At the end of every year, we at Top Echelon compile our statistics for that year and present those statistics to our Network members.

So as we dive into 2016 (I can hardly believe that’s already the second week), we have our statistics for 2015. Specifically, we have the Network split placements by discipline for the year.

Network placements: on the rise

Before we get to that, though, let’s address some good news. That news is that split placements in the Network have grown every year for the past four years. Here’s the progression:

  • 2012: +23%
  • 2013: +27%
  • 2014: +3%
  • 2015: +7%

As you might imagine, we’re gearing up for another year of growth in 2016, and as you can see by the chart below, there are plenty of opportunities for Top Echelon recruiters to make more placements. We hope that you enjoyed a good year both inside and outside of the Network last year, and we look forward to serving your recruiting needs even more this year!

Everybody wants to know the future of recruiting. (Well, that might be an exaggeration . . . every recruiter wants to know the future of recruiting.)

If you attend the 2016 Top Echelon National Convention this spring in Las Vegas, you’ll get a peek at the future!

That’s because popular trainer Greg Doersching of Bullseye Mentor will be the keynote speaker for the convention, and one of his sessions will deal specifically with the future of the industry. The session is rather aptly titled “The Future of Recruiting.” The session description is below.

“The Future of Recruiting” session description:

Where have we come from? Where are we now? Where are we going tomorrow with technology, candidates, clients, and running our business with the right information in hand? Industry trainer Greg Doersching will help you gauge your sights on being a successful agency for recruiting in tomorrow’s world.

The Future of Recruiting is just one of three sessions that Doersching will be presenting at the National Convention. The titles of the other sessions are as follows:

  • “Creating the Patterns of Prosperity, Part 1”
  • “Creating the Patterns of Prosperity, Part 2”

We determine recruiting winners in a number of different ways at Top Echelon, and we’ll be releasing the names of those winners in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog during the next few weeks.

The names that we’re announcing in this particular blog post are our regional recruiting winners for 2015. The formula for determining these winners is based upon the Frequent Placer Program (FPP) points that Network recruiters earn during the course of the calendar year.

Members can earn FPP points in a variety of ways, starting with making split placements. They can also earn them for telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and meeting other recruiting network members in person.

Below are the regional recruiting winners in Top Echelon Network for 2015, including the top five recruiters in each of the nine regions. We want to congratulate everybody and thank them for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to the Network during the past year!
