February 17, 2016 // Franchising.com // KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – @Work Group, a cutting edge, award-winning national staffing franchise, has announced it has trademarked the “Secure 7” Guarantee on direct hire placements to protect clients’ human capital investment. This partnership guarantee commits @Work Group to filling a position with a qualified candidate for seven years.
“According to the American Staffing Association, the staffing industry growth has vastly outpaced overall economic and employment growth. We strive to avoid the stereotypical ‘churn and burn’ associated with the staffing industry,” said Jason Leverant, president and COO of @Work Group. “With this new guarantee, we want to cement our pledge to our clients and personnel to ensure the reliability they each seek. For companies, this secures their human capital investment long-term. For personnel, this grants flexibility and growth opportunities.”
The Secure 7 Guarantee safeguards the human capital investment of @Work Group’s clients with its newly structured direct placement contract. Clients are guaranteed a full refund within 30 days, and a free replacement candidate within 90 days of the initial placement. During the seven-year period of the direct hire contract, @Work will provide equally qualified candidates to fill the same position at half the original fee should there be any turnover.
This concept was pioneered by staffing veteran and Southern California @Work franchise owner Gregg Hassler, launching it in Temecula and expanding the concept into Palm Desert. The long-term guarantee on a replacement adds value by eliminating the fear of an expensive replacement candidate. Should the case of employee separation arise, @Work Group and its franchise locations across the nation will now present similarly qualified replacement candidates to fulfill the original contracted position.
“When we began marketing this concept in Southern California, it really took off with local businesses,” said Hassler. “Through the success at our Temecula location, we were able to expand shortly after into Palm Desert. Our success is defined by the successes of each candidate we place and by the human capital ROI of our clients. The Secure 7 Guarantee is just one of the methods we employ to show our commitment to prosperous hiring solutions.”
@Work provides companies with flexible employment solutions with the highest level of service available and was recently named No. 349 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2015 “Franchise 500” List, as well as an Inavero’s 2016 Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Award winners list. @Work Group’s list of accolades also includes: Workforce Magazine’s Temporary Staffing Providers Hot List for 2013, the Staffing Industry Analysts Largest U.S. Staffing Firms List for 2013, the Franchise Times’ Next 300 Franchise Systems, and a 2015 Inc. 5000 ranking.
