Local Entrepreneur Opens Recruiting and Staffing Office to Meet Regional Labor Demand 


DENVER – Spherion Staffing and Recruiting announced today the opening of its newest office in Colorado, located at 7400 E. Orchard Road in Greenwood Village. Under the ownership of local entrepreneur Dr. JuliAnna Stone, the office opened on March 14 and will focus on filling temporary, temporary-to-hire and direct hire roles in sectors including administrative, customer service, manufacturing, fulfillment, distribution and logistics and non-clinical healthcare.

“I’ve spent my life seeking personal and professional opportunities that better the lives of those around me,” said Stone. “When I met with the leadership team at Spherion, I saw that same passion for helping others in them, and I was sold. Spherion will fill a need for businesses and job seekers in the greater Denver area who are looking for a partner that has the experience, knowledge and drive to get them where they need to be. I look forward to serving the community alongside my brilliant team.”

Prior to business ownership with Spherion, Stone spent a majority of her career in higher education working as a professor, facilitator and business development strategist for The University of Phoenix and the College for Financial Planning. After finding herself at a crossroad in her career, Stone founded Career Life Academy, Inc., a company that specializes in career transition, personal branding and recruiting. There, she spent several years helping bring greater speed and convenience to her clients’ career transition process. Stone plans to leverage her expansive background as well as her recruiting, career coaching and personal branding skills to help match quality candidates with top employment opportunities in the greater Denver area. 

Joining Stone at Spherion Staffing Denver are several key team members, including Jeff Stone as the Safety and Compliance Officer; Erica Reinhard as the Operations Manager and Marketing Coordinator; Jaqueline Susman as the Director of Market Development and Senior Recruiter; Jan Payne as the Director of Safety and Compliance and Senior Recruiter; and Nicole Ryan as the Operations Director and Senior Recruiter. With combined experience in recruiting, education, operations and more, the Spherion Staffing team in The greater Denver area is well-equipped to support both businesses and job seekers locally.

“JuliAnna and her team have an incredible wealth of knowledge that they’re bringing to the greater Denver area workforce,” said Rebecca Rogers Tijerino, president of Spherion Staffing. “I’m so looking forward to seeing their growth with Spherion and the impact they will have on the clients and candidates they serve.”
