Engage PEO Recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the Country for the Second Consecutive Year

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – August 16, 2017 – Engage PEO, a professional employer organization providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses across the U.S., continues to demonstrate its industry leadership by being named one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. on Inc. magazine’s 36th Annual Inc. 5000 list. Engage earned the 741st spot on the list following its 127th ranking in 2016.

This is the second year the company is included on the list, which represents the most comprehensive look at America’s independent entrepreneurs. Over the course of the last four years, no PEO has grown faster.

“Engage’s presence on the Inc. 5000 list for yet another year is an example of how a business model centered upon putting clients first and delivering beyond expectations naturally yields sustained, positive results,” said Jay Starkman, CEO of Engage PEO. “Our growth is just part of the story - our team of experts remains committed to helping small and mid-sized businesses nationwide navigate the increasingly complex HR landscape, so they can focus on growing their businesses.”

According to Inc., the companies represented achieved a combined three-year average growth of 481 percent, created more than 619,500 jobs in the past three years, and generated revenue of $206 billion.

Engage recently received an additional distinction from the Internal Revenue Service that recognizes the company as one of the first professional employer organizations in the U.S. to earn “Certified Professional Employer Organization” status. This new designation ensures greater benefits for small and mid-sized businesses such as tax advantages and financial protections.
