Ongoing Training Paves the Way for Franchisee Success
It’s a common myth that, in order to succeed with your staffing franchise, you must have staffing experience. While many AtWork franchise owners are indeed career staffing pros, a majority actually came from a variety of other industries including cellular, IT, and more, making the franchisee training program one of the most important elements of the startup process.
AtWork’s training begins as soon as a franchisee joins the system and is designed to teach someone with no knowledge of the staffing industry how to successfully launch and operate their AtWork office. The first step, known as Launch Camp, is a two-day training session in which the franchise owner spends time meeting with each of the members of the corporate support team who will not only help them through the startup process, but also guide them on an ongoing basis in areas such as insurance, sales and recruiting, marketing, and general business consulting. This critical step allows the new owner time to get a high-level overview of what operating a staffing firm entails, but it’s only the tip of the training iceberg.
The next step in the training process is a week-long training session for franchise owners and their team members at the AtWork corporate headquarters. Each day of the week is packed with critical knowledge and real-world applications that teach franchisees about every aspect of operating their business, from landing their first client, to placing workers, billing, insurance, ongoing marketing, and much more. The week culminates in team members performing live calls, getting their first taste of what the staffing industry is all about!
Training doesn’t stop there. After the official training week is complete, franchise owners can expect regularly scheduled calls and on-site visits from an assigned Field Operations expert, who will provide ongoing training and guidance as the business begins to grow and flourish. Additionally, the AtWork corporate team provides a comprehensive knowledge library covering a wide variety of topics including marketing best practices, propriety software training and much more.
AtWork’s comprehensive training program ensures that no franchisee, despite industry-specific experience, will be left without the proper tools and training to succeed. If you’re interested in learning more, click HERE or call 888-553-1745 today!
