About the List

In developing the ranking of "America’s Best Recruiting Firms," Forbes writes that it partnered with Statista.  The broad field of recruitment firms was divided into two main categories, Executive Search, which includes firms that place executives in positions with more than $100,000 per year in income, and Professional Search, representing firms who work filling professional and specialist positions that pay up to $100,000 income per year.

According to Statista, the ranking in these categories were based on two surveys:

·       A client survey including 4,500 candidates and HR-managers who were clients of recruitment firms within the last three years; and

·       A survey of 30,000 external recruiters from recruiting firms who were invited, as experts, to share their market insights.

The surveys took place between mid-December 2017 and mid-February 2018.   Each respondent could name up to ten recruiting firms per category.  Providing a recommendation was not mandatory and an auto-complete function helped the respondent to select a recruiting firm. Respondents also were able to recommend any recruiting firm which did not appear in the auto-complete list.  In total, 6,500 respondents took this year’s surveys with more than 14,500 nominations of recruiting firms.
