About Spherion

Our workforce solutions focus on temporary staffing, temp-to-hire, on-premise staff management and outsourced talent acquisition. While we specialize in light industrial, administrative & clerical, and professional IT placements, our team has the connections and insights needed to find the most capable employees for any company.

Spherion franchise owners enjoy a wide variety of responsibilities and daily activities. Our local office franchisees are typically the sales and client relationship drivers. They spend much of their time out of the office seeing prospects, visiting clients, touring customer worksites, and networking within the business community. They oversee their staff whose primary role is to recruit, screen, interview and match suitable candidates with employer clients. As small business owners, franchisees manage their financial information while projecting growth and resolving issues.

Competition

Montana enjoys a strong and resilient economy. At 1.9%, the state boasts one of the U.S.'s lowest unemployment rates. This drives wages as well as margins up, but does increase recruiting complexity and demand for talent. Spherion is enjoying robust growth thanks to a rebounding post-pandemic economy and shifts in the labor market. Staffing Industry Analysts predicts 4% growth for the staffing industry in 2022. Spherion is outpacing that projection and expects the demand for flexibility and scalability by clients to continue fueling growth.

Growth & Expansion

Montana's 2019 GSP reached $47.2B, with 5-year growth of 1.8%. Montana businesses employed 24.2M in 2018 with 2.6% employment growth. Friendly regulation gives business space to grow, but worker productivity is compromised by the incredible leisure opportunity. Spherion and the staffing industry is enjoying robust growth thanks to a post-pandemic economy. Staffing Industry Analysts predicts 4% growth for the industry in 2022.
