Welcome to the Franchise Employer Report!
Looking for quality employees? Who isn’t? After more than 2 years of accelerated changes and adaptations brought on by Covid, today’s labor market has altered drastically, with employers of all stripes facing unfamiliar conditions and seeking innovative solutions.
One of those changes, of course, is today’s labor shortage and related employment and staffing challenges. Compounded by the growing number of people shifting careers, working from home, demanding more pay and benefits, unionizing, and even demanding an ownership stake, franchisees and franchisors are scrambling to adjust to this new reality. Employers at every level and in every industry are coping in every way they can, willing to try something – anything! – that will help them attract, train, and retain quality employees.
That’s why we’re introducing this monthly newsletter – the Franchise Employer Report, or FER – to report on what’s working and what isn’t, mining the field for the best advice and real-life stories from the front lines. Everyone needs employees, the best they can find, at a cost they can afford in a highly competitive market.
We’re also introducing two other monthly newsletters: one that will focus on the changing real estate market, and one that will focus on today’s customer experience – what consumers want, how they want it, and when. (See how to subscribe at the end of this article.)
The content of this newsletter in the coming months will build on our goal of delivering “news you can use” to grow and improve your business, whether you’re a franchisee or franchisor. We’ll be bringing you relevant content on recruitment and retention strategies and tactics, updates on employment-related technologies, legal issues, case studies, and interviews with franchisees, franchisors, and experts in the areas most important to you, your growth, and your profitability.
Check us out – tell your friends – be the first on your block! – to take advantage of what we hope will be a new and valuable resource for you, as well as for your employees. See you next month, and every first Thursday going forward!
