Get To Know Us – Ross Thompson
WorkforceXS is uniquely different from other recruitment and labour hire agencies because each of our offices is owned and operated by a dedicated franchisee. This means faster decision-making for employers and job-seekers because each owner-operator is free to make their own business assessments. Our franchisees possess expert recruitment knowledge and are committed to successfully placing the RIGHT candidate in the RIGHT job first time, every time. We are proud to introduce you to Managing Director of WorkforceXS Nowra, Ross Thompson.
Ross opened the Nowra franchise in June 2014 and specialises in providing recruitment and labour hire services to businesses across southern New South Wales. Ross expertly places staff in the construction, transport & logistics, manufacturing and healthcare sectors. We asked him a few questions:
Q. What initially attracted you to WorkforceXS?
A. I did a lot of research about what was out there on offer for recruitment businesses and who was franchising. I looked at the WorkforceXS network and found an easiness of communicating about what was on offer with WorkforceXS.
Q. What’s the point of difference that WorkforceXS offers compared with other recruitment franchises?
A. I found that other companies weren’t as responsive. I’ve developed great working relationships and friendships since coming on as a franchisee. Also the support that they offer is absolutely amazing.
Q. What are the benefits of being a WorkforceXS Franchisee?
A. Again the support is amazing. The systems are top notch, not just all their technical systems but also things like their operations manual. It meant that I could just hit the road running and start selling.
Q. What do you feel WorkforceXS could improve upon to better support their franchisees?
A. Hmmm, that’s a hard one, I don’t see any need for improvements that I can think of at the moment.
Q. What is unique about your WorkforceXS franchise?
A. It’s the personal service to both candidates and clients. I am out there on site each morning making sure that my candidates all show up and are inducted – and that really matters to my clients.
Q. Do you have any advice for other people interested in a WorkforceXS franchise?
A. If people want a recruitment franchise with amazing support from the franchisor I feel that WorkforceXS goes a long way to fill that need.
