Companies Recognize the Power of Comprehensive Benefits in Attracting and Retaining Top Talent

2024-04-11T21:13:47-04:00April 11th, 2024|Tags: , , , |

However, Offering All Desired Benefits Impossible

Latest Results from The Harris Poll

OKLAHOMA CITY — Offering all the benefits employees want is seemingly impossible, according to a recent Express Employment Professionals-Harris Poll survey. However, companies appear tuned in to the advantages benefits may provide — including attracting and retaining employees, as well as potentially easing turnover rates.

Nearly half of U.S. hiring managers (48%) report more employees at their company have asked for better benefits this year, compared to last year, because of an increase in the cost of living. But delivering on this expectation may not be possible for all. Two-thirds feel it’s impossible to offer all the benefits employees want now (66%).

While half of hiring managers (50%) anticipate their company’s traditional benefits will remain the same next year, it appears some companies are trying to meet the demands. More than 2 in 5 (42%) report their company plans to increase benefits in 2024 — up from the second half of 2022, where 37% planned to increased benefits in 2023.

Seventy percent of hiring managers say their company has modified benefits specifically in the hopes of retaining current employees or attracting new ones.

Around 3 in 10 report they have offered cost of living raises (31%) and/or increased the amount of paid time off offered to employees (27%). Others say their company has offered customizable benefits packages (21%), offered additional healthcare incentives such as a gym membership or mental health resources (21%) and/or increased the amount of sick leave available (21%).

These modifications may even help to alleviate turnover, as better benefits and perks being offered at other companies are thought to be contributing to employees’ desire to look elsewhere for employment.

Reducing Benefits

As the labor market has softened and employment costs have soared, Express experts across the country said clients are pulling back on the generous benefits that were extended not too long ago.

“Clients have stepped back from attendance awards, retention bonuses and even referral bonuses,” said Nancy Reed, Express franchise owner in Texas. “They don’t think they need to be offering so many bonuses now that there are more people available seeking employment.”

Companies were forced to be creative with retention efforts coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic due to record unemployment, and Express franchise owner Alyssa Chumbley in Indiana cites examples such as an onsite meal service, 30-minute arrival grace windows, shorter shifts and money for “shout-out” appreciation gift cards given between coworkers.

“The creativity of benefit options has dwindled, and the extension of offerings are less abundant,” Chumbley said. “However, flexibility in screening and onboarding, in addition to schedule flexibility once hired, continues to be apparent in order to retain employees.”

Despite the availability of more workers in the current labor pool, continuing to shape a healthy company culture should be top of mind for business owners to avoid affecting the bottom line.

“Turnover can cost as much as up to 150% of the departing employee’s salary, not to mention the strain on the remaining staff,” said Bill Stoller, Express Employment International CEO. “It’s not feasible to offer every desired benefit but choose the ones that resonate the most with your workforce. Investing in people is what makes them stay.”

Survey Methodology
The Job Insights survey was conducted online within the United States by The Harris Poll on behalf of Express Employment Professionals between Oct. 31 and Nov. 10, 2023, among 1,007 U.S. hiring decision-makers.

Rolling Suds Taps Industry Expert J.T. Thiessen as Chief Development Officer, Sparks Partnership for Top-Secret Project

2024-04-11T21:07:36-04:00April 11th, 2024|Tags: , , , |

Leading Residential + Commercial Power Washing Franchise Appoints Franchise Veteran Ahead of Top-Secret Project

PHILADELPHIA — Rolling Suds, a leader in residential and commercial power washing for 30-plus years, announces the appointment of Jonathan (J.T.) Thiessen to Chief Development Officer. While this news marks the brand’s first Chief Development Officer, it also represents a significant milestone in what promises to be a groundbreaking partnership between Thiessen and Rolling Suds’ CEO and Owner, Aaron Harper.

Harper and Thiessen have been working towards this partnership for years, both wanting to come together and positively impact the franchising landscape. While specific details regarding the partnership between the two industry leaders remain confidential, the eagerly anticipated project is already in progress, and the new business partners are slated to unveil further details during Q4 of this year.

