LOS ANGELES, Aug. 27, 2018 — GQR announced today that Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) have recognized them on the 2018 Fastest-Growing U.S. Staffing Firms list, claiming the No. 2 spot.
The list represents staffing firms that realized at least $1 million in revenue in 2013 and have a compound annual revenue growth (CAGR) of at least 15% between 2013 and 2017. The average CAGR for the top ten companies was an astounding 97.8%.
“It is an honor to be recognized by SIA as one of the Fastest-Growing Staffing Firms in the U.S.,” GQR co-founder Hugo Sugden said. “Our journey, the track record that we’ve established and the trajectory that we’ve set ourselves on, is a rare one, and the source of our achievements and one of our core differentiators continues to be an extraordinary commitment and focused efforts of our exceptional people.”
This year 94 companies qualified for inclusion on SIA’s annual list. Of these, seven of the firms in the top 10 offer healthcare staffing, and nearly 42% of firms on the list cited healthcare staffing as one of the primary segments they serve. Information Technology (IT) fell in second place (36%) for the most-common central segment for staffing firms on the fastest-growing list – a trend that held steady with the previous year.
“It’s an incredible accomplishment for GQR to earn acknowledgment as a fastest-growing staffing firm in the U.S. and the top within our core STEM specialisms,” said Simon Kenyon, GQR’s Global Director of Operations. “This achievement recognizes the continued growth of the business and is a testament to all of those whose hard work, collaboration and unique ideas have facilitated GQR’s success. It demonstrates the value we bring to our clients and candidates and further illustrates the progressive scope of our human capital solutions.”
Additionally, GQR recently ranked No. 1,127 on Inc. magazine’s 37th annual Inc. 5000 list, marking the third consecutive year GQR has appeared on the list. Forbes also recognized GQR on its 2018 list of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms, ranking it #201 out of the 14,500 nominations received. Other notable achievements include a #1 ranking from LinkedIn® on their annual Most Socially Engaged list, and a top ranking from HFM Week and CTA Intelligence for hedge fund and quant recruitment.
