“Excellence, because we outwork and outshine all of our competitors.”

When asked about what makes Spherion unique and different from similar businesses and organizations, Ekene’s response was that of its work culture.
“Spherion embraces a work culture that values diversity, innovation and service excellence,” Ekene said.
Joining the chamber
League City holds a special place in Spherion’s heart due to it being the location of their Galveston County office. Ekene describes the League City community as a fun one, because of the “great people and great businesses” in the city. As one might imagine, the location has enjoyed its time in Galveston County as a member of the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce.
“Upon opening our office in 2019, our Spherion corporate team in Atlanta encouraged us to join the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce and it was one of the best decisions we made,” Ekene said.
Ekene says that the greatest benefit of being a member of the chamber is the relationships they build and the lifetime bonds and new friendships that come with such new relationships.
“Your organization should join your local chamber of commerce because there is strength in numbers and in order to be successful in business you must have supporters,” Ekene said. “The chamber will allow you to gain trust and build a solid foundation.”
With the new year having begun, Spherion is continuing its dedication to helping businesses and job seekers alike thrive with success. Ekene shed light on her location’s biggest goal of 2021.
“We plan to put more than 700 people to work this year,” Ekene said. “We plan on connecting with lots of businesses and meeting new candidates daily.”
Ekene gave her company’s promise to their clients, promising to get to know their clients’ businesses and the talent that will keep them operating at peak performance.
“Acting as an extension of your HR team, we will source, recruit, interview and hire candidates that fit the unique requirements of your organization,” Ekene said. “We will respond promptly to staffing needs and proactively offer solutions that address challenges you’re facing. You will only be presented with top candidates and Spherion will assist with every facet of the employment process. We will follow-up regularly to ensure the candidates we placed meet your satisfaction and performance goals. And, if you are ever unsatisfied with a talent placement, we will resolve the issue quickly and provide a suitable replacement. We are your staffing team and your satisfaction is our greatest goal!”
