WILLIAMSPORT — Spherion Staffing Services, a local recruiting, staffing and workforce solutions provider backed by the resources of a $2 billion global workforce leader, recently honored Williamsport franchise owners Don Ruggery, Sr., Don Ruggery, Jr. and Jay Ruggery with the company’s 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award. Given annually, the Spherion Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes the individual owner or ownership team who achieve significant results across all target growth areas, along with an unparalleled commitment to customer development and community involvement.
In 2016, the Ruggerys and their expert staffing team executed an aggressive growth plan while adapting to changing industry trends to significantly improve their year-over-year sales. Notably, the trio extended its workforce services to a wider base of Pennsylvania job seekers and businesses with several acquisitions, bringing its Keystone State presence to 13 total branches stretching from the Pittsburgh suburbs eastward through York County.
“Every year, the Ruggerys set the standard for the hard work, dedication and exceptional service that define the Spherion culture,” said Sandy Mazur, Spherion Division President. “As 2016 presented the Ruggerys with unanticipated challenges, the team approached each situation with a positive attitude and willingness to put their partners first, and emerged stronger in the process. We are thrilled to honor Don Sr., Don Jr. and Jay with the 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award, and are fully confident that their accomplishments will lead to continued success moving forward.”
The Ruggerys’ commitment to exceptional service also extends to their surrounding communities. Under their leadership, the Spherion Pennsylvania team has expanded its presence through involvement with local business and philanthropic organizations, including area Rotary Club branches, Chambers of Commerce and SHRM chapters, among others.
