Life AFTER Esthetics training

What happens after you complete your esthetics training?

Executive Spa Group provides all students with career and employment resources to guide them in their beauty industry careers.

Starting your first job after beauty school can be daunting. You may find that your spa job may be different than what you were expecting. At Executive Spa Group, our Beauty Career and Employment consultants have knowledge and experience to help you align reality with expectations.

Some information we like to prepare our students with is knowledge in employment laws so that you understand your rights and responsibilities as an employee.

Reading and keeping your pay stub is a good habit. Your pay stub provides important information including your EI and CPP contributions. It’s always a good idea to track your hours so that you can read your pay stub.

Reading your pay stub can be pretty confusing, especially when it comes to all of those deductions. 

Employers must deduct on your behalf from YOUR OWN wages the following:

1. Employment Insurance aka “EI”

Like it’s name says, this is insurance you pay every pay cheque in case you are laid off or become ill, or your parents or child become ill, or you have a child and can no longer work.

***NOTE: you do not qualify for EI if you are fired or quit your job.

2. Canada Pension Plan aka “CPP”

This is money that your employer must pay on your behalf from YOUR OWN wages. This money goes into a “savings account” and you only have access to it when you turn 65 years old. If you choose to retire early you may in fact access your CPP, however, you will be penalized by receiving a lesser amount than if you would have waited.

3. Taxes- this money is deducted from YOUR OWN wages to pay towards making Canada the great country we know and love. It goes to pay for all sorts of things, like our education and healthcare system, fixing our roads, providing social programs, etc.

The amount of taxes you pay depends on your marital status and whether or not you have children. 

Though all of the deductions can be infuriating when you receive your pay cheque, just think, on top of paying all those deductions, YOUR EMPLOYER must also pay additional EI and CPP out of their own pockets to be able to offer you a job. 

In addition to paying your wages, your employer has to match the amount of CPP you pay, dollar for dollar, plus an additional 1.4X the amount you pay for EI. 😱

Makes one appreciate their employer just a little more, doesn’t it?

WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A MENTOR

What does it mean to be a mentor?

It’s that time again! Executive Spa Group is looking for employers to mentor our Beautiful Futures participants. If you haven’t heard of this program, Beautiful Futures is a government funded program that trains youth for a start in a beauty industry career.

The Beautiful Futures program has a heavy emphasis on soft skills designed to teach young people life and employment skills to make them successful all around. Because our program is designed for millenials, we try and fill the gaps employers face when working with this generation.

Responsibility and respect for the workplace are core values at Executive Spa Group. We try to foster a sense of pride and work ethic in our participants. We model other values such as accountability and teamwork in hopes that our participants follow our example.

Beautiful Futures participants spend 8 weeks in class learning one technical skill plus an array of employability skills such as conflict management and communication, customer service, change management, personal development, time and money management, etc.

After completing their class time at Executive Spa Group, they spend 12 weeks with an employer where they practice their newly learned skills. Eligible employers receive a wage subsidy of $6/hr. We normally place the participants in entry-level jobs. Examples of past placements include jobs doing:
  • Salon/spa reception
  • Salon/spa assistant
  • Hair apprentice
  • Sales Representative
  • Nail technician

What do I need to become a mentor?

Aside from meeting the requirements set forth by the Government of Canada, employers need to have the desire to make a difference in a young person’s life. The following are what we believe to be characteristics of a mentor.

Clear Communication

To be a successful mentor, you must be able to clearly communicate your expectations to your participant, and also be open to hearing your participant’s communication. Open communication in a safe space is the key to any relationship- your relationship with your new team member is no different.

Because of the nature of our industry, we may have jam-packed days when we don’t even have time to eat, or we may have days that we have no clients. Remember, young employees may not have the same sense of work ethic as you, therefore they may need your guidance in thinking of duties to fill their day. We find that providing your participant with written daily duties is a good way to start.

Examples of entry level duties include:
  • washing/folding/putting away laundry
  • cleaning duties (ex. washroom upkeep/floors/dusting…)
  • replenishing supplies/ restocking merchandise
  • followup calls/appointment reminders/filing client forms/booking appointments/greeting customers
  • assisting other staff members (ex. room prep/washing and disinfecting tools and implements)

Provide Feedback

Whether your participant is doing a good job or not, feedback is important for the growth of your new team member. During the first two weeks, we recommend you review your participant’s work to ensure they have completed their tasks well and up to your standards. Take the time to inconspicuously observe your participant and provide feedback when needed, as soon as possible. If correction is needed, always correct your participant in private.

