The Staffing Industry: A High-Growth Business

The staffing industry has come a long way since its inception in the 1940’s. Founded in 1946, Spherion® has been there from the start.. We know the industry inside and out because we’ve lived the industry since the beginning. What was once a job of supplying temps for a day has evolved into a full-service staffing industry–one that businesses of all sizes consider part of their core workforce. In short, our company and our industry has stood the test of time. Here are some statistics that portray the staffing industry:

  • Over the next decade, the U.S. staffing industry will grow faster and add more jobs than just about any other industry (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)
  • Sixty-one percent of talent acquisition budgets went to staffing companies for contingent workers (Aberdeen Group Study)
  • Companies whose workforces are comprised of 10 percent or more flexible workers realize better financial and share price growth (Lehigh University/University of Oklahoma Joint Study)
Spherion franchise owners are able to tap into this exciting growth market by leveraging the expertise, credibility and knowledge base, amassed from more than 65 years of experience and leadership in the industry. Moreover, you’ll step into a staffing business recognized for its local focus and unparalleled customer service—a reputation that has earned Spherion the respect and loyalty of companies nationwide.
