This Sweepstakes is sponsored by Spherion Staffing, LLC (“Spherion”).
This Sweepstakes and any participation in this Sweepstakes is not an employment agreement and is not a promise of continued employment with Spherion or any Spherion franchisee or any of their affiliated entities.
The odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entrants.
To be eligible to enter and/or win the Spherion 2022 Spherion Works Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”), you must be 18 years of age or older at the time of entry; a legal resident of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia; and a temporary employee of Spherion or a participating Spherion franchisee and in “good standing.” Each eligible temporary employee will be referred to as a “Contestant.”
Good standing is defined as: Currently an active temporary employee of Spherion or a participating Spherion franchisee (temporary or temporary-to-permanent) on date of entry and date of award of any prize; Has complied with all explicit obligations of employment, while not being subject to any form of sanction, suspension or disciplinary censure; Has not tendered oral or written notice of intent to resign or retire effective as of a date on or before the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period or the awarding of any prize; And has no pending investigations or lawsuits that would affect one’s employment status (based on local, state and federal government laws).
Conditions not related to “good standing” include: Being late or missing work that is less than the defined minimum expectations of the job; Perceptions based on an opinion of an individual versus facts based on employment criteria; Preconceived opinions based on past experiences or history prior to or during the start date of the Sweepstakes.
Employees, representatives, consultants, subcontractors, and agents of Randstad or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates (other than Spherion), of Spherion or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates (other than the temporary employees), or the temporary employees of non-participating Spherion Franchisees, as well as their spouses and dependents, are not eligible to enter this Sweepstakes or to win any Sweepstakes prizes.
Entries and Winner Selection:
A weekly report will be pulled of all active temporary employees employed by Spherion or participating Spherion franchisees and will be downloaded and consolidated into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet document each week with chronological numbers assigned to each eligible Contestant. 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 three (3) alternate Sweepstakes winner back-ups for each prize in the event the original winner is deemed ineligible or fails to claim the prize.
Each eligible Contestant will be entered into the drawing for that week’s prizes, receiving one (1) entry for that week. However, for the Grand Prize drawing, each eligible Contestant will receive an entry for each week employed by Spherion or its participating franchisees during the Sweepstakes Period, up to a maximum of six (6) entries. By way of example, if an eligible Contestant has been employed by Spherion for four (4) weeks when the Grand Prize drawing occurs, that Contestant will receive four (4) entries for the Grand Prize drawing. Contestants who have converted to the payroll of the client to which the Contestant was assigned prior to the end of the Sweepstakes Period, will remain eligible after conversion for only the Grand Prize drawing and will no longer be eligible for any weekly prizes. Converted employees will not otherwise be eligible to win any other prizes except for the grand prize after conversion.
Each winner will be limited to one (1) weekly prize during the Sweepstakes Period, with the exception of the Grand Prize, for which winners will be eligible as set forth above.
If the prospective winner is employed by a participating Spherion franchisee, he or she will be confirmed as follows: The participating franchise owner will receive an email notification of the prospective winner approximately two (2) weeks prior to the public announcement of the winner, and the participating franchisee or their designated contact will confirm the prospective winner is eligible based on the criteria outlined in these Official Rules. Confirmation of eligibility will be completed via a shared Google Document which will include the electronic signature of the participating 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, the third back-up winner will be next in line with notification of eligibility in the same manner. If the third back-up winner is not 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 Sweepstakes.
Any determination made by Spherion regarding the eligibility and selection of eligible and final winners shall be final and binding.

Sweepstakes winners will be notified by a telephone call, text, and/or email from the Contestant’s employer specifying that the winner must contact a specific official at their local Spherion franchisee branch location to confirm acceptance of the prize.
Notification is to determine if the winner is able and willing to accept the Sweepstakes rules and the prize under the terms and conditions set forth herein. Each winner is required to respond to a specific official at their local participating Spherion franchisee branch location in person, by a telephone call, text, and/or email within three (3) calendar days of the first attempted notification. If the prospective winner fails to contact that Spherion official and respond as required or is otherwise unavailable to receive the notification for whatever reason, such that no response is received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the third (3rd) calendar day following the first attempted contact by email, telephone call or text to the prospective winner, then any right or interest of the prospective winner in the Sweepstakes prize or this Sweepstakes shall be promptly forfeited. No other notification will be required to be made by Spherion to the prospective winner that fails to respond for any reason, and the selected prospective winner shall forfeit their rights and interest. If the prospective winner has forfeited their interest in the prize and this Sweepstakes, an alternate winner selected through a random drawing will then be declared the “winner” of that specific prize by Spherion, as described above.