Ability to Motivate and Lead

They say that to have a successful business, you must keep your staff happy. We couldn’t agree more. To be a successful mentor, you must lead by example with your positive attitude. There is no better way to teach young people then by leading by example. Let them hear your positive interactions with your clients so that they have a clear understanding of your level of customer service. Your new participant will adopt your way of treating clients and the other members of the team.

Create and Follow a Progress Plan

For the ultimate satisfaction with your new team member, it is important that you take the time to get to know your new employee. A progress plan can help you outline your mutual goals and set a timeline for achieving those goals.

For example, a progress plan can include goals such as:
  • gaining knowledge and confidence with the professional product lines carried at your salon/spa within the first month. This can be further broken down into week 1- cleansers, week 2- moisturizers, etc.
  • becoming independent with assigned regular duties within first 2 weeks of joining the team
  • learn skills required to accept payments by week 3
  • training on a new service after proven ability to complete initial skill in a professional and timely manner. For example, “after completing 30 pedicures and 30 manicures succesfully, you will be trained on waxing”
These are only examples of items in a progress plan. Your plan will be as unique as you and your business. Making the time to meet briefly with your new employee every 2 weeks in the beginning will help to keep your new employee motivated which in turn will keep you satisfied.

Creating a progress plan will also help you uncover other skills in your participant. For example, we have had participants with nursing, accounting, marketing, and teaching skills. Beautiful Futures has seen a variety of newcomers who change their professions for a beauty career when they start their new life in Canada. In the past we have had the opportunity to train nurses, teachers, doctors, accountants, I.T. professionals, media broadcasters, etc, in their new beauty career. Get to know your participant- they may hold some valuable skills!

Asserting your Authority

To be a successful mentor you must be able to assert your authority. Don’t be afraid to provide clear rules from the start. Rules regarding absences and tardiness should be clear, as well as required attire and overall appearance.

If your participant does not meet your expectations from the start, as the mentor, it is your responsibility to address any miscommunication and find a solution. During the 12 weeks, Executive Spa Group is only a phone call/email/text away to help you find solutions should you need us.

Remember, we previously spent 8 weeks with your new team member which means we were able to observe and track their strengths and areas for improvement. It also means we were able to build rapport with them which may allow us to mediate if needed.

Beauty Industry Youth Employment Program

EXECUTIVE SPA GROUP BEAUTY INDUSTRY CAREERS

PROGRAM COMMITMENT: JANUARY 28-JUNE 14, 2019

Beautiful Futures has 2 components:

In-class (8 weeks)

M-F; 10am-4:30pm
JAN 28- MAR 22, 2019

You will acquire fundamental skills required for any job regardless of industry. However, our goal is to help you gain personal development, life and employment skills, and transferrable skills to take you anywhere you want to go in the beauty industry.

You will participate in Skill Enhancement on Fridays. Exposure Certification in Manicures and Pedicures will be awarded upon successful completion of your work experience, training quotas, and passing marks on required exams.

Placement (12 weeks)

35 hours minimum/week
MARCH 25- JUNE 14, 2019

During this 2nd portion, you will gain skills and work experience in entry-level beauty industry-related or retail jobs. Work experience can be completed at different salons, spas, medispas, health and wellness centres, and retail outlets throughout the city.

ESG does not guarantee placement in the beauty industry. Beauty industry job placements are awarded to participants that show readiness, ability, and willingness to work. ESG assesses your suitability for different types of employment throughout the classroom component.
NOTE: Participants must accept the placement assigned to them and must make themselves available for work for a minimum of 35 hours per week. Completion of the Work Experience component of this course is mandatory for certification in the technical training received.

Is funding provided for this program?

Yes, funding is provided by the Government of Canada to help cover the cost of basic living expenses while obtaining employment training. Financial assistance is provided to participants throughout the classroom component on an hourly wage at Alberta’s minimum wage.

The placement component is a paid work experience. You earn a wage while completing this portion. In some scenarios, the possibility exists to turn the work experience into a permanent position, so make sure to impress your employer! Days of the week will vary amongst employers, but remember, weekends are busy days for the beauty industry, so be prepared to commit!

NOTE: Do not apply if you are not prepared to work weekends! The Beauty industry thrives on the weekend and weekend work is expected of an entry-level employee.

Important note about this program

Because a wage is provided for attending this program and receiving skills training, participants are encouraged to think of the program as work. While this program is intended to help you develop personally and professionally, we have set standards of attendance and performance. Just as with any employer, we adhere to a probationary period and reserve the right to terminate your enrolment in the program if expectations are not met.
