NEW YORK, August 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today revealed that JazzHR has once again been named to its annual Inc. 5000 list, the ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
"JazzHR is delighted to be recognized once again by Inc. for our growth within the SMB recruiting market," said JazzHR CEO, Pete Lamson. "Our team is laser focused on providing an easy-to-use and affordable solution for small to mid-sized businesses. We're honored to see our results validated by Inc Magazine's annual award."
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows compelling growth when compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved a three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
"The companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success," said Inc. Editor-in-Chief James Ledbetter. "There's no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities."
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
