Talent Acquisition and Employee Performance to
Boost your Profitability!

BDC Performance is a team with international experience that partners franchisors and retailers to deliver enhanced performance and profit through better engaged employees and franchisees. Invest in your people to enhance business performance and outcomes for all stakeholders. 

High Tech Talent Acquisition

We believe key head office and field management roles are the lifeblood of an organisation, and their collective impact is often equal to or more significant at times than senior leaders.  

For this reason, we will apply the same rigour, industry insights and proven methodologies as we do for Executive Search, including our unique profiling technology, Zorakle, to measure your values, preferred work styles, business competencies and your company’s stage of growth.

We will provide you with an executive overview, and then consult with you to determine the experience, values, competencies and work styles required for the ideal candidate.

Our services are tailored to meet your needs and leverage technology, including video-based screening, to ensure a successful outcome for a single role, building a team or an ongoing talent pool for the future.

Retail and Franchise Networking

the Operations Performance eXchange—an initiative tailored for Retail & Franchising Leaders. Running on the last Wednesday of each month, BDC Performance will host monthly online forums. These sessions are designed for franchise and retail leaders actively involved in managing multiple business units, such as field managers, operations managers, region managers, and franchise consultants.

Structured to extract ‘best practice’ insights, participants will engage in a collaborative environment, fostering connections and gaining fresh perspectives to advance both their professional and personal goals. Moreover, attendees will have the chance to validate coaching techniques and approaches, receiving key takeaways after each session.

Franchisee Satisfaction Surveys

Going with your gut doesn’t cut it in today’s data-driven business environment. In order to make informed decisions and drive strategic initiatives, tapping into the valuable insights of your franchisees is essential for success. 

Our franchisee satisfaction surveys measure satisfaction and engagement and provide you with detailed, objective data on the health of your franchise system.

In partnership with global survey leader Franchise Business Review, we utilize our industry-leading survey platform to collect honest, actionable feedback from franchise owners to benchmark franchisee satisfaction and engagement compared to other franchise organizations, provide operational insights on the current state of the franchisee network, and identify growth opportunities.
