About Spherion

A dynamic staffing agency on a mission to drive careers, grow businesses, and better the communities we call home

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. 

The average Spherion office generated more than $6 million in revenue and $1.3 million in gross margin in 2023.* Spherion owners benefit from the stability of protected, exclusive territories.

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.
