Staffing & Employment Franchises

Link Staffing Services offers opportunities across the business spectrum:

  • For busy managers it's the opportunity for a productive and flexible labor force;
  • For motivated workers we give the opportunity of stable employment; and
  • For smart entrepreneurs it's the opportunity to build a business in a growing marketplace.

Link Staffing Services Franchise System is Proven…and Growing

The staffing industry is growing fast, up from 3.5 million jobs in 2004 to a projected 5.1 million jobs in 2014 (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics). No wonder Link Staffing Services is growing, too. Today you'll find 39 Link Staffing offices in 13 states and counting, serving hundreds of clients and employing thousands of field staff. Aside from the growth in the staffing industry in general, the reasons for Link's success are simple:

  • Our culture and systems have been honed over our more than 30-year history-since before we even began franchising in 1994;
  • Our sophisticated screening processes ensure our clients get the best of the best;
  • We never stop improving. Never. Our technology both enhances our clients' experiences and increases our franchisees' efficiencies.
  • Link has created a family environment for both our support center staff and franchisees, giving each the resources and support they need to thrive.

It's a formula few other franchisors can match.

Because we supply industrial workers to fast-paced, high-volume, high-need industries, there are always new clients to serve, always new opportunities for growth.

For a Staffing Agency, the Link Staffing Services Franchise Model Just Makes Sense

For those contemplating operating a business, the franchise business model is worth considering. For those interested in operating a staffing business in particular, the franchise business model may be a particularly sensible choice.

At the core of franchising lay the benefits of proven systems and a proven brand.

As staffing professionals know, staffing agencies are particularly systems-heavy. Aside from financial and marketing systems, staffing agencies need systems for recruiting, training and paying qualified employees on an as-needed basis, as well as the systems and resources for managing a constantly changing cash flow environment. Developing all of these systems by yourself can be difficult and time consuming-and you can't afford to get it wrong. Link Staffing Services franchises gain the advantage of sophisticated; time-proven systems from day one-more plug and-play than trial and error.

Building a strong brand requires time, too. Building positive perceptions can take years. Opening a Staffing Agency Franchise like Link Staffing gives you the advantage of a proven and respected brand that inspires instant confidence from both employers and potential field staff alike.
