7 things you probably wish you could say to employees, but can't : 13 Nov 2012


As managers, the expectation is on us to understand our employees, which is not always easy. There are things that they will never tell us.

In the same way, there’s a lot of things that we don't share with employees. Following are 7 things you probably wish you could say to employees, but can't.

'I care about whether you like me. I want you to like me. When I come off like a hard-ass who doesn’t care about your opinion of me, it’s an act. My business is an extension of myself. I want you to like it. And me.

'I think it’s great when you’re having fun. You don’t have to lower your voice and pretend to be working hard when I walk by. I know it’s possible to work hard and have a little fun at the same time. When you enjoy what you do, it makes me feel a little better about my company and myself. I get to feel like I’ve created something more than just a business.'

'I want to pay you more. I would love to be the employer of choice in the industry.  I can’t, mostly due to financial constraints but partly because the risks I’ve taken require a reasonable reward. If I go out of business tomorrow, you lose your job. That's terrible, I know. But I lose my business, my investment, my credit, my house… sometimes I lose everything. Someday, when you start your business, I promise you’ll understand.'

'I want you to work here forever. Job-hopping may be a fact of business life, but as an owner it’s a fact I hate. I don’t see you as a disposable part. When you leave, it hurts. A part of me feels like I’ve failed. I want to own the kind of business people hope to retire from.'

'I notice when others don’t pull their weight. I’m not blind. But I won’t discipline those individuals in front of you. No employees, no matter how poorly they perform, loses their right to confidentiality and privacy. And sometimes I won’t discipline them at all, because occasionally more is going on than you know. You wouldn’t realise that, though, because often-times…

'There are things I just can’t tell you. Even though I would love to, and even though you and I have become friends.'

'Ownership is the smorgasbord of insecurity. I worry about sales. I worry about costs. I worry about facilities and employees and suppliers and customers and… you name it, I worry about it. So occasionally I’m snappy. Occasionally I’m distracted. Occasionally I’m tense and irritable and short-tempered. It’s not your fault. I’m just worried.

More than anything, I’m worried about whether I can fulfil the trust you placed in me as your employer.'

Have a great week,

Tips for creating engaged employees : 22 Nov 2012


Recent news from Seek is that 74% of Australians are interested in information about employment opportunities. "Our recent SEEK Jobseeker update research reveals that whether or not they are actively applying for roles (26% active) or monitoring the market (48% passive) the one thing they have in common is that they are all interested in what you have to say."
This is great news for HealthyPeople advertisers, as ALL our ads are posted to thousands of industry specific 'passive' candidates on our database.

Speaking of which, please check out who's been accessing our database (below) - more than double the number of employers from last week! Are you networking with great local candidates as they arise or waiting for the emergency before you start recruiting?

Once you've got them, the next thing is to keep them, following are some tips...

Pay is important, but it only goes so far.

Higher wages won’t cause employees to automatically perform at a higher level. Studies show repeatedly that commitment, work ethic, and motivation are not based on pay.

If you want an employee to truly care about your business, make use of the following:

1. Latitude (or Freedom). Providing some autonomy and latitude breeds engagement, satisfaction and even innovation. Even heavily systemised positions have room for different approaches. Whenever possible, give your employees the freedom to work they way they work best.

2. Targets. Goals are fun. Everyone is at least a little competitive, if only with themselves. Targets create a sense of purpose and add a little meaning to even the most repetitive tasks.

Without a goal to shoot for, work is just work. And work sucks.

3. Mission. We all like to feel a part of something bigger. Striving to be worthy of words like "best", "largest", "fastest" or "highest quality" provides a sense of purpose. Let employees know what you want to achieve, for your business, for customers, and even your community. And if you can, let them create a few missions of their own. 

4. Expectations. While every job should include some degree of latitude, every job needs basic expectations regarding the way specific situations should be handled. When standards change make sure you communicate those changes first. When you can't, explain why this particular situation is different, and why you made the decision you made.

5. Input. Everyone wants to offer suggestions. Deny employees the opportunity to make suggestions, or shoot their ideas down without consideration, and you create robots.

Robots don't care.

Make it easy for employees to offer suggestions. When an idea doesn't have merit, take the time to explain why. You can't implement everything, but you can always make employees feel valued.

6. Connection. Employees don’t want to work for a paycheck; they want to work with, and for, people. A kind word, a short discussion about family, a brief check-in to see if they need anything... those individual moments are much more important than meetings or formal evaluations.

