Empowering a Diverse Workforce in the Electrical Industry
The electrical service industry is one of the most vital industries in the world, powering homes, businesses and economies. However, despite the strength of the industry, it has traditionally lacked diversity. At Mister Sparky Electric, we recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion in not only our industry, but in all industries. A diverse workforce brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and perspectives to the table, leading to improved decision-making, innovation and customer service.
Currently, only 4% of electricians in the United States are women and only 8% are people of color. This lack of diversity limits the pool of potential workers and is a significant problem for the industry as a whole. In order to address this issue, we have implemented several initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion within our company.
Mister Sparky offers a diversification discount for women and minorities who are interested in becoming franchise owners. The franchise fee is reduced by $5,000 and offered through the International Franchise Association's DiversityFran programs. We understand that not everyone has the resources available to start their own business successfully, and our diversification discount is designed to help create more ownership opportunities within our franchise network.
Mister Sparky Electric is committed to creating a culture where our people, processes and tools foster success no matter who you are. We believe that an inclusive work environment is essential for the growth and development of our company, and we are dedicated to promoting an inclusive work environment where all of our employees and franchise owners can feel appreciated, respected, and welcomed.
We are passionate about keeping franchise owners of diverse backgrounds vital to our economy. Our diverse workforce brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, which has helped our company to grow and succeed.
