The Planet Group Named One of the Largest US Staffing Firms by Staffing Industry Analysts
Inclusion on the list marks the first time The Planet Group has been recognized as one of the Largest US Staffing Firms
Chicago, IL (October 26, 2020) — Planet Professional’s (formerly WinterWyman) parent company, The Planet Group, a leading provider of outsourced human capital and consulting solutions, was named by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) as one of the Largest US Staffing Firms.
To qualify as a Largest US Staffing Firm, agencies had to have generated at least $100 million in US staffing revenue in 2019. The Planet Group was also named by SIA as one of the Fastest Growing US Staffing Firms earlier this month.
SIA bases the list on staffing revenue, which is calculated from temporary staffing, direct hire, retained search and temp-to-perm conversion fees. The Planet Group specializes in contract staffing, contract-to-hire and direct hire in several high-growth areas, including:
- Life Sciences (Planet Pharma)
- Energy / Engineering (Planet Forward)
- Nursing (Planet Healthcare)
- Creative & Digital Marketing (Planet Interactive, now Planet Technology)
- Enterprise Technology / Big Data / Cloud Computing (Planet121, now Planet Technology)
- Accounting & Finance / Human Resources / Administrative (Planet Professional)
- Core Technology / Software Engineering / Quality Assurance (WinterWyman’s Technology division, now Planet Technology)
“The companies in this year’s report represent 63.5% of the market and with a combined revenue of $97 billion indicate an industry well-positioned to weather the impact of the pandemic,” SIA President Barry Asin said.
“Since our founding in 2009, we’ve experienced tremendous growth in our key staffing areas, especially in the Life Sciences, Technology, Energy and Healthcare sectors,” said Michael Stomberg, CEO of The Planet Group. “With our global portfolio of customers and extensive client base in the US, we are well-positioned for continued growth and expansion.”