7. Consistency. Most people can deal with a boss who is demanding and quick to criticise... as long as he or she treats every employee the same. While you should treat each employee differently, you must treat each employee fairly. (There's a big difference.)

The key to maintaining consistency is to communicate. The more employees understand why a decision was made the less likely they are to assume favouritism or unfair treatment.

8. Future. Every job should have the potential to lead to something more, either within or outside your company. This includes taking the time to develop employees for jobs they someday hope to fill?even if those positions are outside your company. (How will you know what they hope to do? Try asking.)

Employees will care about your business when you care about them first.

Which is probably sound advice for any relationship.

Have a great week,

How to Screen Potential Candidates Online, Fire in the office, New site coming soon : 05 Dec 2012

Fire trucks outside the office is never good. It turned out there was a small fire, started by a faulty fan in the bathroom. No fire, smoke or water damage but the power was off for half the day. As a result we're a little late with today's newsletter.

Last month saw the highest number of downloaded CVs in our history (347). Thank you to the 'Innovators' and 'Early adapters' that have given this new method of recruiting a go. "Hello 'Early majority', call me. We're doing some great work here". 'Late majority' and 'Laggards', I'll be with you soon.

The early mail; We have a new web site due for initial release in the very near future. It's like HealthyPeople, but on STEROIDS! Stay tuned.

Enjoy the article...



Call it what you will
; data mining, identity research, online screening or social recruiting, no matter what the term, more than 90% of employers use social media to screen employees.

This online screening can be an important part of your due diligence ? using public information posted by the candidates themselves. If, like many employers, you are looking into the Internet presence of your potential hires, here are a few ways to make sure you do it right.

1. Start With a Search
No one these days should be surprised at just how much information you can find with a Google search. Of course, a search can be clouded by results if a candidate has a common name, so digging a bit deeper into their resume to cross-reference employment claims, association membership or volunteer work is handy.

2. Don’t Wait to Check Their Profiles
Start researching candidates before your first contact to arrange an interview or call. Many candidates can be short-sighted in regards to their online personas, only cleaning them up once they know someone is interested. And even then, a 2010 study showed that half of applicants would not change or delete content from their profiles, even if they knew a potential employer would be checking their page.

 

Assistant Club General Manager role

With fitness industry experience, you will have been exposed to club management
within a health and fitness setting, preferably with a multi-facility group like Fenix. [more]

 

3. Find Candidates Who Build a Brand
While (too) many potential employees torpedo their job hopes with inappropriate pictures, political rants or dubious associations, just as many are responsible administrators of their online persona. These candidates will be readily identifiable with even modest searching. Here are a few things to look for on major social networks:

  • Facebook ? Look for candidates who share content related to their industry, rather than updates about where they partied last night.
  • LinkedIn ? LinkedIn should be every recruiter’s dream. Many people will use it just to share their job status and resumes, but with the wide range of discussion forums and online networking tools, LinkedIn makes it easy to identify candidates who are engaged in the industry and looking to advance.
  • Twitter ? While Facebook pictures can tell you a lot about someone, how a candidate interacts with a global audience can be more telling. Look for people who engage positively and intelligibly with people and companies.

4. Look for Repetitive Behaviour, Not Isolated Incidents
Look beyond occasional images and posts to see if the applicant has a personality or sense of humour that would fit with your company. Only if the candidate shows a pattern of objectionable behaviour should you consider losing their application.


Experienced Club Manager needed in Pakenham.
You'll be a driven and focused professional, who's hungry for success. You won't be afraid to try new things in your bid to make this the 'go to' fitness venue for our area. [more]

 

5. Don’t Penalise Responsible Candidates
It can be tempting to respond negatively to candidates that have their online presence so locked-down (or nonexistent) that you can’t find any information. Is this candidate too good to be true or just hiding something? More often than not, it just means that the candidate is a responsible manager of their online presence.

A potential employee who is responsible enough to moderate their social media will probably make a responsible employee. Rather than penalising employees who show little information, dig into the information they have provided. Call their references, review their contacts on LinkedIn and prepare some extra questions for an interview.

6. Be Cautious With Your Screening
There is no law against looking online, but there is a law against discriminating based on something seen online. If a candidate believes they are being discriminated against as a result of something you've seen or read, you may find your precious time and money consumed by an unplanned legal stoush.

7. Don’t Let Your Screening be the End of the Story.
If a candidate looks great on paper, don’t let a few online indiscretions rule them out. Follow up on their interests and passions in an interview and ask for reasonable clarification of any concerns you may have.

