Latest franchisee Foundation Training comes to a close
Driver Hire’s latest cohort of new franchisees and office staff have just completed their two weeks of classroom-based training at the Driver Hire head office in Bradford.
Over 20 delegates attended the Foundation Course, including franchisees for 7 Driver Hire offices (6 resales and a new office opening). They are all set to start over the coming months; setting the scene for some exciting times ahead.
As well as the classroom-based training, franchisees also spend two to four weeks, either side of the training at head office, shadowing existing franchisees and staff within a Driver Hire office. This really helps to cement their learning and put it into practice.
It’s not all work and no play when it comes to our training, and delegates can take part in a series of evening activities which include a curry night, quiz and ten-pin bowling. This is a great opportunity for them and the Driver Hire support team to network and enjoy a bit of friendly competition.
We will introduce our new franchisees once they settle into their new ventures, so watch this space for further updates.
In the meantime, here’s some feedback we received:
“The Driver Hire Foundation Training provided crucial information to help me make a success of my business. It’s especially useful for anyone coming into the industry for the first time.” – Sam
“Throughout the training and on every level, you can see how passionate all the staff at Driver Hire’s Group Services are about the business and in supporting us.” – Ash
“We were so impressed with Driver Hire’s Foundation Training. I’ve now got so many ideas that I’m looking forward to implementing in my business.” Sindy
“Being able to attend a foundation training course was so invaluable for myself so that I could get a deeper understanding about the Network support, processes and procedures. By the end of foundation, you are left with so many notes, ideas, tips and so much more compared to starting a business alone. It provides an opportunity to meet other people across the network who you can call on for support and put a name to a face early on creating a warmer environment for the network you are joining.” – Paul
The next Driver Hire Foundation Training will take place in May 2019.
