What to Expect During Launch Camp
When new franchise partners join the AtWork family, they quickly realize that there’s a lot to get done, and a lot to learn, before they open their staffing franchise. The wheels begin to move very quickly as the new owner goes through the process of learning about the AtWork system, the staffing industry, and how to run a successful business. It is for this reason that AtWork’s corporate training team has designed a unique, two-part training program consisting of not just a traditional week of training at the corporate office, but also Launch Camp: the first step in learning how to be a successful owner.
Launch Camp is a two-day session jam-packed with information to help new franchisees gain an understanding of their business and what steps they will need to begin taking to ensure their success. Materials covered include:
Industry: Franchisees are introduced to the staffing industry as well as AtWork’s differentiators and selling points, building the base of knowledge necessary for success.
Budgeting: Budgeting for the business is covered from every angle, giving franchisees an early understanding of what it will take to keep their business running smoothly.
Sales: AtWork’s corporate team helps franchisees to determine what success looks like in addition to laying the groundwork for informed sales forecasting and goal setting.
Market and Competitor Analysis: AtWork’s corporate operations team helps new franchisees get to know their market and the major competition they’ll face once open, ensuring franchisees are well prepared from day one.
Internal Systems and Vendors: A thorough understanding of AtWork’s major systems and vendor network is essential for franchisee success. During Launch Camp, owners are not only educated on major internal systems, but they are also introduced to AtWork’s vast vendor network.
Pre-Opening and Ongoing Marketing: Sustained promotion is key to the long-term success of the franchise location. To help franchisees, AtWork’s corporate marketing department begins a number of pre-opening projects designed to get the owner off to a great start. Additionally, ongoing marketing considerations are discussed during Launch Camp, paving the way for future efforts.
Risk Management and Cost Containment: In staffing, risk management is key. During Launch Camp, AtWork’s operations team works to ensure that owners have a thorough understanding of managing risk, worksite safety, worker’s comp claims and more, in addition to an understanding of the credit approval process, collections, and credit insurance.
Launch Camp is a valuable part of the AtWork training process, helping new franchisees get off to the strongest possible start. If you’d like to further explore the AtWork opportunity, click HERE or call 888-553-1745 today!
