Staffing & Personnel Franchises

Looking for staffing and personnel franchises? We discuss a few things to consider before buying staffing and personnel franchises. We've also highlighted a few staffing and personnel franchises that we think are worth looking at.

More and more entrepreneurs are discovering that the staffing and personnel industry is big business.

Every business owner knows that hiring the right employees can make the difference between profitability and disaster in small business. But finding those employees can be a challenge. A successful employee search requires time, energy, and more than a little expertise to attract and narrow down the list of potential applicants.

That's where staffing and personnel businesses earn their money. These companies help small businesses find qualified employees to fill their open positions. Many offer a full range of staffing services including temporary placement, evaluation, and professional searches. As with other industries, franchising has allowed some staffing and personnel companies to expand their operation and offer their business model to franchisees.

Snelling Personnel Services has been in the staffing and personnel business for more than fifty years. In 1951, Lou and Gwen Snelling opened their first personnel office with a mission to "help others achieve the success they desire." Over the years, the company has grown considerably and now offers franchisees opportunities to share in their success. Today, Snelling is one of the nation's largest staffing firms with over 60,000 field employees in 43 states.

Staffing and personnel is a growing industry. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that by 2008, American companies will need to an additional 55 million jobs, and many of those companies will look to staffing and personnel franchises for assistance. If a franchise in the staffing and personnel industry sounds like it might be right for you, take some time to research the possibilities before taking the next step.

Points to Consider

  • Staffing and personnel is a "people-person" industry. If you have an outgoing personality and enjoy talking to people from a variety of backgrounds, this may be just the franchising opportunity you have been looking for.
  • There are many different kinds of staffing and personnel franchises. Some franchises specialize in providing temporary employees to their clients. If your franchise offers temp services, be aware that there may be additional requirements such as providing payroll services for your temps.
