November 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - AtWork Group, a rapidly growing national staffing franchise, was listed by Franchise Business Review as a Top 100 Franchise for Veterans.
For this report, Franchise Business Review surveyed approximately 25,000 veteran franchise owners representing over 250 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others. AtWork’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
“We found that veterans make outstanding franchise owners as they are natural leaders and continue to serve their local communities every day,” said Jason Leverant, president and COO of AtWork Group. “We have great respect for our veterans, and it’s an honor for AtWork to receive this recognition as it is purely based on our veteran franchise owners’ high level of satisfaction.”
As part of its support for military veterans, AtWork offers a 20 percent discount on the initial franchise fee for veterans. AtWork also offers employment to many veterans through its nationwide franchise system of close to 100 locations.
Robert A. Donnell, the owner of both AtWork Personnel Services and AtWork Medical Services in Phoenix, is a U.S. Army veteran who has had three years active duty. In addition to being one of the most successful AtWork multi-unit franchise owners, he frequently has the opportunity to hire former military personnel because of the industries he serves.
“I’ve always felt that some of our best employees were former military personnel because of their work ethic, integrity, and leadership skills, along with their drive to be the best,” Donnell said. “Many of the men and woman that we have hired after they decided to build a career outside of the military, are looking for entry-level positions that they can grow in and showcase their distinctive attributes.”
AtWork Group is currently operating in 26 U.S. states and plans to expand its footprint to almost 200 locations within the next five years. The company offers staffing solutions to businesses in all industries, providing quality candidates for administrative, call center, customer service, accounting and light industrial positions. Flexible employment solutions are available including temporary, temp-to-hire, payrolling and full-time placements.
In addition to being listed as a Top 100 Franchise for Veterans, AtWork recently received a Franchise Times Top 200+ ranking for the fifth year in a row, Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) recognized AtWork as being one of the largest staffing companies based on revenues, as well as one of the fastest-growing staffing firms in the U.S. AtWork has also been listed on Inc.
