Spherion Staffing: To ignite hiring movement in Madison’s workforce with the Spherion Works Sweepstakes

MADISON, Wis. – Spherion Staffing Madison is adding some fun to hiring — and retaining — its workforce with a creative employment initiative to fill thousands of jobs and fuel the nation’s workforce recovery efforts.

Spherion Works Sweepstakes kicks off July 12 and runs through National Staffing Week (September 13-19) and aims to drive Madison’s unemployed and underemployed to join and stay at the several employment opportunities in the area. A central element to the Spherion Works Sweepstakes is the more than 150 prizes that will be awarded to individuals contracted and working for Spherion. Weekly winners will be randomly selected across the more than 200 Spherion offices nationwide during the campaign. With a wide variety of prizes ranging from GoPro cameras to Nintendo Switches, the campaign will conclude in mid-September with the announcement of the hiring campaign’s grand prize, a new Ford Mustang sports car.

“We’ve been encouraged by the increased amount of job opportunities in the area,” said Diana Schafer, co-owner of Spherion Madison. “As we continue to fill these jobs and see our job seekers find meaningful work, the sweepstakes offer a great chance to reward and honor those who have not yet found their way to a great job

Spherion employees active on assignment in Madison will earn an entry into the Spherion Works Sweepstakes each week they work during the campaign. Several exciting prizes are up for grabs including MacBook Air Laptops, Apple Watches, flat-screen TVs, GoPros, Nintendo Switches, Apple AirPods, Grizzly Coolers, Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and more! Each weekly prize will lead up to the grand prize of a brand-new Ford Mustang sports car. Embracing Spherion’s identity, the majority of prizes will come in its signature orange. Spherion is not affiliated with any of the brands associated with the prizes being offered, nor are these brands sponsoring or endorsing Spherion or the Spherion Works Sweepstakes.

“As we continue to match job seekers with employers, we’ve seen an increase in employment opportunities with potential for upward mobility available,” said Margaret Leitinger, co-owner of Spherion Madison. “With our candidates finding work and staying there, we see these sweepstakes as a way to motivate the workforce to join and stay at the great work opportunities in the area.”

An influx of job opportunities with strong potential for upward mobility are resurfacing, and Spherion is committed to helping client companies optimize productivity and get job seekers back to work. The staffing firm’s 200-plus offices from coast to coast are all filling rewarding positions, as nearly ten million Americans remain out of work due to reasons related to the pandemic. So, “Let’s Get to Work, Madison!”
