AtWork Group, an award-winning national staffing franchise, has been ranked No. 18 in the Franchise Times Fast & Serious list, an annual ranking of the smartest-growing brands.

In the midst of the lowest unemployment rates since 2000, AtWork Group has reported a 78 percent sales growth and a 35 percent unit growth over the last three years, landing them the spot on the list. The staffing franchise has progressively utilized more technology and maintained flexible business operations and strategies to evolve alongside an always changing economy and the needs of its customers.

“We want our franchise owners to be successful, so we are always looking for ways to support them with new technologies, such as new client management tools,” said Jason Leverant, president and COO of AtWork Group. “When unemployment is down, the demand for temporary employment increases. However, challenges do arise in sufficient talent acquisition. Being adaptable with our focus and adopting new tools that streamline managing existing clients as well as aid in the recruitment of new talent helps our owners work smarter and more efficiently.”
