Company recognizes performances from franchisees as some of the best in the country

ATLANTA — EmployBridge recently celebrated a number of outstanding achievements at its recent Annual Franchise Conference honoring Remedy and Westaff franchisees and their staff.

“We recognized nearly 100 individuals representing franchisees all over the country,” said Steve Mills, Franchise Division President.

EmployBridge is recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts as America’s largest industrial staffing firm.  The company puts more than 400,000 temporary associates to work annually in 48 states through a network of over 400 offices. Included in their brand portfolio are two franchise brands: Westaff and Remedy Intelligent Staffing.

“Our Annual Franchise Conference is always a great time to hear stories of creative solutions, dogged determination and the unending commitment to helping good people find great jobs,” said Mills. “Our most prestigious award recognized our Franchisee of the Year, Jay and Stephanie Pichard. Their story involved many business successes but also a human one: they went way beyond the call of duty to help a client whose plant facility was decimated by Hurricane Michael and help many of their associates get back to work.

“The Top Franchise Region award went to Brian and Diane Rose. Team Rose has 12 offices from Florida to Kansas and had another remarkable year,” said Mills. “Not ones to rest on their laurels, they are expanding their services yet again in 2019.

Franchise owner Larry Caldarera won the prestigious Leadership Award. In the year in which Larry celebrated 60 years of Westaff in New Orleans, this honor was a fitting accolade. The Staff Performance Manager winner is David Cahill, whose all-around exceptional performance is noted daily at his Remedy franchise in Virginia Beach. His results-driven work ethic is also evident outside the office: he has coached his four sons’ teams to multiple wrestling and football titles. Brandyn Jacob was recognized as Top Producer for the Franchise Division. It’s the third year in the last five that Brandyn has earned this prestigious award. As a founding member of the Top Gun training program, Brandyn is also setting new standards in mentoring, coaching and generally giving back.

EmployBridge CEO Tom Bickes summed up by saying, “These awards show that our franchisees are some of the very best staffing professionals in the nation. But don’t take our word for it. These awards are based on survey results from clients and temporary associates alike. We couldn’t be prouder of our franchise partners.”  Both Remedy and Westaff have been honored for superior service as 2019 winners of ClearlyRated’s Best of Staffing® Client and Talent Awards – a prestigious distinction earned by less than 2 percent of all staffing firms in the U.S. and Canada.
