Statistics for the First Quarter in Top Echelon

Welcome to the statistics for the first quarter in Top Echelon’s recruiting network. However, before we dive into the numbers that we typically release with our quarterly statistics, let’s address split placements.

Specifically, let’s address split placements during the first months of 2019 as compared to the first three months of 2018. And let’s start with the fact that placements in the Network were up in 2018 in comparison to 2017. In fact, placements were up 11.2%.

Despite that double-digit increase, Network placements are indeed up. And once again, the increase is a double-digit percentage, 15% to be exact.

In this issue of The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, we’re breaking down the first quarter statistics in terms of three categories. They are job orders, candidates, and placements in relation to the disciplines within Top Echelon Network. (Editors’s note: the percentages more than 100% in certain categories since those categories can be tagged with more than one discipline.)E members are making the most money in the Network.

As you can see, there are some interesting trends regarding the statistics presented above. Among those trends:

  • Once again, the most placements are being made in Industry & Manufacturing (30.8%).
  • Only two other disciplines cracked double digits in terms of placements. They were Healthcare (19.5%) and Engineering (18.2%).
    Industry & Manufacturing is also the discipline that boasts the most job orders (29.5%) and candidates (49.2%).
  • Once upon a time, Healthcare was in the top five in the Network in terms of these categories. It seems as though it’s making a comeback. Or a mini-comeback, at the very least.

These statistics for the first quarter of the year are in line with other statistics that we’ve published lately. In other words, they’re positive. Once again, these numbers bode well for the second quarter and the rest of the year in the Network.
