Franchisor’s approach to ethical and sustainable work practices

Information for franchisors about assuring ethical and sustainable work practices in your franchise.

Your role as a franchisor

Franchising relies on a good relationship between you and your franchisees. Your success depends on your franchisee’s success, and vice-versa.

Since franchisees use your brand, the public sees you and your franchisees as part of a big organisation. Anything that one franchisee does reflects on the whole franchise’s reputation. Breaches of employment standards will have a negative impact on your brand and affect all parties within the franchise.
