Save the date . . . for the 2020 Top Echelon National Convention, that is!

It’s hard to believe that 2019 is nearly over . . . but it is. So with that in mind, there’s no time like the present to prepare for 2020. And specifically, there’s no time like the present to prepare to join us for the National Convention.

Below is some important logistical information regarding the upcoming convention:

Dates: Thursday, April 30, and Friday, May 1
Location: Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada
Room Rate: $79 per night
Speaker: Greg Doersching of Bullseye Mentor

No, I’m not asking you to register for the National Convention right now. Registration won’t even be available for another few weeks. However, I AM asking that you take out a calendar and circle the dates of April 30 and May 1. (That’s what we mean by “save the date.”)

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. There are tremendous benefits to attending recruiter networking events like next year’s Top Echelon National Convention.

However, all of these benefits boil down to making more split placements!

  • Meet new recruiters working in your niche.
  • Build new split recruiting partner relationships.
  • Strengthen existing relationships.
  • Share hot job orders and candidates.

In addition, anybody who’s attended one of our events knows how much fun they are. Not just a little bit of fun. A LOT of fun.

And in case you didn’t notice, we’re going to LAS VEGAS for the National Convention. So if you attend the convention and you don’t have any fun, well, that’s on you.

And in case you didn’t notice something else, the room rate that we’ve secured for Harrah’s is just $79 per night. I mean, what MORE of an excuse do you need?

We’ll be releasing more information about the 2020 National Convention in future issues of The Pinnacle. Also check the Members’ Area and your email inbox for more announcements.

Save the date! And join us in Las Vegas next year!

The title of this blog post presents a fair question. What DO you need most on your recruiting desk right now?

Well, you might think that every single recruiter would identify “more candidates” as what they need the most. Alas, that is not the case.

How do we know this? Because this is a question we recently posed to the Top Echelon Network Membership in the form of a poll.

You might also think that “more time” would be the most popular answer to this poll question. If you thought that would be the case, then you would be wrong.

No, as usual, the truth is a bit more complicated and convoluted than that. In fact, as you can see below, there are plenty of recruiters who would like more job orders and clients in this overwhelmingly candidate-driven market.

But enough speculation. Below are the actual results of two poll questions that we recently posed to Top Echelon Network recruiters.

  • More candidates — 38.0%
  • More time — 6.3%
  • More resources and/or personnel — 5.1%
  • Something else — 1.3%

With Thanksgiving this week, which group represents the biggest “turkeys” on your recruiting desk this year?

The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of recruiters selecting each one:

  • Candidates — 25.4%
  • Hiring authorities — 26.9%
  • Human resources personnel — 16.4%
  • Other recruiters — 9.0%
  • Me, I’ve been my own biggest “turkey.” — 22.4%

Just a reminder: we post a poll question in the Top Echelon Members’ Area every week. Once you participate in the poll, you can see the results as other Members cast their votes.

We usually post a new Members’ Area poll question on Monday. We usually do that, but we don’t always do that.
