RiseSmart, a leading provider of contemporary career transition services, today announced its recognition as one of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. As a result of RiseSmart’s unprecedented revenue growth of more than 450 percent during the past four years, the company ranked 174th on Deloitte’s technology list.
RiseSmart expects continued growth related to the launch of RiseSmart Spotlight, which was unveiled earlier this year. Spotlight is a cloud-based outplacement solution that combines one-on-one coaching from trained professionals with advanced technology to help transitioning employees pinpoint relevant job openings, network with professional contacts, and develop and promote their personal brands. The platform replaced RiseSmart Transition Concierge as the company's flagship outplacement solution and further differentiates the company from traditional brick-and-mortar outplacement providers.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in North America,” said Sanjay Sathé, RiseSmart president and CEO. “Our primary goal has always been to help employees impacted by a layoff transition smoothly and quickly into new roles that best suit them. The technology we’ve developed, combined with RiseSmart’s transition methodology, has done just that. As a result, we’ve experienced tremendous growth, and I’m confident our continued commitment to those we serve will foster even greater results.”
Due to increased customer demand and global growth, RiseSmart recently announced an expansion strategy, which includes strong recruiting efforts at the company’s office in Pune, India.
