Why CrossFit gym owners should always be sourcing resumes

June 1, 2022 by

When it comes to maintaining a great coaching staff, many gym/business owners make the mistake of only hiring when there is a position that needs to be filled. This common mistake keeps both established and new gym owners struggling to fill a position in a timely manner. By always sourcing resumes, you have access to a pool of talented individuals who may be a perfect fit for your company! In this article, we will discuss the benefits of sourcing resumes and why the most successful gym owners are always recruiting new talent.

Always searching for resumes offer a number of benefits to a fitness business owner, including:

- Access to the perfect talent poo of qualified candidates: When you are a fitness business owner that is always sourcing resumes, you have access to a larger pool of talented individuals. This allows you to find the perfect candidate for your company exactly when you need one! If you are a gym owner, your coaches are what keeps your business and everything running. If you unexpectidly lose a coach, you will need to find a qualified candidate to fill that position as quickly as possible, or you as the owner will be spending more hours on the floor and taking care of other duties other than hiring a coach. If you are always sourcing potential hires, when the time comes you need to unexpectedly fill a position, you can go to your account and start contacting coaches who have already expressed interest in serving your fitness community. Do you want to be the business owner that has to stress filling a position, or the business owner who has a full pre-qualified talent pool of people who want to be a part of your business? It is an easy decision for the smart business owner.

- Cost-effective: sourcing resumes is more cost-effective than traditional recruiting methods. This is because you are not spending money on advertising or other recruiting costs. A free posting on Gym Jobs will bring you a steady stream of pre-qualified candidates who are ready to be an added value to your business. If you wait until the need for a new hire is immediate, the cost and time required will be a much greater liability both financially for your business and your own time.

- Time-saving: sourcing resumes can save you a lot of time! By sourcing resumes, you can quickly find candidates that meet your specific criteria. This can save you hours of time that would otherwise be spent screening candidates. Simply taking 5 minutes of your time to place your free job posting on has saved you days, weeks, or maybe longer trying to find the perfect coach because they have already shown interest in being a part of your time.

If you are not sourcing resumes, you are missing out on a number of benefits! By sourcing resumes, you can find the perfect candidate for your company in a timely and cost-effective manner. So what are you waiting for? Start sourcing resumes today by posting your free job post on Gym Jobs.
