Westaff Franchise Information:

Introducing Westaff

Westaff has always been on the cutting edge of change – the leading player in shaping the future world of work and renewing labor markets. This endures today as the Company seeks new ways to advance the workforce and prepare the labor market for tomorrow.

Founded in 1948 in San Francisco, Westaff pioneered the temporary staffing industry. The company introduced the temporary staffing concept to the West Coast and provided job opportunities to many who up until that time had remained unemployed. In the spirit of innovation and inclusiveness, Westaff focused on creating ways for key groups, such as women, to enter the workforce.

We honor our spirited beginnings by demonstrating every day the same commitment, passion for the business and high values that helped create Westaff. And it's paying off. We've earned the reputation as one of the largest, most experienced and knowledgeable staffing companies in the country.

Today, Westaff is considered one of the most experienced staffing companies in the country, employing more than 175,000 associates worldwide and serving more than 20,000 clients from a network of more than 204 offices throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Why a Westaff Franchise?

Westaff franchise owners are able to leverage the corporate infrastructure of an experienced staffing leader. Join our team and Westaff will bill your clients, pay your associate employees and provide the software applications and cutting-edge technology that connects you to the corporate network. That means you can eliminate many of the operating costs associated with running your business and instead focus on what's most important – growing your business.

Capitalize on a high-growth industry

Over the next decade, the U.S. staffing industry will add more jobs than just about any other industry, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In fact, spending on staffing is expected to reach $110 billion in 2008 according to Staffing Industry Analysts.

Align yourself with a proven leader that offers comprehensive services

Our company – and our industry – has stood the test of time. With 60 years of experience, Westaff understands the trends and nuances of staffing. We're able to guide our franchise offices because we've been in the industry from its inception.
