And that makes six!
For the sixth year in a row, Careerminds has ranked as one of 2019’s fastest-growing, privately-held businesses in the Philadelphia region by Philadelphia 100 and the Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia. Careerminds ranked 61st.
Thanks to our amazing staff, clients, and participants, Careerminds has developed into the best, most cutting-edge outplacement provider in the region.
“Over the last 10 years Careerminds has experienced growth every year since inception and in 2014 received its first recognition as Philadelphia top 100 fastest-growing companies,” Careerminds Founder and CEO Raymond Lee said of the award.
“We’ve received this award every year since then and I’m happy to say that today we’re featured again in the Philadelphia 100 for the sixth year in a row. We’re also recognized this year in the Inc 5000. Seeing this growth as an outplacement company in the best economy in over 40 years is a testament to the talented employees and coaches who make up the Careerminds family.”
Lee also stated that he is excited about the coming year’s future growth, as well, which will see team expansion internationally in both Canada and the UK.
The Philadelphia 100 rankings are based on revenue growth from the previous 3 years. We owe our continued success to the hard work of our staff and our ability to stay current with workforce trends as they happen. These two factors have helped us grow substantially over the last several years, demonstrating the need for better outplacement services that stay current with the ever-changing technological landscape of the process.
At Careerminds, we strive to solve these issues so that independent HR departments don’t have to, making us strong strategic partners to our clients.
These innovative approaches to workforce planning, transitioning, and development have been at the forefront of our success. Each and every day we push the limits of what an outplacement provider can do for their clients.
“It’s extremely exciting for our whole company to be honored with a spot on the Philly 100 for the sixth year in a row,” said Careerminds Vice President of Sales, Katie Lawrence.
“We are an organization that does what we say we will do, and our continued growth in both revenue and client acquisition, not to mention our industry-leading 98.5% overall participant satisfaction, are a testament to the hard work and integrity of all of our employees.”
At our core, Careerminds is a people company. We use modern, cutting-edge tools to help individuals navigate the stressful, oftentimes confusing, world of career transition. Combining these tools and platforms with expert coaching, allows us to get people back to work in a new, meaningful role that fits their exact needs.
“Seeing the stress and struggle people experience in transition is the reason Careerminds was born,” Lee said.
“The vision of virtual outplacement came to life in 2008 after seeing how the workforce was changing and the way in which people look for jobs and got work done was changing.” You can read more about Careerminds’ origins in a new piece by The Philidelphia Inquirer about the team’s sixth Philly 100 recognition.
Our impeccable products – and the return our clients see back from them – are the backbone of our continued success and is responsible for helping us receive this award for the fifth time in a row.
Our clients are able to save thousands of dollars by using our modern approach to outplacement as opposed to the more traditional and stagnant models provided by other outplacement firms.
The intangible returns are also far greater in an age where word-of-mouth spreads faster than ever with the prevalent use of the internet. When using our outplacement services, our clients’ employer brands remain intact and are not tarnished from their reduction in force. This is due to the satisfaction of their employees going through our program. In fact, our clients have a 16.5% stronger employer brand than the average company on Glassdoor.
We at Careerminds pride ourselves on our growth, and we are honored to receive this recognition. It could not be made possible without the dedication of our employees and the loyalty of our clients.
“I’d like to personally thank my family and friends for their support, our clients, our investors, and the Philadelphia HR Community for their tremendous support,” Lee concludes.
“But most importantly I want to thank our dedicated team of employees and coaches who work hard every day to achieve the mission of the company and that is to reduce the stress that employees face in transition.”
