ASHLAND, OH - Spherion Staffing celebrated the Grand Opening of their new location on Friday afternoon with a ribbon cutting. While Spherion has held a presence in Ashland for many years, 2019 marks the first year that the Mansfield-based group has had its own building within the city.

"We've been in Ashland for many, many years, but have been looking for the past few years to invest into our own real estate," said Beth DeLaney, Owner of Spherion Staffing. "Just by happenstance, we found the perfect location and were able to remodel it to meet the needs of us and the community. Being part of the community is something that's very important to Spherion. I think what this is allowing us to do is - when you invest in a community, you're able to expand your horizons on non-profits and a lot of volunteer activity. Not only is it going to increase our business with our new site, but I think it's going to increase the way we are looked at in the community."

Not only will Spherion be making a bigger impact with a more serviceable location within the City of Ashland, but the company will also bring more jobs to the area.

"We are looking to expand," DeLaney continued. "We have five full-time people at this location, and with what we do now, I do believe that we'll add an additional 50 jobs to this location within the next month or two."

As the ribbon was cut, local dignitaries and representatives from the Chamber of Commerce said a few words in support of Spherion's new business endeavors.
