BirdDogHR Joins Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Businesses

DES MOINES, Iowa – August 12, 2015 – BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for the construction, engineering and skilled trades industries, has been named to Inc. magazine's list of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America. BirdDogHR was ranked #3274 on the exclusive 2015 Inc. 5000 list. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America’s independent entrepreneurs.

Complete information on this year’s Inc. 5000 list can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The list features a profile for each company and is searchable according to numerous criteria, including industry, city, state, region and year founded.

The Inc. 5000 is an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list and catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as smaller hyper-growth companies. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy. This is the first year that BirdDogHR has been named to the Inc. 5000.

“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”

“It is a great honor to be recognized by Inc. magazine,” says Todd Skokan, President and CEO of BirdDogHR. “Our strong growth, financial performance and overall momentum are made possible by committed employees, a dynamic customer base, a comprehensive and straightforward product and services offering and a distinctive and scalable business model that has proven to be successful.”
