IFA is pleased to announce a series of webinars starting this fall focused on several issues related to current human resource challenges. IFA's Labor & Hiring Webinar Series will provide attendees with an insight into how others in the franchise community are addressing:

  • Employees returning to the workplace post-pandemic;
  • Re-activating, hiring, and retaining talent;
  • The economics surrounding hiring, including wage pressure and remaining available federal funding options;
  • And lastly, alternative hiring strategies and opportunities to reach new potential employees.

On September 8th we will address some top employee concerns in the return-to-office conversation. Jo Kirchner of Primrose Schools and Anne Huntington Sharma of Huntington Learning Centers will lead a conversation around what they are experiencing in the childcare and after-school programming space and how they are addressing parental concern. Bud Summers of PuroClean will join the conversation to talk about office cleaning procedures, protocols, and policies. And, particularly what their franchisees are being requested to perform by their clients.
