InfoPro Worldwide urges unhappy UK workers to take control of their careers

Franchisee recruitment plan enables people to be the boss and increase earning potential (August 23, 2007)

DMN Newswire--2007-8-23--InfoPro Worldwide (, a network of franchisee businesses, is urging people to take control of their careers following research revealing that almost a quarter (6.9 million) of UK employees are unhappy at work*.  The company, which focuses on bringing IT services to the SMB (small and medium business) sector, is recruiting franchisees to drive its expansion into the UK market.

New franchisees will be given the opportunity to start up and manage their own enterprise under the 'safety net' of InfoPro Worldwide's comprehensive training, support and business structure programme.  The scheme is aimed at people who, having gained skills and expertise in a professional environment, are looking for a career move that will enable them to take charge of a commercial entity - as well as increase their earning potential.

Simon Picken, UK manager at InfoPro Worldwide explains: ?The ambition of many self-motivated is to take control of their careers and 'be their own boss', but starting a business from scratch can be a daunting experience.  InfoPro Worldwide aims to ease that process by providing the support and resources needed to give these people every chance of success.  Operating under the InfoPro Worldwide umbrella enables franchisees to combine a strong local presence with the big consultancy 'look and feel'.  They can also translate their own experience of being an SMB to ensure their clients receive a service that is tailored to meet individual needs, but is reinforced with IPW's proven technology.

InfoPro Worldwide concentrates on working in a consultative way with the expanding SMB market, in recognition that many smaller businesses can be daunted by the potentially complex world of technology.  Its integrated approach to products and services include website development, SEO and web promotion, remote IT management, e-learning and training.

Picken confirms:  ?Technology should drive a business forward and make working life more productive but so often it becomes a headache.  This is particularly prevalent in smaller and medium size organisations, where there is often no dedicated IT resource and other staff staff do not have time to devote to it.  Our teams of qualified professionals, operating via our network of franchisees, aim to ease that burden and ensure that organisations' IT systems assist them with achieving their specific business goals.

InfoProWorldwide is requesting anyone interested in becoming a franchisee to call +44 (0)1753 701803 or email [email protected] for more information.
