Successful Spherion Franchisee Opens Additional Recruiting and Staffing Office to Meet Regional Labor Demand 

LAGRANGE, Ga. – Spherion Staffing and Recruiting announced today that a new office will open to serve Troup County at 11 North Lafayette Square in LaGrange. Michael Chalmers, who owns an additional four Spherion offices across Georgia and Alabama, opened the new location on May 9 to fill temporary, temporary-to-hire and direct hire roles across a variety of sectors including administration, light industrial and non-clinical healthcare.

“Throughout my time with Spherion, serving local communities has always been at the heart of our work,” said Chalmers. “Connecting candidates with opportunities that offer them growth potential and fulfillment is incredibly meaningful, and we saw a need for our services in LaGrange. We’re looking forward to creating a lasting impact with both clients and the local workforce.”

Chalmers has more than a decade of experience in staffing industry management and operations. Having recently received recognition at Spherion’s annual conference for top sales growth within the network, he has proven his ability to adapt to a shifting workforce and drive success. Chalmers will continue this strong momentum with the support of a seasoned management team at the LaGrange office.

“Michael ha always been an innovative, passionate member of the Spherion ownership community who deeply values our mission,” said Rebecca Rogers Tijerino, president of Spherion Staffing. “Job seekers in LaGrange are lucky to have such a dedicated team to support them on their career path.”
