Spherion Launches IT Staffing and Recruiting Services in Dallas
New Office Meets Dallas’ Growing Demand for Tech-Industry Talent; Accomplished DFW IT Consultant Leads Office’s Staffing and Recruiting Efforts
March 03, 2021 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - Recently named the nation’s number two city for tech professionals*, the sizzling Dallas tech scene now has the support of the country’s leading staffing and recruiting services.
Spherion Staffing has launched in the Dallas market with an office specializing in the IT field. A noted technology services consultant from the area, who also has worked as a leader in local IT staffing, has signed a franchise agreement to open and run a Spherion Staffing office in Dallas. Emmanuel Olanipekun will leverage his experience collaborating closely with local technology executives as well as the regional tech workforce to lead Spherion’s professional IT staffing office at 13601 Preston Road, Suite E2020 in Dallas.
“Dallas is a hub of technology hiring. That’s why I am so bold about the opportunities that are ahead for me and Spherion in the area,” said Olanipekun, whose IT background includes years of experience as a consultant in HR technology integration, focusing on the implementation of the Workday tool for companies such as Truist Bank (formerly SunTrust Banks), Vanguard and Pharmacyclics. “By leveraging my experience as an IT consultant in the HR field with deep knowledge of local tech staffing, I feel extremely confident in my ability to support Dallas client companies while also relating to talented IT professionals to help them find meaningful work.”
As an IT expert himself supporting the staffing needs of other IT executives, Olanipekun is well suited to work strategically with client company CIOs and vice president hiring managers. He’s walked in their shoes, thus having a full understanding of the type of talent voids that may exist in their organizations and how to fill them. Similarly, as a former independent contractor and employee of various IT staffing companies, Olanipekun easily connects with skilled IT professionals to ensure they are staffed in highly rewarding positions. In turn, he knows what it takes to build long-term relationships with both stakeholder groups - employers and IT consultants.
“Emmanuel is the real deal. If I had to make a comparison, having him as part of the Spherion franchise community and in particular as the owner of our Dallas IT staffing office, it’s the equivalent of landing Messi on your team,” said Rebecca Rogers Tijerino, President of Spherion. “There is no one better to support one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the United States.”
With a Master’s Degree in Information Technology and Management from the University of Texas at Dallas, Olanipekun has seen Dallas transform into a world-class tech town in the last few years, now overtaking Silicon Valley in the “2020 Tech Town Index Rankings” released by CompTIA*.
