A recruitment program that is focused on bringing in franchisees with the right culture is one way of building a strong franchise network.
But what does that look like? How do you best recruit franchisees for culture? How do you make culture a driving force for business?
It’s one of the topics at the Franchise Council of Australia’s national conference next week.
Steve Simpson is a keynote speaker on leadership at the NFC17, an internationally regarded authority on the subject of corporate culture and creator of Unwritten Ground Rules.
You can catch his keynote address on Tuesday 10 October and later in the day there will be a panel discussion addressing the practical elements of recruiting for culture, facilitated by franchisebusiness.com.au editor Sarah Stowe.
How can you spot a perfect fit in a franchise prospect? Panellists in the Culture Fit – How to get the right franchisees session will share their insights into what exactly we mean by culture and reveal some effective ways to attract the right franchise buyers.