J.T. Thiessen has been a significant figure in the franchise industry for over 20 years in several capacities, from Director of Franchise Development to Vice President of Franchise Licensing to his most recent position as Chief Development Officer at Home Franchise Concepts. After garnering a variety of opportunities due to his impressive reputation and extensive experience in the industry, Thiessen decided to join forces with Harper to spearhead a new top-secret project that the two have been conceptualizing for quite some time, dedicated to promoting Responsible Franchising. While the two work to execute this exciting project, Thiessen will serve as Chief Development Officer at Rolling Suds.

“I’m thrilled to finally be joining forces with Aaron to lead a transformative journey for the franchise industry,” said Thiessen. “Together, we are not just embracing change; we’re shaping it. Our new project embodies our shared vision of empowerment, resilience, and forward-thinking entrepreneurship. With a steadfast commitment to our ideals and a passion for innovation, we look forward to executing a project that goes beyond Rolling Suds and leaves a lasting impact on the franchising landscape and its future.”

An advocate for Responsible Franchising, Harper has led Rolling Suds to rapid, yet sustainable growth in recent years. His guidelines for Responsible Franchising, which will be the core of his and Thiessen’s new project, are to set clear expectations, ensure capital adequacy, choose the right franchisees and prioritize a sustainable growth strategy.

“At Rolling Suds, we’ve always been committed to excellence – in our services, our relationships, and our franchise opportunities,” said Harper. “This partnership with J.T. has been a long time coming, and we’re poised to take that commitment to the next level through our newest project. Together, we will continue to lead the industry with innovation, integrity, and unwavering dedication.”

Rolling Suds is a proven business backed by more than 30-years of industry experience and knowledge. One of its key differentiators is the quality and process of the service itself, and ability to complete jobs two to three times more quickly. Rolling Suds has a proprietary cleaning process which utilizes high-quality materials and a specific dilution of soaps within their wash method. With state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained professionals, Rolling Suds is a sustainable business with the ability to invest back into itself.

The Rolling Suds brand and franchise is built on three core elements – relationships, reputation and reliability – and each are applicable to both consumers and franchisees. Having unparalleled experience in such an unregulated industry, Rolling Suds franchisees will be able to differentiate themselves from competitors through a recession-resistant business model. The business support that franchisees receive is immense, including a nine-week interactive power launch training program, one week in person training, six months of lead generation, digital and marketing needs handled, technician training, among many other essential business aspects are provided. It’s truly a complete business in a box.

Rolling Suds is the premier franchise in power washing, bringing unparalleled standards to an unregulated industry. The company, founded more than 30 years ago, has helped more than 200,000 residential and commercial customers while building a great reputation by hiring the best people, using the best equipment, and providing the best experience in the industry.

Local Entrepreneur Brings Light to Naples Community with New Blingle! Franchise

2024-04-11T21:01:31-04:00April 11th, 2024|Tags: , , , |

NAPLES, Fla. — Blingle!, the premier outdoor lighting franchise, announced today its newest location in Naples, Fla., their fifth in the Sunshine state, that is owned and operated by Cheryl Alker. The Greater Naples team opened its doors earlier this winter and is already experiencing high demand.

“When doing research, I came across Blingle! and saw it as a brand that I could really getting immersed in,” said Alker. “The lighting industry as a whole is very uplifting, be it holiday, landscape or the amazing technology of permanent, it is not a need but a want. This is a joyful purchase that brings happiness to clients. I am looking forward to bringing my eye to detail and design flair to customers and literally lighting up the Greater Naples community.”

Having moved from the UK many years ago, Alker is no stranger to the hard work and perseverance of starting something new, and together with her talented team, she is ready to grow Blingle! with the same mindset and make an impact. Alker will serve the Greater Naples area, working from Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island all the way down to Marco Island.

“We are excited to welcome Cheryl to the Blingle! family,” Josh Skolnick, Founder of HorsePower Brands said. “To be able to bring the premier products and service that we have to offer to the Greater Naples community is a great opportunity.”

“After our dog passed away in June, my partner Peggy and I were considering getting a new dog, but what better way to cure that puppy craving than being surrounded by dogs every day,” said Barbara. “We are very excited to re-establish this Dogtopia location in Jacksonville as a fun, comfortable and safe spot for dog daycare and boarding. At Dogtopia, we care about your dog, and, hand-in-hand with that, every dog is treated with respect and understanding.”
