Global Talent Solutions (GTS), the premier executive search, recruitment and talent acquisition partner to the franchise industry, has partnered with Hyrell, an award-winning franchise recruiting software provider, to get America’s franchise community back to work amid the Coronavirus crisis.
With the COVID-19 pandemic leaving millions unemployed and searching for jobs, the Hyrell and GTS partnership provides franchise companies and industry executives complimentary access to technology and resources enabling them to get back on their feet and back to work as quickly as possible. The partnership enables two leaders in the recruiting and talent acquisition space to develop a program that provides both executive outplacement services to franchisors who have been forced to displace members of their corporate team, as well as a hiring system for their franchisees, at no charge. Additionally, both franchisors and franchisees will be provided access to award-winning technology that enables them to effectively ramp up hiring at the local level as each state begins to reopen.

“So many people are suffering due to the pandemic, so it’s great to be able to give back to the franchise community and support them through this partnership. We’re providing necessary resources to franchisors and displaced franchise executives due to unforeseen layoffs, working to get them back on their feet as quickly as possible,” said Michael Ruiz, CEO of GTS.
The Complimentary Executive Outplacement Services include a variety of resources to give back to those displaced in franchising:
- Career Counseling/Guidance and Marketability Sessions – this resource helps those effected by layoffs and furloughs to clarify their skills, define interests and map career trajectories to set them up for success in finding and landing their next position and through the entire recruitment process.
- Career Marketing Plans and Preparation – this service helps in personal marketing plan development, resume and LinkedIn review & completion, and interview preparation training.
- Inclusion in GTS’ Career Connect program – its professional talent acquisition professionals will proactively work on behalf of those displaced to uncover opportunities and connect them directly with hiring executives.
