[email protected] Awards recognize the franchise companies with the best culture based on direct employee feedback and ratings 

Franchising@WORK Award Graphic no yearPortsmouth, NH – February 24, 2022 – Franchise Business Review, an independent research firm specializing in the franchise sector, has announced the call for entries for the 2022 [email protected] Awards. Details on how to enter are available at FranchisingAtWork.com.

The [email protected] Awards recognize the best franchise companies to work for based exclusively on employee ratings and feedback. All franchise employers in the U.S. or Canada – including franchisors, franchise business owners, and franchise suppliers – with 10 employees or more and gross annual revenue of 1M+ are invited to participate. 

Winners are determined based on employees’ responses to the [email protected] Employee Engagement & Compensation Benchmark Survey conducted by Franchise Business Review. The survey asks employees to rate their employer on 24 core benchmark questions related to job satisfaction, engagement, management, brand leadership, and culture, as well as questions about their position, compensation, benefits, and demographics.

The entry deadline for the awards is March 31, 2022. Winners will be announced in June. The top scoring companies will be recognized in Small (under 25 employees), Medium (25-99 employees) and Large (100+ employees) categories. The top scoring franchise suppliers will also be recognized.

“Recruiting and retaining employees was challenging pre-pandemic. Now, it’s nearly impossible for some organizations, as work/life balance, job flexibility, remote work, and higher wages have become top priorities,” said Michelle Rowan, president and COO of Franchise Business Review. “In today’s employee’s market, recognition as an ‘Employer of Choice’ within the franchise sector is more important than ever to attract and retain top talent. The [email protected] Awards not only publicly recognize the companies in the franchise sector that are great places to work, the research behind the awards provides franchise companies with powerful benchmarking data to understand how their culture, compensation, and benefits compare to others.”
