We can’t wait for you to “meet” the exciting new Professional Tier features of our recruiting software on Friday, September 1, so we thought we’d give you a sneak-peek!

In case you missed it, here is August’s Training Tuesday webinar recording, during which Top Echelon Success Manager J.D. walks viewers through some of the new features.

You can also read about the new features of the Professional Tier below.

Automations: Ever wished you could automate something simple like an early-stage rejection email? Our Automations feature will let you do just that, and we’re adding new Automation Triggers and Actions all the time.

When you disqualify a candidate in your Inbox or other early stage (Trigger), let TE send the candidate a short, sweet, personalized rejection email (Action) or even invite them to apply for your other positions.

Forms: Do you wish you could have a more complete picture of a new candidate as soon as they apply to your job? Set up a custom Form to ask any questions you’d like to have saved to fields in TE or straight to a PDF for questions that don’t have fields.

Get all the answers that a simple resume can’t give you and more quickly qualify or disqualify new candidates as they come in!

Organizational Chart: Larger teams require structure, and now Top Echelon will let you record that structure among your users. When managing or creating users, list who reports to whom and allow that new structure to flow through to your Reporting.

We can hardly wait to enable your Professional Tier trial next week so you can get your hands on these shiny new features.

You’ll be able to find them when you login on September 1!

Okay, by now you should know about the dates of Top Echelon Connect Fall 2023, the event formerly known as the Fall Conference. You should also know that registration for the event is well underway.

Barb Bruno, CPC/CTS

And you might even know that esteemed industry trainer Barb Bruno, CPC/CTS of Good as Gold Training is the keynote speaker for the conference. But even if you know all of that, I’m here with more information.

This new information involves the titles and descriptions of the specific sessions that Barb will be presenting to Top Echelon Network members in Chicago next month. Since you may not have checked out the preliminary agenda for TE Connect Fall 2023, I thought I’d save you the trouble and publish Barb’s sessions in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog.

You’re welcome.

August is just about over, which is difficult to believe. It seems like it was just yesterday that it was June 1 and all of summer was ahead of us.

Well, not all of summer is left, but there is still a piece of it remaining. That would, of course, include the upcoming Labor Day holiday.

Labor Day hours

As has been the case for several years, the Top Echelon offices will be closed on Labor Day. This year, that day is Monday, September 4. And, in case you’re wondering, “Top Echelon offices” refers to the following:

Our officers will re-open at 8 a.m. for business as usual on the following day: Tuesday, September 5.

I’d like to take a moment to encourage you to spend time with your friends and loved ones this weekend. This is a good opportunity to “catch your breath” before the final four months of 2023 arrive.

Also, please exercise caution and be careful while you travel. We’ll keep everybody in our thoughts and prayers as you do so.

We hope that you all enjoy a great holiday weekend!

Yes, we did invite you to follow Top Echelon Software on LinkedIn in last week’s issue of The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog.

However, so that we can focus more on split placements in a deliberate fashion, we’ve created a LinkedIn page specifically for Top Echelon Network.

This page is separate from the Top Echelon Software page, and as such, will contain different information. The Top Echelon Network page will consist of all things split placements and recruiter networking. We will post and share any and everything that we believe will help you make more splits and generate more revenue for your agency.

Yes, we will share some of the information contained in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog on this page. However, there will also be a lot other information specific to splits on the Top Echelon Network LinkedIn page.

Please note: This is NOT a private page, nor a private group. While the majority of followers might be Top Echelon Network members, non-members will also be able to join. (There might be a four-step screening process to join the Network, but there is not one to follow this page.)

I know we’re asking a lot, requesting that you follow us on not one, but TWO LinkedIn pages. But we’d appreciate it if you did and we thank you in advance for doing so. Not that we’re automatically assuming that you’re going to, or anything like that . . . we’re not taking your loyalty for granted, if that’s what you think . . . never mind. Just click the link below to follow us:

Follow Top Echelon NETWORK on LinkedIn!

Great! Now that you’ve followed the Top Echelon Network AND Top Echelon Software pages on LinkedIn, you can never get away from us! We’re everywhere!
