Thursday, April 14, 2022
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (CST) 

In this 60 minute session hosted by NIHCA with Karen Woodard, we will examine the range of how businesses Orient and/or On-board their new hires. You will have a model to provide what your new hire needs to know to go from Nervous Newbie to a Performing Professional. We will discuss clarity of expectations, how to live the Core Values of your organization, how to achieve the strategic initiatives in your organization, training your new staff on effective communication skills that reflect professionalism and your organization's culture as well as how to make every staff person, new
or veteran, aware of their opportunities within your organization.

TWO WINNERS of the March 2022
Spotlight Contest

When things are good, things are very good. In our March Spotlight contest we asked our clubs to send us a video giving a tour of their facility and highlight what has changed. Change is important for growth and we loved seeing the entries! Thank you to everyone who sent entries into the March contest. We tried to narrow down the entries to one winner but for the first time in our contest history, we could not choose one winner.

Please help us in congratulating our March 2022 Spotlight Winners:


These facilities took the time to give us an awesome tour of their facilities and highlighted the changes made at their facilities.

Osceola Regional Health Center took the restrictions from COVID to reimagine their space. They demolished a non-working pool to make it usable space for their Wellness Center and they creatively created a division for their Wellness Members and their Therapy Members to comply with COVID restrictions.

Carlton Wellness Center prides themselves on being “a small town gym, with big goals”. They have recently created a gathering center for classes, social events and training sessions AND they now have massage therapy and nutritional health coaching for their members!
