NHE Recruitment Process - Job Type 'IC 1099'
The recruitment process for job type 'employee', differs from the recruitment process for job type 'IC 1099'. Job Type Candidates for employment are valued in relation to a recruitment based data structure and algorithm score (learn more). The composition of which includes an individual’s resume/CV, social media presence, criminal record and various other public background data sources. Although the minimum score acceptance level is the sole discretion of each individual employer, in which the average for the health industry is 75, NHE requires a minimum score of 80 for employment consideration purposes. On occasion, candidates possessing favorable scores have proven to be under-qualified for any NHE opening, therefore, additional vetting is required. Furthermore, in recognition of the doctrine of negligent hiring and other case law, NHE extends its recruitment protocol beyond the industry standard. Each recruitment requirement is articulated below.
How open positions are assigned:
1) Each position has a hiring quota, posted to the job description page. Candidates are processed in real time and receive a hiring decision within one business day upon completion of the qualification vetting process. Once the hiring quota has been achieved, the position is closed.
2) We incorporate our master trainer certification exam into our vetting protocol. The NHE Master Trainer Certification exam is designed to distinguish wellness professionals who have achieved a professional level of fitness and/or nutrition expertise. Modified for recruitment vetting, this exam has proven to be an exceptional means of assessing the knowledge levels of all job candidates. As such, it is utilized in lieu of a traditional interview. Additionally, exam results are marketed and become part of NHE's service packaging. The exam is administered and processed at no cost.
3) Hiring Decision: Candidate must achieve the minimum score required of the position (MTC exam) and provide one non-familial reference or verifiable document for each component of his/her expertise (ACA/PRO Vetting).
There are viability protocols associated with each job title, in addition to the recruitment process.
NHE Recruitment Process Stages
Stage 1) Master Trainer Certification Exam (MTC)
Required of service providers (PhD exempt. Sales Managers exempt). No exam fees or travel requirements. Administered online. Once the MTC exam has been processed, an email containing the processing results will be sent. If a satisfactory score has been achieved, the candidate is allotted 10 (ten) business days to reply by email to inform HR of his/her desire to accept the assigned job title. Job title assignments are predetermined based on expertise. Attached to the email reply, must be all supporting documentation, if applicable (e.g. copy of degree, certificate, client reference). Once the reply email and accompanied documentation is received by HR, processing will be completed within 1 (one) business day. Providing both the candidate's MTC exam score and expertise satisfy the requirements of the position, and the position remains 'open' on the career board, the position is offered to the candidate and assigned to the candidate's TOA Page*.
The long standing NHE policy of no employment consideration for those submitting an exam retake has been revised. Effective June 2018, the free MTC exam retake option which accompanies all NHE study guides will be considered for employment purposes.
Stage 2) Final Tier Consultation (FTC)
Upon satisfying the minimum MTC score requirement, an FTC must be scheduled. This new hire requirement consists of a person-to-person meeting (30-45 mins, video conference) involving all pre-hire procedures, affiliate location approval/allocation (if applicable), protocols and/or logistical confirmation(s). Additionally, all job viabilities are confirmed at this time (i.e. work schedule, workload commitment, compensation protocols and job commencement date).
Stage 3) HR Finalization (New Hire)
Providing there are no issues relating to the candidate’s comprehension with his/her job responsibilities or compensation, an official NHE job offer is made at the conclusion of the FTC. The job offer is confirmed and posted to the new hire's TOA Page. A job offer letter (PDF) and NHE approved BIA (biennial agreement) is linked to the new hire’s TOA page for review and approval. Once the BIA agreement has been signed and received by NHE (via fax or email attachment), the new hire's TOA page converts to his/her NHE Representative Page. Contained therein, are all job related protocols and current workload assignments. There is no training program. However, there is a task tutorial for each job responsibility.
* An NHE HR File Page is a password protected, recruitment status webpage created for all qualified service provider job candidates. The password is the the first three digits of the candidate's mobile phone number. A TOA page (terms of agreement) is a new hire recruitment confirmation page. Contained therein, will be all job specifics and conditions.
