True Hire Ranks on Inc. 5000 for Third Time

For the 3rd Time, True Hire Earned a Ranking on the Inc. 5000, Considered One of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America with Three-Year Revenue Growth of 121 Percent

NEW YORK, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Ohio background check company True Hire is No. 3996 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.

“We’re super excited that we’re selected again to be on the Inc. 5000,” said True Hire CEO Stephanie Froelich. “We’re always striving to do the best we can for all our clients. We’re always increasing our service and trying to be the best background check company around.”

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.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” said 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.”

True Hire has been in business for 26 years and since 1995 has provided high-quality background checks for both corporations and non-profit organizations regionally and nationwide, but more than that, they provide peace of mind, safety, and protection to these entities.

The team at True Hire understands that businesses need better quality hires to reduce employee turnover and non-profits need trustworthy volunteers to protect their most vulnerable community members.

Being listed on the Inc. 5000 demonstrates True Hire’s expertise and authority in the background check industry which translates into exceptional service and new opportunities for clients. Because of True Hire’s innovative strategy and perseverance throughout the past several years, the Canton-area background check company was able to more than double revenue from 2018 to 2021 despite the many obstacles that arose due to the pandemic.

“Our marketing and sales teams worked really hard as a joint effort to make sure that we were constantly increasing our services offered to our current client base,” said Froelich. “We also continued working on partnerships and integrations with other businesses, so that we could always keep moving forward by signing new clients in addition to accommodating current clients, making sure they both had the best services we could offer.”

True Hire offers flexible background screening and drug testing solutions for corporations in the quick serve restaurant industry, as well as the hospitality and insurance industries. Regarding the non-profit sector, True Hire focuses on serving the education and healthcare industries, but caters to a variety of sport, public service, youth development, religious, and community organizations.

Above all, True Hire believes the background screening process should be easy, simple and painless for both their clients and their clients’ candidates.

True Hire is certified by the Professional Background Screening Association which holds the company to the highest standards and utmost integrity in the screening industry. In addition to being ranked on the Inc. 5000 list for three years, True Hire has also won the Weatherhead 100 award four times, naming True Hire as one of the fastest-growing companies in northeast Ohio. The Weatherhead 100 is an annual award given by the Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management to Northeast Ohio’s exceptional entrepreneurs who lead the way to economic success in the region.
