GrapeTree Named on SIA's 2022 List of Fastest Growing Staffing Firms

For the 8th year in a row, GrapeTree is named on SIA’s Annual List of Fastest-Growing US Staffing Firms. This year, GrapeTree ranked #75 with a compound annual growth rate of 27 percent.


Milford, Iowa, September 23, 2022 – GrapeTree Medical Staffing announced it has been named to the 2022 List of Fastest-Growing Staffing Firms. Published annually by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, the list ranks US firms by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for staffing revenue over five years.


“It is a true honor for GrapeTree to receive the SIA award eight years in a row,” said Steve Heeg, CEO of GrapeTree Medical Staffing. “Awards like this one wouldn’t be possible without the integrity, accountability and hard work of our healthcare professionals, our clients, suppliers, and our entire corporate staff. I am so proud of our entire team and look forward to our continuous growth.”


There were 122 staffing firms included on the 2022 ranking, and the median CAGR for all firms listed is 30.3%. To be considered one of the Fastest-Growing Staffing Firms, companies must meet a minimum revenue threshold of $1 million in 2017 and have had a CAGR of at least 15% between 2017 and 2021. The Braff Group, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisory firm, sponsored this year’s list. Each staffing firm is profiled online at fastestgrowing.staffingindustry.com.


“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!”
