Staffing / Commercial Model
Spherion's general staffing model
is available in many mid-sized cities and towns as
well as some rural areas. Spherion commercial office franchisees
primarily support light industrial and administrative positions
and, in some markets, professional staffing and recruiting as well.
General staffing market geographies typically cover single or
multiple counties. Spherion general staffing office locations are
most commonly located in shopping centers anchored by a landmark
like a grocery store or bank. The general staffing model always
starts with one office. However, franchisees often have the
opportunity to open multiple offices to provide better coverage of
assigned or expanded territory.
Spherion and the
entire staffing industry is enjoying robust growth thanks to a
rebounding post-pandemic economy and shifts in the labor market due
to employees rethinking their professional priorities and making
the leap into new, more fulfilling lines of work. Staffing Industry
Analysts, the global advisor on staffing and workforce
solutions, predicts 4% growth
for the overall staffing industry in 2022.
Spherion is outpacing that projection and expects the demand for
flexibility and scalability by clients to fuel growth through the
rest of the decade. Our strong candidate-client relationships and
exceptional service backed by the resources of the global leader in
human resources allows Spherion to cater to the ever-changing
demands of America's workforce.
