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.

Support & Training

Spherion owners receive complete back office and technology support for all functions related to their temporary employees. We process employee payroll, including taxes, insurance and benefits required by law. We invoice the clients, manage collections and application of payments as well as the W-2 process at the end of the year. Our corporate office maintains, supports and troubleshoots all technology, eliminating the need for technical expertise and investment. Spherion's model allows you to focus on the business, not in the business.

Our franchisees enjoy a full range of sales and marketing tools to help promote their business, including: digital marketing, SEO & SEM support; sales collateral; print, radio, billboard and online advertising; social media content; target account programs; direct mail campaigns; salary data; thought leadership research; and community giveback programs. You'll also receive ongoing support from a tenured team of professionals—from accounting, payroll, and technology to operations and marketing.


Riverside County represents more than $500 million in temp help spending, and a majority of that area is included in our Spherion Palm Desert territory. There is plenty of competition in the staffing industry, but few companies have more than a single digit market share percentage. Staffing vendors are critical to the success of local businesses, so most use an array of staffing suppliers. This leaves the door open for a new Spherion owner to establish working relationships and build a strong client base.

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.
