm?

Trust, reliability, and integrity are the essential assets of our business. Whether you are seeking a line or staff manager, partner or associate, technical specialist or company president, NAER-member firms afford you an unparalleled resource for a successful search.

NAER-member firms subscribe to the highest ethical standards in the executive recruitment industry. The common goal on which the Association was founded and the motivating force behind it today is each member’s sincere commitment to promote and advance the standards of professional practice.

Our overall purpose is to counsel and assist executive management in identifying and hiring the best available leaders for their specific needs. Our further goal is to place those individuals capable of succeeding not only in their initial assignments, but of achieving our client’s long-term corporate objectives. Towards that end:

  • We do not recruit employees from client companies.
  • We never reveal privileged information received from our clients or candidates.
  • We do not accept assignments for a search with which another firm is already engaged.
  • A client may terminate our activity at any time and we may do the same.

The NAER Difference

NAER membership comprises an organization of exceptionally qualified, successful executive search firms, each with a proven track record of service and achievement.

Only those firms who meet NAER’s rigorous standards are accepted for membership, and each submits to extensive scrutiny and reference process. Moreover, NAER demands adherence. While we cannot be held legally or financially responsible for the actions of individual firms, we will take prompt and appropriate action, through our Board of Directors, if a member firm is in violation of our code of ethics.
