Top Echelon's split placement network—the screening process

Top Echelon Network employs a four-step screening process to ensure that only the highest quality recruiters become Preferred Members and have the opportunity to make split placements with other recruiters. Our four-step screening process is as follows:

  • Application—The first thing you will need to do to be considered for Membership is to fill out a Membership application.
  • Interview—Once we've reviewed your application, we'll want to speak with you to discuss your business and how Top Echelon Network and split placements fit into it.
  • Screening—Your name and company name will be posted as a prospect in the Members' Area of Top Echelon Network. This will give the current Membership the opportunity to provide us with any feedback they may have regarding you, your firm, and your split placement history.
  • Reference checking—Primarily, we strive to speak with other Top Echelon Network recruiters who have worked with you in the past in split placement situations. Beyond that, we will speak to other recruiters who have worked with you on split placements, as well as corporate references that can shed some light on how you operate as a recruiter.

Top Echelon's split placement network—The Four Pillars

The Network also strongly promotes that all recruiters adhere to the following Four Pillars in their quest to make more split placements—Quality, Communication, Trust, and Active Participation.

  • Quality—Quality encompasses everything that a Preferred Member recruiter of Top Echelon Network does, including sharing qualified candidates and detailed job orders with other recruiters. Not only do we strive to fill our Membership ranks with recruiters who have a split placement frame of mind, we're also committed to finding the highest quality recruiters in the industry.
  • Communication—Communication is by far the number-one way in which split placements are made in Top Echelon Network. We foster and facilitate communication through our system and our processes. This is why it's so important that all communication between Members is of the highest quality possible. There are many ways in which quality communication occurs within the Network, including face-to-face meetings, which we highly recommend, especially at a conference or convention.
  • Trust—Trust is the single most important ingredient for achieving long-term success in recruiting, especially at it pertains to the relationships that recruiters forge with their candidates and clients. Trust is also crucial for achieving success as a Preferred Member recruiter of Top Echelon Network. Once Members form relationships with one another, those recruiters develop the kind of genuine trust that is often difficult to find in this industry. We help recruiters achieve that level of trust through the building of substantial, long-lasting business relationships and personal friendships.
  • Active Participation—In order to enjoy success in Top Echelon—and eventually become a Top Producer—it's essential for a recruiter to make the Network a part of their desk every day, and we can show you the best ways to do that. Regardless of the role that split placements play in your business model, actively participating in the Network (searching the database, posting job orders and candidates, calling other recruiters, etc.) can help you to maximize that role. Our methodology has been refined over the past 23 years, so that our process fits into your desk on an everyday basis and enhances what you do as a recruiter.

Top Echelon's split placement network—The philosophy

Top Echelon Network is a split placement network for experienced, split-minded recruiters who have made split placements a part of their business model, who have incorporated the split placement process into their desk, and who want to make more split placements in the future. At Top Echelon Network, we believe that "half a loaf" (split placement) is better than "no loaf" (no placement at all). These are additional split placements that recruiters may not have made because of a number of different factors, including time constraints, limited resources, the fact that the placement was out of their niche, etc.

Recruiters who share information with one another, communicate on a consistent basis, and build and develop their relationships to the point that they trust their Trading Partners completely make split placements. There are recruiters in Top Echelon Network right now who are making split placements with one another, and they want to make split placements with you, too.
