Spherion Corporation today announced that the company has changed its name to SFN Group, Inc. The name change will become effective immediately and the company’s common stock will continue to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange and trade under its current ticker symbol: “SFN.” The company operates a family of specialized businesses, including:
Technisource, Tatum, Mergis, Todays Office Professionals, SourceRight Solutions and Spherion Staffing Services, throughout its nearly 600 offices in the United States and Canada.
Commenting on the name change, SFN Group President and CEO Roy Krause noted, “The SFN Group name clearly defines each of our businesses under one unified company. Our new name also more accurately reflects our evolution to a strategic workforce solutions provider. It reinforces our commitment to provide our customers with specialized services to help them more effectively acquire, deploy, and manage the workforce. As our breadth of services, the industries in which we operate and customer base all continue to expand, each of our specialized businesses will be better positioned to strengthen their individual brand equity, while benefiting from the operating efficiencies and world-class technology of a $1.8 billion parent company dedicated to service excellence. This is a very exciting time for our company as we continue to position ourselves for accelerated growth in an improving economy.”
