Nor are the temporary employees of non-participating Spherion franchise offices.
Entries from prospective winners will be randomly chosen from all eligible employees as follows: A weekly report will be pulled of all active temporary employees employed by Spherion or Spherion franchisees; Reports will be downloaded and consolidated into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet document each week with chronological numbers for each eligible employee; Winners for each prize will be chosen through a random on-line generator at RANDOM.ORG and will be matched to the corresponding number on the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet; There will be two (2) alternate Contest winner back-ups for each prize in the event the original winner is deemed ineligible or fails to claim the prize.
Each eligible employee will be entered into the drawing for that week’s prizes, receiving one (1) entry for that week. However, for the Regional Grand Prize drawing, each eligible employee will receive an entry for each week employed by Spherion or its franchisees during the Contest period, up to a maximum of six (6) entries. By way of example, if an eligible employee has been employed by Spherion for five (5) weeks when the Regional Grand Prize drawing occurs, that employee will receive five (5) entries for the Grand Prize drawing. Employees who have converted to the payroll of the client to which the employee was assigned will remain eligible after conversion for the Grand Prize drawing only. Converted employees will not otherwise be eligible to win any prizes after conversion. Each winner will be limited to one (1) prize during the Contest Period.
Prospective winner entries will be confirmed by the corresponding Spherion franchisee employer as follows: The franchise owner will receive an email notification of the prospective winner two (2) weeks prior to the public announcement of the winner; The franchisee or their designated contact will confirm the prospective winner is eligible based on the criteria outlined in these rules. Confirmation of eligibility will be completed via a shared Google Document which will include the electronic signature of the franchisee or their designated contact. If the prospective winner is not confirmed eligible, the first back-up winner will be next in line with notification of eligibility in the same manner. If the first back-up winner is not confirmed eligible, the second back-up winner will be next in line with notification of eligibility in the same manner. If the second back-up winner is not confirmed eligible, Spherion will continue to secure back-up prospective winners until one is confirmed eligible. Chosen eligible winners may not transfer their prize to another person or party for the purposes of this Contest.
Any determination made by Spherion regarding the eligibility and selection of eligible and final winners shall be final and binding.
