Poll: Recruiting Desks with Multiple Personalities

Can you believe that the year is three-fourths over? Actually, I can’t believe it. However, we must collectively deal with this cruel reality. (Especially since summer is over.)

We’re also at the end of a quarter—the third quarter, specifically. The end of a quarter is typically a good time to analyze your desk. Since many of you might be analyzing your recruiting desks right now, we thought this would be a good time for a Members’ Area poll. (When I saw “we,” I really mean “I.”)

Here’s what we (I) rolled out to our recruiting network membership:

Finish this sentence: through the first three quarters of 2017, my recruiting desk . . .

The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of split network recruiters that selected each one:

  • Is on FIRE! — 10.0%
  • Is running like a well-oiled machine. — 22.0%
  • Quite possibly has multiple personalities. — 48.0%
  • Needs a timeout. — 4.0%
  • Will need a miracle to match last year’s production. — 16.0%

Revelations regarding recruiting desks

The most popular answer to our poll about recruiting desks pretty much sums up the year for a lot of recruiters. That answer is “quite possibly has multiple personalities” at 48% of the vote.

So what does that mean? More than likely, it means that sometimes things are really good and sometimes things are really bad. In addition, recruiters probably can’t seem to get into any kind of a “groove” or build any real momentum. Any positive momentum, anyway.

There is good news, though. The percentage of recruiters who indicated that their recruiting desks are “running like a well-oiled machine” stood at 22%. In addition, 10% stated that their desks are “on FIRE!”

Sandwiched between those two responses: “will need a miracle to match last year’s production” at 16%. Clearly, there are some Network recruiters who are trailing at the start of the fourth quarter.

Last but least (statistically speaking), 4% of members chose “needs a timeout” as their answer. They apparently believe that their recruiting desks have been misbehaving. Or they might well be out of control entirely.

No matter where you are with one quarter left in 2017, we at Top Echelon Network can help. We can help you put the tools and resources of Top Echelon to work for YOU. (And this time, when I say “we,” I really do mean “we.”)
