4. NALTO members act on best interests of client and candidate
Recruiters in other industries generally act on the best interest of the client they’re serving, but when you work with a staffing company that is a member of NALTO, you can expect your recruiter to act on the best interests of both clients and candidates. In accordance with NALTO’s code of ethics, organizations should play neutral roles in the placement process. Organizations should act on behalf of the clients as long as they’re not making misleading or false statements to candidates – and they must accurately represent a candidate’s work history and qualifications.
