A thriving hourly workforce is a competitive advantage. Today, every franchise struggles to hire enough people to maintain operations; resulting in lost revenue, dissatisfied customers, and overworked staff. Without evolving how to attract and hire new people, things will only worsen, with many businesses reducing hours or closing locations, and franchise royalties will ultimately suffer.
Franchise brands need to care about the staffing level of their franchisees because the staff’s quality directly impacts the franchise’s success as a whole: The quality of service by franchisees directly impacts the franchisor’s reputation. Therefore, it is in the franchisor’s best interest to ensure that the franchisee’s staff adequately with competent and qualified employees.
Additionally, franchise brands may have certain staffing requirements outlined in their franchise agreements, which franchisees must comply with to maintain their franchise status. Failure to meet these requirements often results in penalties or even termination of the franchise agreement. Therefore, franchise brands closely monitor the staffing levels of their franchisees to ensure that they meet these requirements and provide a quality experience for customers. Why not put in place efficient, low-cost mechanisms to support this?
