HR Consulting, Staffing & Health Benefits for the Franchise Industry

While the focus for franchises is often on brand awareness and customer service, it’s equally important to understand how to manage business administration, compliance, and their most important asset - people.

BBSI provides business solutions to franchise organizations and franchisees across the country. From human resources and payroll administration, to risk management and strategic consulting, BBSI partners with franchises to drive efficiency, ensure compliance, and foster a culture of growth and excellence.

PEO Services for Franchisors & Franchisees

Franchise Owner Training & Education

Franchise owners often start their business because they enjoy working for themselves and have a passion for a product or service. But they don’t always have the knowledge necessary to manage every aspect of the business.

We can help identify your strengths and weaknesses as a franchise owner to pinpoint areas of development, and identify where our team can take work off of your plate. 

We also offer a Learning Management System called BBSI U that includes a wide range of interactive courses and training modules for professional skills and leadership development.

Health Insurance & 401k Plans

Leveraging health benefits and a 401k plan offering as recruiting and retention tools can set you apart as an employer of choice.

Our Benefits Program provides flexible, customizable, and affordable plan options, while our multiple employer retirement plan allows you to support the financial future of your teams without the responsibility of plan implementation, enrollment, or administration.

The best part? All ancillary plans are provided at no cost.

Strategic Staffing & Retention

Whether you're looking for temporary, temp-to-hire, seasonal, or permanent employees, our Staffing and Recruiting Solutions can help.
BBSI's national recruiting network will expand your options, and your dedicated Recruiting Specialist will take care of interviewing and screening all potential hires for you. They'll even perform any background checks and drug testing that your franchise requires. 
If you're struggling to retain employees, your HR Consultant can work with you to develop an employee retention strategy tailored to your business - whether that's introducing heath benefits, expanding paid time-off, or improving your company culture.

Payroll Services

As businesses grow and scale, compensation and payroll become some of the most challenging areas to manage.

In addition to a dedicated Payroll Specialist who you can call anytime, you and your team will have access to our user-friendly payroll software, myBBSI.

This mobile-friendly portal streamlines payroll processing and reporting for you, while providing your team with 24/7 access to their paystubs. Plus, it integrates with TIMECO, our innovative and secure timekeeping solution.

Standardized Process Documentation

Most franchisors have mastered the art of teaching their franchisees how to market their brand and offer a consistent product or service, but standard operating procedures for people and process management tend to fall to the wayside.

Your BBSI Business Partner and HR Consultant can help you document critical operating procedures that can streamline operations in accordance with franchise standards. Standardization leads to efficiency, which makes opening additional franchise locations easier.

HR & Regulatory Compliance

Keeping up with ever-changing employment laws and regulations can feel impossible without the right resources.

Your local HR Consultant is there to support you in all aspects of workforce management, and will work to ensure your franchise remains compliant with local, state, and federal labor laws as they change.

When it comes to risk management, your Risk Consultant is there to help you identify compliance gaps and adopt industry best practices.

Emerging Brand Growth Planning

Emerging brands, or franchises with less than 20 locations, may struggle with growth compared to established franchises.

Our Business Strategy Services can help you build a solid foundation in the areas of finance and sales, people and culture, and processes and product. These strategic planning discussions will be documented in a Business Blueprint customized for your franchise.

As your franchise grows and evolves, your Business Blueprint will adapt accordingly, ensuring that our level of support scales with you as you progress on your business journey.

Workers Compensation

Our non-traditional workers compensation program features shared coverage responsibility and pay-as-you-go premiums. 

Rather than year-end premium audits revealing excess payments, or underpayments triggering a large premium bill, our pay-as-you-go model adjusts your premium costs monthly - freeing up capital to put toward other critical areas of your business.
