BOSTON, Aug. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Inc. revealed that HqO is No. 75 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The 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.
“HqO was established to bring people together,” said Chase Garbarino, Co-Founder and CEO at HqO. “In the four years since founding our company, the way people work has undergone a tremendous transformation. The physical workplace and those responsible for it need to catch up to these changes, and HqO has been proud to help support that evolution. We are committed to making the workplace a place people want to go rather than have to go.”
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. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
Companies trust HqO to help them maneuver through the ever-evolving workplace landscape, by focusing on optimizing their workplace investments, keeping employees engaged, and enhancing their company cultures to attract and retain top talent.
