Founded in 1946, Spherion has been a leader in the staffing and recruiting industry for more than 75 years. Locally, Spherion Augusta has been serving the CSRA business community since 1987. The company name and logo have changed a few times, but Spherion’s passion for placing the right person with the right business at the right time has never wavered.
Spherion is a national recruiting and staffing enterprise that blends the resources of the world’s largest talent company with the local insights of independent franchise owners, like Angela Swarts, the president of Spherion Augusta.
“I’ve been a part of the Spherion family since 1989 and I purchased the franchise in 1995,” Swarts said. “I can’t imagine doing what I do for any brand but Spherion. It’s the best of both worlds: Having the backing and resources of an international staffing leader while being able to own and manage a business, making decisions that best serve our employees, clients, and community.”
Spherion believes equality, diversity, and inclusion are key drivers of ingenuity and the keys to a high-performing team. By building workforces where all voices are heard, where people can bring their whole selves to work, and where differences are celebrated, Spherion strives to help companies unleash creativity and show employees just how valuable they are.
“I love that our placements enrich the lives of our job seekers and strengthen the businesses across the CSRA,” Swarts said. “I also love that our stories and experiences reflect those we serve every day. When we’re successful together, our investments flow back into the neighborhoods where we live, work, play, and worship.”
Spherion believes that being local means more than matching local talent with employers who have roles to fill. It’s about dedicating our time and resources to improve the communities where we live and work.
Spherion by the numbers:
- 75 years in business
- 39 states with franchise offices
- 75,000+ employees put to work each year
- 4,000+ clients helped each year
- 200 franchise offices across the U.S. (and growing)
Spherion Augusta offers a broad variety of staffing services, whether a company needs someone on a short- or long-term temporary basis to providing top talent for an organization’s full-time job openings. Swarts says Spherion Augusta also offers comprehensive workforce solutions to companies who strategically outsource a percentage of their workforce or even entire departments and functions.
“In short, we take a consultative approach so we can better understand each company’s unique needs and workforce challenges and design customized solutions to drive the desired result,” she said.
