National Staffing Franchise Looks to Tap Chattanooga Applicant Pool
AtWork Group, one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing staffing franchises, is continuing to fill the need for quality job applicants in Tennessee by identifying Chattanooga as the company’s next development hub. AtWork recognizes synergy with many of its core applicants and Chattanooga’s key concentration of top area businesses such as Erlanger Health System, Tennessee Valley Authority, Volkswagen of America, Unum and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
With locations across 27 states, AtWork is planning to grow its footprint to more than 300 units over the next 10 years. Strategic expansion in Chattanooga is a key component of the company’s efforts to provide quality temporary, temp-to-hire and direct-hire services to companies across a variety of industries. AtWork is excited to expand into a city that is home to an impressive year-over-year growth in temp employment, reaching 10 percent in 2017. This is especially opportunistic for potential franchisees, as the community sustains a heavy economic concentration in industrial, healthcare and technology.
“As a Tennessee-based company, AtWork knows very well how important Chattanooga is to the state’s economy,” said AtWork President and COO Jason Leverant. “With several major corporate headquarters in the area, the need for quality staffing solutions has only increased. Chattanooga is a well-diversified employment and manufacturing base for us to help local business grow and strengthen the community.”
AtWork facilitated 50,000 hires in 2018 through three distinct service lines: AtWork Personnel – which focuses on administrative and light industrial jobs, AtWork Medical – which specializes in medical, home health care and senior care professionals, and AtWork Search – an executive recruitment service that specializes in management-level professionals across a variety of industries. Always striving to be “AtWork for You,” the staffing franchise differentiates itself with focus on service and local ownership. Franchisees are empowered to make decisions at a local level, working with clients to strengthen their community’s economy.
An initial investment for AtWork ranges from $154,000 to $231,000. Franchisees can expect to receive access to personalized technology and ongoing training and support as well as exclusive territories with populations of 250,000 or less.
