The ability to operate as a small business with large corporate backing gives us a substantial strategic advantage over competitors in our local market. Spherion gives us all of the tools necessary to price, promote and market our business in a successful fashion, while allowing us to make the final decisions on how to run it. After being in the business for four years, I believe it is absolutely necessary to have access to the tools and people that Spherion provides. From HR advice and marketing programs, to unemployment and workers compensation, the support we receive from corporate is second to none. Knowing that we have strong corporate support behind our local brand has given us the comfort and confidence to go out and grow our business successfully.
