Okay, so we had to postpone the 2020 Top Echelon Network National Convention. (Otherwise known as TE Connect.)

The convention was originally scheduled for April 30-May 1 in Las Vegas. Now Vegas will be the site of the 2021 convention next year.

What we are NOT postponing (or canceling altogether) is the 2020 Network Awards Ceremony for Top Producers in our recruiting network during the calendar year of 2019. How are we going to do this, you may ask?

We’re going to do it virtually, from the comfort of our own homes!

The first Top Echelon Network Virtual Awards Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 12, at 3 p.m., Eastern Time. The platform for this event will be Google Meetings, and I will share the login information with you at the end of this blog post.

Everybody is encouraged to attend, but I would consider attendance almost mandatory if you have made a placement with one of the following Network recruiters:

  • Michael Agen of New Solutions Group, LLC
  • Kerry Boehner of KOB Solutions, Inc.
  • Trey Cameron of the Cameron Craig Group
  • Maria Hemminger of MJ Recruiters, LLC
  • Steve Kohn of Affinity Executive Search
  • John Peterson of Sun Recruiting, Inc.
  • Darrin Skinner of Howe & Associates
  • Terry Rhodes of NewCareers
  • Kristy Staggs of Byrnes & Rupkey, Inc.
  • Michael Stuck of the Gables Search Group
  • Anjela Mangrum of Mangrum Career Solutions, LLC

Top Echelon Training Specialist J.D. Fye recently conducted a special Network training webinar titled, “Presenting New Network Placements in the TE Software!”

You may have attended this free webinar on Monday, June 1. On the other hand, you may have not. Regardless, we have the recorded version of the webinar, which I am presenting to you now. (The recording is now permanently located in the Top Echelon Help Center.)

I encourage every member of Top Echelon Network to watch this training video and become accustomed with the new Network Placements functionality within the TE software. We at Top Echelon are continually working to make the resources that we provide to our customers better, and this is more proof!

Below is the official description of this webinar video:

At Top Echelon, we’re constantly upgrading both the Big Biller recruiting software and our split placement network software. So we’re pleased to announce the following updates:

1. Manage User Sessions Page — Those with user management permissions can now access the new Manage User Sessions page that allows you to see the last 30 days worth of login session data from users on your account.

2. New Notification: Expected Payment Date Reminder We’ve added the ability to receive a Notification (in-software and via email) as a reminder when a Placement’s expected payment date arrives.

3. Placement Report Updates — The Placement Report received several updates that provide you with more information, as well as prepare it for the upcoming Network Placement system:

  • New Split Type Filter — The Split Type filter allows you to further narrow down your results.
  • Broader Users Filter — The Users filter has been expanded to return anything that the selected user(s) were involved in as either the Candidate Recruiter or the Job Recruiter.
  • Split Amounts in Table Details Columns have been added to the Table Details view to display the breakdown of Job Recruiter Fee, Candidate Recruiter Fee, and Additional Partners Fee.
  • Total Fee Breakdown In addition to the existing Total Fee stat at the bottom of the report, we’ve added two breakdown stats for Total Agency Fees and Total External Fees.

4. Expanded Network Job Alert Limit — The Network Job Alert limit has been increased to 50 to allow for more automated searches per user.
