The Future of Recruiting is Virtual

Posted by Active Wellness Team on Nov 5, 2020 7:00:00 AM
Working remotely is on the rise. Stay ahead of the curve by knowing what technology is available and how you can adapt your recruiting process to a virtual environment. Our HR Administrator Topher Francia shares his top 3 tips to hiring fitness professionals during the pandemic. 
Work from home
  1. Filter Applicants Efficiently - Prioritize screening by targeting the most qualified candidates. The Active Hiring Team and our Managers use the Interview Scorecards built into Clear Company (ATS applicant tracking system) to rank and identify the strongest candidates. 
  2. Embrace Video Interviews with Zoom or Google Hangouts - Post COVID-19, video interviewing will continue to be increasingly common. It simplifies scheduling and cuts travel time and cost without losing valuable face-to-face connection. Make sure your hiring team has the virtual tools they need to conduct the most professional interview. 
  3. Adjust Workforce Planning to Support Work Environments - Your team is likely now providing virutal programming to members and will continue to do so in the future. When hiring Personal Trainers and Group Fitness Instructors make sure they are equipped to support training or teaching virtually to make them and your business the most successful.
