NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HiredScore, the Human Resources Intelligence platform leveraging artificial intelligence to transform enterprise talent acquisition and human resources teams, today announced it ranked 132 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 27th year. HiredScore grew 1030% during this period.
HiredScore's Chief Executive Officer and founder, Athena Karp, credits a 1,030% revenue growth to acute executive-level awareness that the most important investment an organization can make is in its workforce; retaining employees, future-proofing, hiring for quality, and improving workforce diversity. She said, "the biggest shift from when we started a decade ago is that it's not just the 5-10% of executive leaders that are innovating who realize the impact that technology can have on supporting their people and work challenges. Today, nearly every company around the world is asking how and which technology solutions can best accelerate these goals while ensuring that efficiency and effectiveness don't come at the risk of fairness and equality, which solutions like ours can uniquely provide."
"Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception," said Paul Silverglate, vice-chair, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology sector leader. "In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success."
"The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across health care, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500 is more important than ever," said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and industry leader for technology, media, and telecommunications within Deloitte's audit & assurance practice. "These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology."
