The Hiring Group, a technical staffing and recruiting firm with offices in Greenville and Atlanta, has been ranked No. 130 on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

“We could not be more thrilled to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list, and it is a testament to the dedication and effort this team has invested since we started in 2014,” said Brooks Israel, co-founder of THG, which serves clients throughout the United States.

THG showed a three-year revenue growth of 3,055 percent, and THG’s 2017 revenue was $3.6 million. Accounting for 664,095 jobs the past three years, the aggregate revenue of the Inc. 5000 was more than $206.2 billion in 2017.

“We built The Hiring Group because we knew there was a better way to treat the technical professional community in the staffing space,” said Chris Yarrow, co-founder of THG. “By doing so, we’ve created the only true retention-focused technical-staffing firm in the Southeast. Inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list is certainly validation that the risk we took is worth the reward.”

Ranking of the 2018 Inc. 5000 is based on percentage of revenue growth comparing 2014 with 2018. The listed companies are U.S. based, privately held, for profit, and independent. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, and Zillow first gained national exposure on the Inc. 5000 list.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor-in-chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
