LAKELAND, Fla. (June 15, 2023) — For the third consecutive year, Curious Jane kept its top spot among franchise vendors in Franchise Business Review’s 2023 Franchising@WORK Awards.
Franchising@WORK Awards recognize companies in the franchise industry with the highest employee satisfaction based on an independent survey of their staff members.
Curious Jane, which is a national advertising agency for franchises, won the Gold Award in the Supplier Category, which recognizes franchise vendors. It was one of eight finalists.
“This award is such an honor for us,” said Lora Kellogg, CFE, president and CEO of Curious Jane. “It’s a humbling reflection of the amazing culture we have created together in our agency. We value the feedback we receive each year through this survey and strive to make improvements. Having a fun and vibrant agency culture makes it easier to attract incredibly talented people and keep them. When prospective clients ask what it’s like to work with us, we tell them we are fun people who do serious work. Our clients notice the difference.”
Franchise Business Review’s industrywide Franchising@WORK Employee Engagement Benchmarking Study provides aggregate data that helps franchise companies understand how their culture and engagement compare with others.
Participants were asked questions related to job satisfaction, engagement, skills and experience, management, brand leadership and culture.
Companies from the franchise industry that participated in Franchise Business Review’s employee engagement research were eligible for the Franchising@WORK Awards. Franchise Business Review analyzed data from more than 6,000 professionals from 180 franchise organizations to identify the finalists based on responses from their employees in eight key areas.
“The Franchising@WORK Awards are the only awards that recognize the companies that have fostered a positive, inclusive culture and prioritize employee engagement and well-being within the franchise sector,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “At a time when recruiting and retaining quality employees is everything, these companies have set themselves apart as top employers in franchising through their commitment to employee satisfaction, asking for feedback, and involving their teams in driving the success of their culture.”
Curious Jane also has been named to Entrepreneur’s Top Franchise Suppliers ranking for best franchise marketing agencies for four consecutive years.
