employdrive named to 2019 Inc. 5000 list of nation’s fastest growing companies
Payroll and human capital management provider and adviser for staffing industry ranks among top 12 percent of listed companies
Employdrive, a leading provider of payroll and human capital management solutions for staffing companies, has landed on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing companies. Ranked No. 560, the company posted 794 percent revenue growth between 2015 and 2018.
“It is an honor to be named to the Inc. 5000 and to stand among so many other well-regarded firms both locally and around the country,” says Jeff Jefferson, co-founder of employdrive. “We credit our rapid growth to our amazing customers playing in a strong and growing niche market: staffing. When they grow, we follow. Employdrive knows staffing, and the results are proof.”
Founded in 2014 by staffing veterans Jefferson and co-founder Sean Harrington, employdrive is the fastest-growing payroll outsourcing services firm in the nation, processing over $1 billion in staffing industry payroll. The simple, comprehensive solution helps companies contain costs, reduces the time required to administer benefits, streamlines the ACA reporting process, and allows for employee self-service to meet the demands of today’s workforce.
“We understand the challenges staffing companies face with payroll more than any of the big, national vendors. We stay flexible, always-on, and responsive to clients’ needs as both a software provider and a trusted advisor to get the job done,” Harrington says. “Payroll is one of the most complex components of operating a staffing firm, and the environment is only becoming more challenging. We have found that the most successful way to support this industry is to focus exclusively on the niche and deliver boutique level service to each client.”
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says 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 Oct. 10-12, 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.
Serving as both a trusted adviser and solutions provider, employdrive addresses the many challenges staffing companies face with payroll and human capital management. Unlike national payroll providers, the employdrive solution integrates seamlessly into staffing companies to address their specific backoffice needs, including payroll processing, benefits administration, robust reporting, ACA compliance, and better employee self-service. Employdrive’s founders have a combined 40 years of experience in the recruiting and staffing software industries. Prior to employdrive, the founders developed timeshEASY, the only staffing-specific software for timesheets, expenses, invoicing, commissions, and onboarding. TimeshEASY was acquired by Bullhorn in 2013.
