Find Local Labour Owner Rory Perron Tips to Encourage Millenials


Adults, parents, and society have a way of passing on a somewhat cynical attitude to the next generation.  When kids hear the low probability of becoming a professional athlete often enough, they adjust their attitude and goals downward accordingly.  How many times have you heard how bad the Millennial generation is? They hear it too and start adjusting their lives accordingly.  I recently heard about a Millennial that had already given up on ever buying a house because he felt he had no chance as a Millennial.  Many Millennials are giving up on life itself...  Are we contributing to a suicide problem by constantly trash talking Millennials? Perhaps it is time to start encouraging them instead of bashing them?

How Do We Encourage Millenials? 


Here are some thoughts from owner Rory Perron himself.

1. I generally keep my personal life to myself but I have a general desire to help people. So, if I can help some people by sharing some of my personal experience, I guess I will share. Last month, at 49 years old, I completed my first sprint distance triathlon. I am proud of myself because I achieved a goal that I had set for myself. (I am not looking for kudos from anyone, #SaskHumble.) Our next generation also needs to be proud of themselves. That's what makes them take pride in their work, makes them productive citizens, helps them feel good about life, and gives them a sense of purpose = positive mental health. Goals are the starting point. 

Here is a peek at some of Rory Perron's goals:


Fitness Goals:


  • Complete a Triathlon Sprint distance (short distance) --> DONE!
  • Complete a Triathlon Olympic distance (medium distance) --> Currently training for it this year
  • Complete a Triathlon Iron-Man distance (long distance) --> Before he turns 60 years old

Business Goals: 

  • Build a business for 10 years and sell it --> Done (but it took 18 years.)
  • Build a business 100 times bigger in half of the time --> Working on it


I think you get the picture - Can we support the development of goals? (bigger and bigger goals? Or S-M-A-R-T goals?) He has given examples of his fitness and business goals, but goals in relationships and spirituality or fulfillment also need to be nurtured. And, it is OK to dream BIG!


    2. The recommended dosage of positive to negative commentary is five to one.  People need approximately five positive reinforcement comments for every one constructive criticism.  Let’s get on with the positive reinforcement by offering five suggestions about how to succeed in every one pitfall to watch out for.  Let's pass out five compliments before pointing out a problem.

    3. I had a "down day" a few weeks ago.  I was having a hard time motivating myself to be productive and I doubted myself about everything I was doing.  I decided to make myself an “Up List”.  It is a list that I can use/read/activate on my next down day. (It is really hard to make this list on a down day!)  Over time, I came up with a list of the positive things that I have accomplished, things that I love about myself, and things that I am proud of.  It also includes some people that I can talk to that will inevitably make me feel better.  I also received some great input from other people.  This could be a great tool or exercise for any generation.

Let's Learn More About Find Local Labour

Find Local Labour is owned and operated by Rory Perron. Rory worked for Front Line Furniture prior to launching Find Local Labour. This is where many of his great clients first met him. When Rory was at Front Line he would post a job and be overwhelmed by the sea of applicants and the time it took to weed through the masses of resumes to than find a handful of applicants to interview. He found that he still didn't know until the interview whether or not these applicants were truly qualified. This is how the concept for Find Local Labour was born! 

Find Local Labour is NOT just another generic job site, it is much more than that. The Find Local Labour recruitment website is a tool that helps employers find local entry-level job seekers with the qualifications and experience they are looking for. It is a local Trusted website that job seekers can post their resume to so they can reach these local businesses effectively!

We spoke to many of Rory's clients that have worked with him to hire employees and they were so happy with how pain-free the recruitment process was and how much simpler is it is. The feedback was consistent- Find Local Labour saved them time and money! 

There are many checks and requirements in the Trusted Saskatoon verification process, one of those includes our team calling 15-20 references and previous customer personally to conduct a survey, it is a pass or fail. Why do we do this? We want to hear about their experience with the business applying to be a Trusted Saskatoon partner. We take these extra steps to personally verify all of our applicants prior to them becoming Trusted Saskatoon Directory partners, so you don't have to. Find Local Labour has a similar system, but in their unique process they are calling the previous employees past employer references and from there Find Local Labour provides a ' reliability rating' for each candidate. This truly is an extra step that offers value that other online job sites don't offer! 

