NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Inc. revealed that Shiftsmart, the leading labor management platform serving the modern workforce, was ranked in the Top 50 in New York (at #44) in its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The company was also ranked #58 in the software category, and #541 overall. The Inc. list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“It’s an honor for Shiftsmart to be recognized in the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row, and ranked in the top 50 in New York,” said Aakash Kumar, CEO and Founder, Shiftsmart. “We credit our high growth with the enormous demand by enterprises to find hourly workers during a massive skills shortage in this country, as well as the growing desire for such workers to find increased flexibility in their work schedules and employment options.”
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
