During this challenging time for recruitment and retention, Spherion took a bold step, launching the Spherion Works Sweepstakes campaign to motivate employees to return to work with 150 big ticket prizes -plus the grand prize of a Ford Mustang GT. We recently hit the brakes on our ten-week run of the campaign, culminating during National Staffing Employee Week (Sept. 13 – 19), an annual celebration of the millions of individuals employed by U.S. staffing agencies. As a result of this campaign, our offices stood out from the competition by helping nearly 15,000 job seekers find and stay at meaningful career opportunities and igniting a hiring movement throughout the nation.
“We’ve filled thousands of positions for our client companies this summer,” said Rebecca Rogers Tijerino, President of Spherion. “Our offices not only met the increased demand for jobs nationwide but also offered some extra summer fun to our employees by celebrating their commitment to work with weekly prizes. Building on this momentum, we’ll be placing thousands of employees in new career opportunities during the fall and holiday season.”
Michael P., an employee at our office in Dayton, Ohio, was awarded the grand prize of our months-long campaign -- a new 2021 Ford Mustang GT. A military veteran, Michael has worked for Spherion since 2016, holding various assignments at businesses in the community. In his five years with Spherion, he has worked over 6,300 hours and has never missed an unexcused day of work or been late to a shift, receiving rave reviews from both the local Spherion leadership team and its client contacts. Michael credits his work ethic to his dad, and has passed down that same appreciation for work to his 3 children and 4 grandchildren.
“I’m honored and beyond grateful to be the winner of the Spherion Works Sweepstakes grand prize. As a car fanatic, I can’t wait to be driving around in a brand-new Mustang GT,” said Michael, who earned entries for each of the 10 weeks he worked as a warehouse team member over the course of the sweepstakes. “I’ve worked with Spherion for 5 years now, and the support I receive from the entire team is outstanding ⎼ it truly feels like a family. Growing up my dad instilled a strong work ethic in me that I’ve brought to my work with Spherion. My dad recently passed away, and I know that this car is a sign that he is looking down on me and is proud of the work I continue to put in every day.”
Throughout the sweepstakes, Spherion employees active on assignment earned an entry into the Spherion Works Sweepstakes for each week worked. Several exciting prizes were awarded across the country including MacBook Air Laptops, Apple Watches, flat-screen TVs, GoPros, Nintendo Switches, Apple AirPods, Grizzly Coolers, Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and more! Embracing Spherion’s identity, the majority of prizes were in its signature orange, including the 2021 Mustang GT.*
