OAK BROOK, Illinois
247Headhunting announced today that it joins Inc magazine’s prestigious 2016 list of America’s fastest growing private companies. The company ranked # 2626, with more than 136% growth over three years.
The company, a leader in delivering global support for staffing and recruitment organizations, credits its success to a culture of continuous improvement and its ability to evolve in step with the changing market. “More than a decade ago, 247Headhunting led the first generation of offshore business process outsourcing services focused on recruitment organizations,” said Casey Godfrey, VP of Sales for North America. The company offered candidate recruiting and sourcing support services to companies based in the US, and later expanded services into the UK and Canada.
“A little over 5 years ago we recognized a growing gap between what our clients needed, and what was being offered by our industry. The competitive demands on our clients were increasing and we knew we could provide real solutions that would show quick ROI.” The company drew from its strengths – innovative technologies, deep knowledge of the talent market, and strong processes – and invested in growing highly-skilled internal teams that were fully engaged in client outcomes.
Godfrey explained that as a result, 247 grew to become a true partner to its clients.
“We’re able to advise our clients on how to get more from their talent investments, sharing data and insights that are unique to their team and process. We expanded our services to include database management, and we opened an IT development center to serve the needs of our clients. And, we expanded our proprietary software tools to give clients real-time web and mobile access to their account activity, via our secure client platform. We like to say that we’re driving the next generation of talent industry BPO services, and it’s gratifying to see our achievement recognized by this Inc. placement.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
A partner to the talent industry for more than a decade, 247’s singular goal is to bring revenue-boosting efficiency and technical ingenuity to staffing organizations. Led by a team of industry pioneers who developed and built leading job boards, social recruiting platforms and RPO solutions, 247 combines the cost-saving value of offshoring with technologies, data and resources that enable tomorrow’s growth — whether we’re finding the perfect candidate or building the perfect app.
