Business cost reduction franchise, BCR Associates, is strengthening its franchise network by investing in a bespoke coaching and group training initiative.

The company is working with award winning Straight Forward Success, an established company which specialises in helping companies improve and develop their businesses with a range of both short-term and long-term coaching and training programmes and proven management tools.

BCR Associates’ franchise owners are benefiting from a combination of one-to-one coaching and group training sessions. The programme is designed to equip each franchise owner with a range of simple, yet powerful tools that help to develop a secure and solid framework needed to achieve significant business growth.

Training has also been extended to key personnel at BCR Associates’ head office, to encourage enhanced efficiency and further fine-tune the operations function and support service to franchise owners.

A key feature of the training system is that franchise owners are required to undertake the work themselves, using supplied templates and modules to accelerate their learning, stimulating personal success.

Franchise owner Julian Strutt said: “The sessions have proved to be extremely beneficial. Anthony, the Managing Director of Straight Forward Success, has provided me with excellent tools for planning, monitoring and analysing achievements. I am now more focused on the areas that will bring results, have a well structured weekly timetable and a clearer vision for the future.”

Anthony McGloin, Managing Director of Straight Forward Success, said: “Our aim is to help a company achieve not just excellent but outstanding results. It's been great to see how the BCR Associates’ Directors and franchise owners have embraced the new concept and achieved dramatic improvements in just a few weeks. This is a business destined for World Class status.”

Chris Battin, joint founder of BCR Associates, added: “Our philosophy at BCR Associates has always been to strive to be the best in our sector. Our franchise owners have been carefully selected to ensure they share the same passion, vision and commitment as the team at head office. We are delighted with the enthusiastic response from our franchise owners and have been impressed by their appetite to embrace new ways in which to improve their business. Most importantly we are pleased with the positive impact this training is having on BCR Associates’ overall performance and we look forward to reaping the long-term rewards of our investment.”