Have a great week,

Forget predictions, here's 10 Skills Every Leader Should Develop In 2013 : 07 Jan 2013

Welcome to 2013! We hope your are set for a fantastic year in the health and fitness business.

There are very big things happening around HealthyPeople at present. We have a new site launching soon that will provide employers with the ability to tap into students and graduates from local Universities, TAFEs and RTOs. If you'd like to be informed of progress, please contact me via this link.


If you have specific employment/recruitment related events throughout the year, please let me know. We're always keen to share this information with our subscribers.

Enjoy the article...


Forget about your predictions for 2013, why not get stuck into the things you can directly influence.

As an industry leader (or aspiring industry leader), there are a number of skills that will help you get more out of this year, whatever happens. The more you develop these skills, the better equipped you are for anything the industry might throw your way.

1. Arithmetic - Maths is cool. Especially in business. Learn how to create and use a spreadsheet to your best advantage. Numbers matter and what gets measured gets done.

2. Business and Accounting - I'm not saying you have to become Gordon Gecko, but a greater appreciation for what can make a business rise or fall is a healthy thing.
   
3. Curation - There is so much information available to us, being able to find the right data at the right moment is crucial. Knowing how to locate accurate and timely information on all things is critical to our success.

Trainers we are looking for the best of the best to be our

4. Decision-Making - Consensus building is an art. And it’s not the answer for every type of decision. Knowing when to make decisions independently and when to involve others is important. It’s equally important to realise when a decision must be made and when to wait a few days or weeks.

5. Networking - To survive in business, a person must have a network. Leaders should constantly build relationships. You never know who might be able to open a door or share knowledge. Never, ever pass up the opportunity to meet people.

6. Problem Solving - Business is all about fixing problems. Learning a system for identifying, analysing and solving problems will improve both your personal and professional life.

7. Public Speaking - You don’t have to be a keynote speaker or facilitate a full-day workshop. But do get comfortable with standing up in front of a crowd and talking. At minimum, be able to articulate who you are and what you do for a living.

8. Recreation - Adopt a work hard/play hard attitude. Be the best business leader you can be. Then find the time and the activity to keep you grounded.

---


"We had a great response from the ad and seems we have
found what we need."

Lydia Docking, Jetts Neutral Bay

 

---


9. Self-Management - Know yourself. Know how to manage yourself. Be confident and comfortable identifying when you’re stressed or struggling. Recognise what energises you and what drains your energy. The more leaders understand about themselves, the better they will manage their own behaviours.
   
10. Writing - This last one might sound silly…but know grammar basics. More importantly, refine your writing style. Try different approaches of explaining your logic. Practice composing succinct thoughts. Seth Godin does this well.

Beyond being a stronger and more adaptable leader, learning new skills is fantastic for brain health, creates more opportunities to connect with others and increases your value to current and future employers.

Have fantastic week.

Are you kissing enough frogs? (and where to find them). : 27 Jan 2013

One thing I've learned after meeting a few managers recently is that they're all playing a numbers game. Their experience reveals that, to get the right people on board, you've got to meet a lot of people. It seemed appropriate, therefore, to put together an article for all managers on the value of 'kissing a few frogs'.


You’ve heard the saying “You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince,” well the same logic applies to finding the best candidates. If you want a prince (or princess) for your business, you've got to grab the opportunity to kiss a bunch of frogs when it arises.

A Meeting Is a Kiss
Each time you contact a candidate you're on a fast track to finding the professional prince (or princess) you're looking for. On the other hand, the less frequently you network with candidates in your area, the lower your chances of building an optimal team. Until you have a conversation with someone and learn more about them, you can never know what the potential is. The more frogs you kiss, the better your processes will become for identifying the frogs sooner rather than later.

Manager to take our newly opened club to its

An Interview Is a Kiss
Obviously not all interviews will translate into job offers. In fact, the majority of them won’t. But each interview is a kiss. It offers potential. Do you have a process of regularly interviewing candidates? When I was a Personal Training Manager, experience showed that for every three Trainers I put on, I would lose two - either from the new recruits and/or existing staff. In any case, the net gain from three appointments was one extra team member.

It's important to interview, and interview often. Whether or not you're hiring right now is irrelevant. If a great candidate shows up with a CV and they pass your initial assessment, make a time to get to know them. You never know what's going to happen tomorrow. Never turn down the opportunity for a kiss. How much is a great employee (or PT rental) worth to your business?

