What Skills Are Needed to Successfully Run a Staffing Business?

A service-mindset, a passion for networking and being at the center of your local economy are key to own an exceptional Essential Pros staffing business

If you’re interested in owning your own staffing business, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have any prior experience to excel. In fact, there’s a litany of skills that are more important than having actual staffing industry experience such as being community-oriented and deadline-driven. Having a passion for networking, helping people find meaningful work and a desire to be at the center of your local economy are also paramount in succeeding in this business. 

Fortunately, Essential Pros, one of the fastest-growing staffing franchises in the nation, makes it easy for entrepreneurs to go into business for themselves with tremendous advantages in the form of state-of-the-art technology, exceptional back-end office support and proven leadership from our executive team. This allows Essential Pros franchise owners to focus on growing their businesses, drive sales and get the essential part right: connecting quality people with quality work. Moreover, our staffing franchise has spent the past 13 years building a business model that is not only easy-to-run, but also generates high profit potential and is easy-to-scale. 

“If you’re looking to enter the growing staffing industry, Essential Pros is the way to go, ” says Travis Powell, CEO and founder of Essential Pros. “It doesn’t matter whether you have industry experience or not because staffing is a people-drive business. So as long as you’re willing to cultivate relationships with both businesses and the people in your community, we can train you on how to successfully operate your business, win clients, explain the Essential Difference with confidence, and much more.”Essential Pros Staffing Franchise employee meeting and high-fiving

Essential Pros Is Your Chance To Capitalize on a Growing Brand in a Growing Industry

Even before Covid-19, the staffing industry was expected to reach 163 million by 2022, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Today, staffing franchises are more relevant than ever before as more than 42 million Americans have applied for unemployment since mid-March, per the government agency. This means that millions of job seekers are relying on staffing agencies to find temporary and long-term employment. 

Entrepreneurs who invest in an Essential Pros staffing franchise can capitalize on this increasing demand for jobs. From the very beginning, our staffing franchise has been committed to helping our franchise owners excel in business, which is a direct result of our culture. Essential Pros is a family business, and that matters because staffing is also a family business. Our Founder and CEO Travis Powell works alongside his wife, Nicole, who serves as Vice President of Essential Pros. Together they oversee five offices in Nebraska with exceptional leadership who have been with the company for years.

“It’s a great time to join Essential Pros today because we’ve developed a business model over the past 13 years that has proven to work,” says Powell. “We’ve been enormously successful and have grown consistently year-over-year. Now we want to share our proven business model with entrepreneurs who want to join a dynamic industry and own a business that truly makes an impact in their communities.”
