Year Up Professional Resources (YUPRO) Named on SIA’s 2022 List of Fastest-Growing Staffing Firms

SIA’s Annual List Recognizes U.S. Staffing Firms That Achieved Significant Organic Growth Over Five Years

September 28, 2022 — BOSTON – Year Up Professional Resources (YUPRO), the nation’s leading Opportunity Talent placement firm, was recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) as one of the 2022 Fastest-Growing U.S. Staffing Firms. 

To qualify for the Fastest-Growing U.S. Staffing Firms list, companies must have posted a minimum of $1 million in U.S. revenue in 2017 and have had a compound annual growth rate of at least 15% from 2017-2021. 

YUPRO, a talent placement firm serving individuals from traditionally untapped talent pools who have historically lacked access to economic opportunity, stability, and mobility, was ranked 35 among the 122 firms that made the 2022 fastest-growing U.S. staffing firms list. The company reported a revenue gain of $23.8 million in 2021 and a compound annual growth rate of 44% between 2017-2021. 

“We are honored to be ranked among the industry’s fastest growing staffing firms – the Opportunity Talent pool allows YUPRO’s expert team to partner with training provider partners and clients to close the Opportunity Divide,” said Michelle Sims, CEO of YUPRO. 

YUPRO’s growth can be attributed to its wage-based learning apprenticeship program where they partner with some of the largest Fortune 500 companies in the country, aligning with building equity and inclusiveness in today’s workforce. The apprenticeship program helps  bridge the skills and experience gaps for organizations.

“The 2022 List of Fastest-Growing Staffing Firms displays a masterclass in perseverance. Emerging from the pandemic with organic growth is a true achievement and testament to the staffing industry’s strength, even in the most turbulent of times,” said SIA President Barry Asin. “Our list of staffing firms more than doubled this year and SIA is honored to present these resilient staffing firms to the world. A huge congratulations to our 2022 honorees!”

The September/October 2022 issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine highlights interviews with leaders from the top 10 fastest-growing firms.
