Spherion Staffing Services franchise opportunities provide individuals a chance to join an exciting and rewarding industry. For over 70 years, we’ve placed millions of workers in flexible, temp-to-hire and direct-hire jobs spanning nearly every industry and skill set. For seven consecutive years, Spherion has been named a world-class franchise opportunity by the Franchise Research Institute. What does this mean? Spherion franchisees confidentially participated in a third-party, unbiased survey to gain an inside perspective of what it is like to be a franchise owner for the company. Spherion achieved exceptional scores across the board! Our franchisees have a long history of contributing their talent, commitment and passion to building our brand, strengthening the system and enjoying the satisfaction and rewards that come from being part of a winning team. Our company and our industry have stood the test of time. Note: by 2011 all company units were sold due to corporate restructuring.
