At Top Echelon, we like to recognize recruiters for their production in the Network, especially those recruiters who “fly below the radar.”
We have just such a recruiter is who “flying below the radar,” somebody who has both kept a low profile and made placements almost immediately upon joining the Network as a Preferred Member.
In fact, considering the fact that she’s only been in the profession since 2012, it’s remarkable that she’s been as productive as she’s been during these past three years.
However, we’re not complaining . . . and neither are her Trading Partners, who have been the direct beneficiaries of her fine work.
Below are six reasons that Catherine Bateman of Woods & Paolino Recruiting Solutions is the Recruiter of the Week in Top Echelon Network:
#1—She’s unerringly consistent.
Since becoming a Preferred Member recruiter three years ago, Catherine has made four Network split placements in 2012, six Network splits in 2013, and three TE splits in 2014. Once again, if every Top Echelon recruiter made Network split placements at that pace, we’d throw a ticker-tape parade.
What does this mean? It means that Catherine does NOT view split placements as a last resort. She pro-actively looks for ways to make split placements, and as a result, she communicates with her Trading Partners on a consistent basis.
#3—She provides a positive experience for Trading Partners.
Communicating on a consistent basis is just one of the ways that Catherine provides a positive experience for her Trading Partners. As we’ve documented on many occasions, The Four Pillars of Top Echelon Network represents the best way to provide a positive experience, and Catherine adheres to all of them: Quality, Communication, Trust, and Active Participation. They’ve formed the foundation of her success and the basis for her popularity with Trading Partners.
#4—She always praises her Trading Partners.
Of course, Catherine’s Trading Partners also appreciate the fact that she always praises them for their efforts. It should be noted that Catherine emailed praise regarding the three Trading Partners listed below to the Top Echelon offices. She has done so with just about every split placement she’s made in the Network. She fully appreciates her Trading Partners, and she communicates that appreciation.
#5—She exhibits tremendous patience.
Check out the comments listed below. In two of the three instances, her Trading Partners made special note of Catherine’s patience during the placement process. Patience is an often overlooked virtue, not only in Trading Partner relationships, but also in recruiting in general. It’s an important asset and one that can pay off handsomely.
#6—She’s an excellent exporter.
In addition to her patience, Catherine’s Trading Partners also praise the quality of the candidates that she provides. And we’re talking about candidates for high-level positions, such as a National Sales Manager, a Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and a Global Marketing Strategy Manager. Accompanying all of these positions were hefty salaries and corresponding hefty placement fees . . . that Catherine’s Trading Partners were more than willing to share with her.
So congratulations to Catherine Bateman from everybody here at Top Echelon! Thanks for your hard work and commitment as a Preferred Member recruiter in the Network.
