ATLANTA, Nov. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Recruiting and staffing leader Spherion Staffing Services today announced its own staffing need: the company is looking to add 30+ franchise owners in metro markets across the U.S. As the job market and demand for staffing services heat up, Spherion is expanding into 18 new metro markets, each of which will have multiple franchising opportunities. Spherion franchise owners benefit from great income potential, relatively low-cost investment and market-leading training & support.
New markets in need of Spherion franchise owners include: Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, OH, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Portland, OR, Raleigh, Riverside/San Bernardino, CA, San Diego and Seattle.
"This is a hot market for our franchise owners with the lowest unemployment rate the U.S. has seen in 50 years and companies increasingly relying on staffing service to find the right mix of talent," said Spherion Division President Sandy Mazur. "If you are based in one of the 18 markets where we are expanding, you could be our next franchise owner to help your local community attract top talent. You will have lots of support, as Spherion leads the industry in setting our local franchise owners up for success."
Spherion has more than six decades of franchising experience and has been recognized as a "World-Class Franchise" by the Franchise Research Institute (FRI) for 12 consecutive years. The company provides the following services and benefits for franchise owners:
- Extensive training, which includes a structured 232-hour on-boarding curriculum consisting of web-based, calls and in-person learning followed with two weeks of on-site training, monthly calls and learning sessions and an online University for continuous learning opportunities
- Marketing support to power local business opportunities
- Access to innovative technology tools that help with targeting and sourcing talent
- National support and resources that come from being part of the world's second largest workforce solutions company with $22 billion in annual revenue
- The ability to be hands-on, active owners with strong corporate support
In addition to our marketing, technical and professional support, Spherion funds the most expensive component of the staffing business – the temporary employee payroll. Spherion makes the weekly payroll, handles associated federal, state and local taxes and manages the invoicing and collections process. This helps owners reduce ongoing cash requirements, so they can concentrate on developing and growing their business.
"We have been in the recruiting and staffing business for 70+ years and have learned what it takes to succeed in the industry," said Mazur. "The best people to ask about the benefits of becoming a Spherion franchise owner are our existing franchise owners, with whom we can connect any interested potential future owners."
