The National Franchise Convention Wrap Up

The Franchise Council of Australia’s annual National Franchise Convention was the first in-person version of the event since 2019, and it was the first event WageSafe has attended as a business. The team thoroughly enjoyed meeting with people in the franchise industry face to face and we’re already looking forward to next year’s event. Among the highlights of the event was the session, which featured both Mark Jenkins and David Price (see image below), on the future of payroll compliance. Here we were able to display our insights into the topic on which we’ve based our business solution around and hear perspectives from other leaders in the industry too.
