About this Session

As an insurance professional, a broker helps you make smart choices about your protection. Your broker works for you, not the insurer, to ensure you have the right insurance cover for your business and stay well covered as your needs change. Understanding what’s affecting your industry and how best to maximise a group offer for your Franchisees goes hand in hand.

Global events, local market appetite and legislation all affect FANZ Members whether they care to acknowledge and confront head-on or, take a hands-off approach. How does your Franchise approach your annual insurance spend and when last did you re-visit your thinking?

Come along to a session run by front-line professionals that work daily with businesses such as yours and listen to some of the changes and pressures affecting your business while understanding some of the collective buying you can do to ensure a better outcome in both cover and pricing.

About this Session

Empowering franchisees to be exceptional people leaders

Cultivating a holistic approach to HR best practice across a franchise system is a significant challenge for franchisors.

Franchisee managers are fundamentally entrepreneurs, and HR skills can naturally come second; this is where the right systems and support make all the difference.

How your franchise and franchisees manage HR matters can significantly impact on the success of your brand. It’s critical to ensure all franchise locations have the right HR processes in place. With a clear HR compliance strategy, you can address people issues swiftly and strengthen your franchise to perform at its best.

Come along to hear Vaughan Granier, National Workplace Relations Manager at HR Assured, where he’ll take you through smart workplace strategies that will help you regain time, focus on valuable initiatives and equip every franchisee to manage their people with confidence.

Rethinking your franchising strategy: Optimising your system for the new reality with BDO’s 7P Diagnostic Tool

As franchisors navigate the wake of COVID-19, their ability to adapt will be key. Many will have paused to reconsider the obvious business impacts, but have you truly tested your strategy against local and global benchmarks?  Do you have a full understanding of the core business functions (internal factors) impacted by the global pandemic which need to be optimised and realised?

People. Processes. Purpose. Profit. Performance. Productivity. Place.

Come along to learn how to apply BDO’s new 7p model to ensure that your system can successfully adapt to the new reality. To get the most out of this interactive session facilitated by BDO’s franchise experts, we encourage you to complete this brief 10min survey in advance.
