3coast, a member/owner of NPA Worldwide, is proud to announce the recent implementation of an International Contract Staffing model utilizing trusted NPA Worldwide affiliates in foreign countries. The model offers a seamless, single point of contact for one of 3coast’s multinational chemical manufacturing client. After many years as a preferred partner, 3coast was tasked by the client to enhance the relationship on a global scale.
3coast receives the order for personnel and then engages the trusted member/owner partners of NPA Worldwide to do the search locally in the foreign location. The NPA Worldwide member/owners are independent, locally owned and operated, successful staffing firms who possess intimate knowledge of the cultures, hiring practices, compensation requirements and common processes in their local market. The member/owners have a mature database of local IT talent unmatched by international providers who depend upon branches and branch managers who may not be from the regions.
The local member/owner provides payroll services in local currencies, thereby alleviating the difficulties in currency exchange. The local member/owner pays the consultant in accordance with local country guidelines, and then invoices 3coast who in turn consolidates all billing to the domestic client. In so doing, the client experiences a reduction in administrative costs and avoids the hassles of currency exchange differences.
“We are very excited about the implementation of 3coast’s international model,” says the client’s IT&S International Director, “because the single point of contact for a search, and for invoicing and payments reduces our costs and streamlines our hiring of international consultants. 3coast has been a trusted staffing partner for over seven years and this expanded capability will prove to be a valuable addition to their service for our company.”
