Employee of The Month

10487204_10152079812461946_5027197056409213767_nPersonal trainers, group exercises instructors, CSRs and pretty much all humans like to be recognized when they work hard and do great things! At Northwest Personal Training our Fitness & Training Director selects one of our employees to be the “Employee of The Month.” Here’s what we do:

  • Choosing the Employee of the Month is included in our yearly marketing plan and is something that our Fitness & Training Director puts in her calendar to do the last week of each month (for the next month’s Employee of the Month)
  • The Fitness & Training Director sends out an email to the entire team letting everyone know who the Employee of the Month is and why.
  • We give the Employee of The Month one of the most sought after and priceless things we have here at Northwest Personal Training….the BEST PARKING SPOT! 🙂 – it may seem like a small thing, but at our studio it is a big deal because our employee parking is pretty far away.

Keep in mind that once you start the Employee of The Month program you should continue it at least through the current year. So be committed. Also, make sure to truly pick out the star of the previous month. Who did something above and beyond? Who received great praise from a client? That way you have a specific action you can call out in the email announcement along with text on how wonderful the Employee of The Month is as a person. Finally, choose a “gift” that is sought after or appreciated at your facility. Whether that be a parking spot, a bigger locker, breakfast with the boss or a “day off pass.”

Sometimes running programs like this seems like too much work and nobody cares about them anyway, but if you do it right your trainers will love it and love working for you!

Yours in health, fitness & business,

BOPTbooklets 225x300 How to Gather Email Leads OnlineHey did you know that I wrote the ONLY complete training business  system designed to help you run a million dollar personal training business?! You can have this same business system that will help you work SMARTER and generate HUGE profits like we do here at Northwest Personal Training. The fee to purchase the Business of Personal Training System can be made up within 1 month of increased PT sales and there are NO recurring franchise or licensing fees. A comparable business system in other industries would require an initial investment of tens of thousands of dollars.