Even a Job Offer Is a Kiss
All signs pointed to the fact that you had found your prince (or princess)! But, alas, the fairytale candidate turned out to be a bust. It happens. The frog we thought was a prince was, in fact, just a pretty good looking frog. Look for the moral of the story (there always is one) and get back into kissing more frogs! I've never met an employer or manager (myself included) that doesn't have a horror story or two to tell.

---

Club Manager Opportunities available with Jetts - ACT
We are looking for seriously skilled and qualified
Club Managers to maximise opportunities and drive

Finding Frogs is a Lot Easier Than It Used To Be
Given that searching for Frogs should be done on an ongoing basis, following are a number of ways to find staff outside of posting job ads;

  • Existing staff - If they're enjoying their job, do they know of anyone else that may enjoy working with you as well.
  • Members/clients - Do they have friends or family that might be interested in a fitness role?
  • Social networks - Invite friends and followers to send in an application for consideration
  • Your web site - Make the careers link prominent and encourage visitors to send in a CV.
  • HealthyPeople - The undisputed leading source of fitness candidates on an ongoing basis (and, ahem, for job ads)

So get out there and kiss a few Frogs. If you've kissed a frog and the story is something other managers may appreciate, please send it through.

Have fantastic week and don't forget to check out some of our frogs!

Simple Changes - Big Returns : 26 Feb 2013

I am a huge believer in the power of 'The Lizard Brain', or 'System 1', or 'The Unconscious Mind' - whatever you want to call it. Essentially, we are guided by thoughts we are not conscious of, and in turn, we can influence the nature of these unconscious thoughts. With this in mind, following are a few simple ways to influence your outlook on the day...

 

Change is a pretty daunting prospect, but what if a few simple changes to your daily routine could have a significant impact on your life and career?

 

If you've got an open mind with an interest in exploring new avenues for professional and personal growth, why not attempt a few (if not all) of the following ideas?

Start each day with expectation.
If there's any big truth about life, it's that it usually lives up to (or down to) your expectations. Therefore, when you rise from bed, make your first thought: "something wonderful is going to happen today." The funny thing is, you'll probably be right.

Take time to plan and prioritise.
The most common source of stress is the perception that you've got too much work to do.  Rather than obsess about it, pick one thing that, if you get it done today, will move you closer to your highest goal and purpose in life. Then do that first.

Membership Sales Manager - Genesis Casuarina
You must have a proven track record of personal
success. You'll be fiercely competitive, creative,

leadership ability. [more]

---

Give a gift to everyone you meet.
I'm not talking about a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod. And never pass beggars without leaving them something. Peace of mind is worth the spare change.

Deflect partisan conversations.
Arguments about politics and religion never have a "right" answer but they definitely get people all riled up over things they can't control. When such topics surface, bow out by saying something like: "Thinking about that stuff makes my head hurt."

Assume people have good intentions.
Since you can't read minds, you don't really know the "why" behind the "what" that people do. Imputing evil motives to other people's weird behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation.

Eat high quality food (slowly).
Sometimes we can't avoid scarfing something quick to keep us up and running. Even so, at least once a day try to eat something really delicious, like a small chunk of fine cheese or an imported chocolate. Focus on it; taste it; savor it. I think the idea here is reflected in this article, Pay Too Much, by Allen Tucker.

Let go of your results.

The big enemy of happiness is worry, which comes from focusing on events that are outside your control. Once you've taken action, there's usually nothing more you can do. Focus on the job at hand rather than some weird fantasy of what might happen. (Check out Stephen Covey's 'circle of influence and circle of concern' in 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People')

Turn off "background" TV.
Many households leave their TVs on as "background noise" while they're doing other things. The entire point of broadcast TV is to make you dissatisfied with your life so that you'll buy more stuff. Why subliminally program yourself to be a mindless consumer? When you do sit down to watch a show, make the most of recorded TV. Skip through the ads, again avoiding unnecessary subliminal programming.

End each day with gratitude.
Just before you go to bed, write down at least one wonderful thing that happened. It might be something as small as a making a child laugh or something as huge as a million dollar deal. Whatever it is, be grateful for that day because it will never come again.

If you've made it this far, there's a part of you interested in trying something new. Take a few items from this list and and make them happen for the next 21 days. There's nothing to lose and you may gain more than you expected.

"Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions." - Oliver Wendell Holmes

Have a fantastic and profitable week.

One Thing That Really Cheeses Off Job Applicants : 17 Mar 2015

Job-Updates-Blog

As we gather more feedback on what job applicants enjoy and don’t enjoy about the job application process, one thing comes up again and again….

Never hearing back from employers regarding their application.

