Our Recruitment Agency Business Model
We have a strong business plan and extensive operational support for franchisees
The staffing business involves a lot of moving parts. Our recruitment agency business model offers managed complexity – the ability to operate a complicated business in a streamlined, efficient way.
With our model, you’ll support clients by:
Defining your client’s objectives.
Developing a plan to achieve expectations.
Delivering results by continuous monitoring and refining strategy.
Our business model offers multiple revenue streams. Remedy franchise owners’ core offerings include temporary, direct hire and temporary-to-hire staffing services, focusing primarily on the two largest segments of the industry: light industrial/logistics and clerical/administrative. In addition, they also have access to opportunities to service EmployBridge’s national accounts in their local markets.
What you do
Your main role as a franchise owner will be to handle the people side of the business. That includes earning new clients and building lasting relationships with them; recruiting and screening associates; administering customer service to both groups; hiring and developing your internal staff; and developing your brand as a trusted resource in the business community. Sales skills, networking and adaptability are key traits for successful franchisees.
“People buy from people. When you take a look at our franchise owners, they are best in class,” says EmployBridge CEO Tom Bickes. “These are folks that are actively involved in their community, they care about their business, they care about their staff and they care about the clients and associates they’re serving. If you can ultimately stay true to your values, you have a great culture, and if you have a great culture, you’ll attract talent, you’ll attract clients and you’ll attract sustainable business.”
What we do
Since your job as a franchise owner will be primarily centered around customer service and growing the business, Remedy has support for just about everything you’ll need on the operational end. That provides a huge advantage to joining our brand versus trying to figure out your own staffing agency business plan.
“When you connect up with Remedy and EmployBridge, we have the scale to invest in technology, to invest in training, to invest in people, and that gets passed along to our franchise owners,” says Bickes. “We help you gain a competitive advantage.”
One of the biggest advantages of owning a Remedy franchise is the fact that we fully fund the payroll of your associates and handle collections from your clients. That greatly reduces your level of financial risk and removes a huge administrative burden from your shoulders.
Here are some of the many other ways our staffing agency business model helps franchise owners:
The advantages of franchising
For independent operators, the temporary staffing business can have high barriers to entry. These are some of the main hurdles you could face in the industry, and how Remedy helps franchisees overcome them.
- Payroll processing and office management. Remedy handles payroll processing, W-2s, reporting, billing and collections, drastically reducing franchisees’ level of risk and need for cash on hand.
- Complexity. Remedy provides technology, processes and support that streamline nearly every aspect of operating your business, on the front end and the back end.
- Client acquisition. Remedy and our parent company, EmployBridge, have brand recognition and existing national account relationships with a number of high-volume clients in markets throughout the country, which helps franchisees build their client base more easily.
How we win
The real key to success isn’t based around just what you do or just what we do; it’s how we bring those two pieces together to provide the labor solutions clients need and the career opportunities associates need. We grow the business and capture a higher share of the market by meeting those needs better than the competition and by becoming both the provider of choice for clients and the employer of choice for associates.
One way we do that is through Better WorkLife Academy, an online learning portal for associates that we’ve developed with one of the largest online training providers, Penn Foster. That helps associates develop specialized skill sets, making them more valuable to employers in their market and increasing their own level of career satisfaction. That helps close the skills gap in the labor pool, so companies can find more qualified candidates. And that, in turn, makes your services more valuable, leading to increased market share and long-term associate and client retention.
State-of-the-art technology, deep market intelligence
We’re also able to invest in proprietary technology at a level that franchisees couldn’t on their own. We constantly look to see what we can automate, what we can eliminate and how we can provide things at a lower cost and time commitment to franchisees. Our state-of-the-art platforms drive efficiency and remove friction for you, your associates and your clients.
For example, candidates can complete our entire application process directly from their mobile device, reducing paperwork and administrative labor for them and the franchisee. Better WorkLife Academy is available online for associates at any time. Our website portal and mobile app also allow instant communication, including automated messages that can go out to every associate at once, improving the speed and quality of communication while making it easier than ever before.
Franchisees also have access to extensive data from across the entire EmployBridge portfolio, gathered from our decades of experience in the industry and thousands of clients across the country, providing franchisees with best practices, market intelligence like competitive pay rates and more.
“All of our tools that are available to EmployBridge at large are available to every one of our Remedy franchisees because we’re growing the business together, in every market,” says Bickes.
