7 Ways FITREC is Working for Fitness Employers.

Fitness businesses rise on the strength of their teams. So it makes sense that an industry registration service should do as much as possible to help with the recruitment and retention of staff.

Here are eight ways that FITREC is working for fitness employers…

1. Easily Identify Leading Talent

FITREC profiles show employers everything they need in on one page – A candidate’s work history, all relevant education, references, related achievements, coaches/mentors, images, videos, and personal summary.

2. Access to Certificates in One Place

Whether it’s for insurance, First Aid, CPR or Qualifications, FITREC profiles include copies of all relevant documentation – easily accessible from any device. A considerable time saver.

3. A Rating that All Professionals Can be Measured Against

The ‘FITREC Rating’ is the industry’s first genuine bench-marking tool. ALL FITREC professionals are given a dynamic score out of 300 that takes into account their education, their industry experience and the references they have received. Both the education score and the reference score depreciate over time.

4. A Tool for Introducing Trainers to Clients

A Trainer’s FITREC profile can be viewed on any mobile device making it an easy thing to bring up while giving a tour of your facility. Individual profiles give the client something to view and share easily.

Some businesses have Trainer information visible on their website. The benefit FITREC provides is that it’s more easily updated with recent achievements and references and also provides valuable third-party verification.

5. Encourage Registration Without Onerous Costs

We all believe in the value of registration but legally it cannot be forced as per the Fair Work Act – check out our Open Letter to Recruitment Managers. To combat this, FITREC has streamlined the registration process and reduced the cost to the professional.

Another considerable expense for professionals is the accumulation of learning points (eg. CEC/PDP). FITREC has dropped points accumulation in favour of full transparency on professional profiles. This system also encourages professionals to pursue the learning that most interests them without concern for points.

6. A Growing FITREC Profile Improves Longevity in the Role

As professionals see their career progress and their profile expand, they’ll feel more invested in their work, providing encouragement to continue and ultimately reducing the risk of them leaving.

All employers have the ability to nurture this sense of accomplishment – FITREC profiles include a social share link for Facebook and LinkedIn. When employers use these share links to welcome staff, celebrate achievements or acknowledge new qualifications, they’re showing that they value their staff, which leads to increased loyalty and reduced turnover (and will also attract new talent).

7. Like Attracts Like

If you want to attract more professionals like your leading performers, FITREC provides the means by which you can showcase and celebrate your team. Using PROUDLY FITREC profiles, you can showcase all FITREC team members and link to their profiles. You can also include a range of other information and media to best represent your employment opportunities to new candidates.
