KNOXVILLE, TENN. Mar. 21, 2016 – @Work Group, an award-winning national staffing franchise, reported its sales results from 2015. The 57 percent top-line gross revenue growth to $257 million reflects the company’s continued investment in nurturing relationships with current and potential franchisee owners through new communication methods and regularly updating training techniques.
“Our system-wide initiative to enhance our operational support and development methods propelled our profitable growth,” said Jason Leverant, President and Chief Operating Officer for @Work Group. “In addition to encouraging open communication between the franchise owners and the corporate office through various channels such as the Slack messenger and FranConnect, our corporate team strives to continually support our franchise owners and help them grow within their communities. This resulted in a tremendous increase in our franchise development and we’re on a similar track for growth this year.”
@Work Group experienced a growth nearly six times the staffing industry average of ten percent year to year. Another industry standard the staffing franchise is exceeding is the talent rating from Inavero’s staffing company surveys, earning an eighty percent talent satisfaction rating compared to an average in the negatives.
“One of the key factors for @Work’s expansion can be credited to our Discovery Days,” said Cliff Harber, franchise sales manager at @Work Group. “Our close rate is roughly eighty percent, about ten percent more than industry average. Franchisee feedback states that our sales and support are the contributing factors of their business decision. We’ve created an interactive and flexible onboarding format to make starting your business more succinct and easily comprehensible for our business owners, regardless of career or background.”