Sure, it’s fair for any applicant to assume that if they’ve had no word from an employer, they’re no longer in the running for the job. The problem is, as a candidate, until you completely give up hope, you’re left waiting anxiously for any word on your application progress.

This can manifest itself in email and phone enquiries to employers, which is interrupting to our day to day schedule. It doesn’t look good for the candidate and can be an annoyance / interruption for the employer.

Do you want to attract the best candidates?

The best candidates want to know that you’re on top of things. They want to know that you care. And keeping applicants informed of the recruiting process goes a long way towards answering both these questions. It shows a level of respect for those that applied and sets a benchmark for how your (future) staff are to operate when working under your banner.

Here’s TWO WAYS that HealthyPeople can help you make the best possible impression with applicants.

FIRSTLY, use the HealthyPeople Job Feed.

This is a new micro blogging tool attached to every job. When logged in, head to your ad preview and select ‘View Feed’ or ‘Add post’. Both of these take you to a page where you can contribute to the post attached to your job. For example, when the ad is first listed, post to the Job Ad Feed that you’ll be updating applicants on progress via the feed. You can also invite contributions from those that would like to know more.

Not only is information in one place for other candidates considering the role, one update saves you notifying many. That is, you’re able to provide candidates with the desired feedback on general progress without taking more than a couple of minutes from your schedule.

SECONDLY, get HealthyPeople to notify unsuccessful candidates.

As part of our job advertising service we can send ‘Thank you, the position has been filled’ letters to candidates that were unsuccessful with their application. Again, this is a gesture that shows respect for those that applied and increases the standing of your business as an employer of choice.

The recruiting process has leveled out considerably in recent years. We believe our Job Ad Feed takes things even further. Smaller businesses are now able to punch well above their weight with time saving tools that provide greater reach and larger employers have the ability to put greater personality into their recruiting process.

For more information on our Job Ad Feed or our ability to notify unsuccessful candidates on your behalf, please don’t hesitate to be in touch.

Regards,

Dennis Hosking,

Insurance and Recognition for Industry Professionals via FITREC : 25 Apr 2015


At HealthyPeople we’re focused on providing the best possible employment and recruitment services for industry professionals.

To this end, we've created a new FITREC recognition and insurance program. 

Among the services provided via FITREC are…

INSURANCE FOR INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS

This is an increasing requirement among Personal Trainers. More and more facilities are operating with a rental / contract model and therefore require Trainers that have their own insurance. There are already a variety of places that professionals can secure insurance beyond governing bodies and so it was no great leap for us to provide the same service (albeit with a whopping $20M Public Liability - Suitable for any council parkland).

FITREC RECOGNITION

Did you know that employers spend, on average, as little as six seconds scanning each CV. If what they’re looking for is not present, they’ll move on to the next one. With a FITREC badge you can grab the employers attention immediately. It represents, after all, a respected third party endorsement.

RECOGNITION OF ALL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES

As our program is employment focused, we’re approaching course recognition from a different angle - from the perspective of ‘value to an employer’. In addition, instead of allocating CEC or PDP style recognition, courses will be assigned a level of A, B, or C - where (loosely) LEVEL A represents significant learning and assessment, LEVEL B consolidates existing skills/knowledge and LEVEL C represents less formal professional development opportunities. Registration will require one LEVEL A or two LEVEL B within a 12 month period.

DIFFERENTIATION

With close to 65,000 professionals in our system, hundreds of which are applying for jobs and promoting themselves to employers every day, it can be hard to be heard above the noise. A key benefit of our FITREC program is the ability to position yourself as a professional that is committed to industry development.

CV TUNE UP

Applying for jobs is not intuitive. We’ve seen too many great candidates hide the details that matter among irrelevant information. If you want to increase your chance of getting the job you want, get some professional help - A CV tune up is part of our FITREC program.

UNLIMITED PROMOTION TO EMPLOYERS

Applying for jobs is not the only way to get ahead. Many employers are regularly connecting with professionals that we are promoting BEFORE they decide to advertise a job (if they ever do). As a FITREC candidate, you’ll be promoted to employers whenever required. You can set this up yourself or simply email a request for us to activate it on your behalf.

If you have a desire to see your time, professional development and referrals in industry recognised, if you want your passion and commitment recognised, then FITREC is for you.

If you’re already registered with HealthyPeople and want to include FITREC recognition, you can do so  via your ‘Update Registration’ page.

If you’re not already registered with HealthyPeople, you can join our community here.

I look forward to being of assistance. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please include them in the comments.