Rory is passionate about what he does and his enthusiasm and work ethic is admirable. He is the kind of guy you want to work with and you know you can trust him instinctively!  Here is what some of the people that have worked with Rory or know him personally had to say:


"I have been using Local Labour for a few months as an employer looking for employees. I found their site easy to use and their customer service has been nothing short of amazing. I have successfully recruited 3 employees from the site. On all three occasions, the employees were available immediately and I had them start working within three days. I still currently employ all three employees found on this site. The reliability rating Local Labour provides made it easy for me to pick the right candidates. I would strongly recommend using this service." Jason Lang

'Rory and his team provide top quality professional service with a personal and human touch...the last 2 qualities are sadly missing in many business relationships these days.' Paul Hastings

'Rory is a professional in every aspect. He always strives for top-level knowledge, service and support no matter what the application is. Rory comes highly recommended.' Kerry Fuchs



Over the years Rory has ensured that supporting local charities is part of his business. Some of his favourite charities he has supported over the years include Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre, Crisis Nursery, Ronald McDonald House, CNYC Core Neighbourhood Youth Coop and YMCA Strong Kids Program. Giving back to the community that he lives in is very important to Rory!

The Trusted Saskatoon team are thrilled to give Find Local Labour 'The Thumbs Up' as a Trusted Saskatoon Recruitment Service - welcome to the Trusted Saskatoon Community!

Trusted Saskatoon Tutors discuss IQ tests

Using an IQ test for kids is an attractive tool for those looking to benchmark a child’s educational progress. With clear-cut standardized scores, IQ tests make it obvious that a child with a low score would need different instruction than one with a high score. Seems helpful, right? Unfortunately it’s not quite that easy.


While these tests have been the intelligence testing standard for the past 100 years, there has been controversy in the education world as to how effective they truly are – especially for children.

Let’s get to the bottom of the debate around IQ tests for children: what’s the problem and what’s the best alternative?


DEFINING IQ TESTS


IQ tests aim to measure mental capacity using a variety of categories – including verbal skills, visual-spatial reasoning, memory and processing speed. Children who take IQ tests are provided with a number based on how they score against their age group, which signifies whether they are considered gifted, average, or at risk of learning and behavioural issues.



THE PROBLEM WITH LABELS


Research shows that labels of all types are harmful for children – and can influence future behaviour in drastic ways. Instead of focusing on learning style, IQ tests provide children with a fixed score that teachers and parents use to determine the course of their education.


MISSING THE WHOLE PICTURE


IQ tests can be a great way to analyze specific aspects of a child’s intelligence, but they ultimately fail to look at the entire picture. Examinations of intelligence should not be fixed to a one-size-fits-all mentality. They need to consider a child’s overall pattern of strengths, weaknesses, environment, and culture.



To overcome the number of issues that come with IQ testing for children, parents and teachers should consider using programs that focus on qualitative learning and overall potential, not just quantitative scores. Instead of determining what their intelligence level is based on a few fixed categories, assessments should focus on how a child learns, and what educational tools they respond best to.




A DYNAMIC ALTERNATIVE


Dynamic tests and assessments are an effective alternative to the standard IQ test for kids. They provide children with the opportunity to work in a comfortable, open environment — one that leaves room for mistakes, exploration and creativity. This gives the administrator of the evaluation the opportunity to assess the child’s needs using a more holistic approach.

Parents and teachers should also look for tests and assessments that provide more than just a final score.





All educators and parents just want to give students what they need to thrive and succeed throughout their school years. And with different personalities, experiences, and learning styles comes a need for personalized testing.

By avoiding standardized IQ tests, and instead opting for dynamic styles of assessment, each student will be given the care and attention required for them to achieve their best throughout their educational journey.


                  

Trusted Saskatoon Tutors tip on activities for your summer learner

WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE BEST FOR YOUR SUMMER LEARNER?

Whether your child loves to read, play outside, or get techy, there are many fun but effective ways to promote learning over the break. Since the summer will be here before you know it, it’s a great idea to start planning now what activities you’ll use to avoid summer learning loss. Our quick tips can help!

Ways to incorporate reading into your summer plans:

  • Take a trip to your local library
  • Bring a book with you to the park or the beach
  • Read a chapter in the morning, when your child is used to learning and before other plans cause distraction

                                     


Use these ideas to make reading an enjoyable pastime for both you and your child.

Ways to incorporate physical activity into your summer plans:

  • Sign your child up for a team sport
  • Encourage learning a new skill such as swimming
  • Go on walks and explore your city
                                     

Be sure to take advantage of all the different opportunities to get outside and get active.

Ways to incorporate educational technology into your summer plans:

  • Challenge your child to a new high score on an educational app
  • Start a tech project together – like a toy robotics kit
                                     

Teach kids through your own tasks – ie. baking a cake, or fixing a bicycle

Between 65,200 educational apps, various tech-based toys, and even just household activities, there are an endless supply of tech projects to use to encourage summer learning for your child.
