Celebrating the Just For You Day Spa Team
“This is not a one-person job,” explains entrepreneur, public speaker, philanthropist and Top 40 under 40 recipient Jess Tetu. She is the sole owner of four Just For You Day Spas in Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as the founder and CEO of the beauty line Lia Reese Canada.
These days, Jess is thrilled to celebrate the 128 members of her team, particularly after their recent journey to the Daytime Emmy Awards. Her team’s commitment to hard work and customer service have made Just For You Day Spas, its aestheticians and its massage therapists, consistently number one in the province year after year.
“I believe that working at one of our spas is a career and not just a job. In this industry, the work is physically demanding, and most people do their position until their bodies quit. As an alternative, Just For You has created Senior Therapist positions for those employees who show leadership skills and excel in their department. I choose each Senior Therapist directly; across the organization, there are now 12. We want to change how jobs in the spa industry are viewed,” says Jess.
2019 has brought a slew of awards for Jess and her team. These include the Woman of Achievement Award from the Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan (WESK) Celebration of Achievement Awards; the Communications & Leadership Award from Toastmasters Canada; and the Community Builder Award from the North Saskatoon Business Association (NSBA) Business Builder Awards.
“The big one for me was the WESK Woman of Achievement Award. The evening was a chance to recognize and appreciate my team, and our collective commitment to our community. It was really our award,” says Jess.
Finally, when asked about further expansions to her business, Jess smiles coyly. “Likely” is all she’ll say.
