AB Reader Perspective: What aspect of your job would you pay to outsource?

AB November | December 2016 reader perspective

Karen Nixon-CarrollKaren Nixon-Carroll

Karen Nixon-Carroll
fitness program manager, Fanshawe College, London, Ont.

"Collecting and reporting stats on all of our programs: group exercise participation, specialty programs and events, personal training, hourly usage of the fitness center, social media analytics, fitness center orientations and assessments. I love knowing the end result, but getting there sometimes takes away from my real passion of delivering the program."

athletic director, McCluer North High School, Florissant, Mo.

"Assigning of officials. It removes the appearance of impropriety and any home-field advantage. This is not a perfect fix, as many spectators still think officials are pro home team."

"My goal is to have an athletic trainer for all athletic events and implement new concussion research into diagnosis, treatment and return-to-play protocols. There is the need for athletic trainers to be hired for all athletic events to ensure the participants receive the proper treatment and diagnosis for injuries, especially concerning concussions."

"Data entry! Schedules, paperwork dates, transportation, school and state calendaring systems. Most of it is repetitive data entry of the same things."

president/owner, Fencing Academy of Philadelphia

"Bookkeeping. I use Quickbooks, which is good, but aspects of keeping the records correctly still elude me and it is impossible to find someone. I have an accountant, but they do not do bookkeeping."
