It’s award season at Spherion! Each year at our Spherion National Meeting, we recognize and reward the achievements of our franchise owners who, alongside their dedicated teams, work tirelessly to live up to our vision: to drive careers, grow businesses, and better the communities we call home. 

This year’s awards were even more special—the local Spherion office teams persevered through a tumultuous 2020 to stay true to the vision and get people to work. 

From all of us at Spherion, we thank each of our owners and their teams for an amazing and unforgettable year.
