How important is it to train an employee? Some employers can be under the impression that hiring a candidate after perusing their resume is enough. But is it? Every level of a franchise operation needs training. Let us examine how. 1. On-boarding a new franchisee Every franchisee is the captain of their ship and should know how to steer the ship, clean it, maintain it and rescue it in an emergency. The franchisee training programme handholds the individual, teaching them all aspects of operations. From assembling the product, packaging and billing to day-to-day management. Every franchisee is taught the basics of how to: Maintain Accounts Read A Profit & Loss Statement Strategies Sales Handle Employees Maintain Food Stocks Keep An Inventory Utilise Communication Skills This training helps a franchisee manage all the operations single-handedly. A franchisee with this training is prepared with a contingency plan whenever a challenging situation arises. 2. Training experienced franchisees Robust brands believe that every hardworking franchisee should grow along with them. Like true champions, they should continue to aspire for bigger, higher, and stronger, ones instead of limiting themselves to only one outlet. The franchisor helps the experienced franchisees to get trained. They are given the vision, the goals and the means to become adept at running multiple outlets simultaneously. In a franchising business, the franchisor invests in the leadership skills of its franchisees. Instead of containing their training to the initial 4–6-week induction module, they keep franchisee training as an ongoing interactive process. They conduct sessions on various life skills, making ‘learning’ a lifelong and shared experience. 3. Training store managers Every level of staff in an organisation needs a different kind of training that is relevant to their work profile. Similarly, a store manager should also know every aspect of the day-to-day operations of the outlet. They must be adept at managing the outlet via a customised set of tutorials, along with personal training. That is what a franchisor provides.

Training the cashiers Accounts and handling daily cash transactions is a very responsible task. A person appointed as the store cashier should have a keen understanding of accounting, billing and maintaining cash and balances, and should be ethical and honest in all dealings.

Training the front-end staff The front-end staffs are the final and most direct link between the brand and the customers.
