Recruiting & Retention

Building Your Team Up to Embrace Your Mister Sparky® Franchise

When you choose to franchise, it isn't just a powerful opportunity for you--it's also an amazing opportunity for your team of employees! Potential owners sometimes worry about how their team will be affected by franchising, but our systems are proven and designed to empower your employees as much as they empower you.

Employees simply want consistency, and that's what our franchise orientation and ongoing training can provide. From managing current employee expectations to bringing in talented professionals that grow your business, we offer the resources you and your team need to navigate the transition.

After working with hundreds of electricians, we've learned that your team members are likely more than willing to embrace the opportunities we provide, including:

  • Developing new skills
  • Create a stronger, more cohesive team
  • Benefit from the reputation of a national brand
