Mansfield, MA, April 24, 2015 – HR Knowledge has been named a 2015 Pacesetter by the Boston Business Journal, designating it one of the region’s fastest-growing private companies. The company ranked #56, based on its strong financial growth over the past four years despite the challenging economy. This is the first time HR Knowledge has received this honor.

The Pacesetters is an annual list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in Massachusetts. To be considered, companies were required to generate a minimum of $1 million in revenue in 2014. The list includes 70 businesses that have demonstrated strong revenue growth for the last four years. “These exciting companies are driving the state’s economy and we’re honored to highlight their founders’ brains, drive and perseverance,” said Gale Murray, publisher at Boston Business Journal.

“Our growth,” said Ken Bettenhauser, HR Knowledge president, “is intimately tied to the success of the Boston region, since many local companies use our services to support their human resource needs. Our goal is to provide integrated HR, Payroll, and Benefits services with an exceptionally high level of care allowing our clients and their employees to focus on building and developing their company. And being listed alongside some of our clients and other successful privately held companies is a testament to our outstanding team.”

The Pacesetters award ceremony was not only an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the top 70 fastest-growing companies, it also served as an opportunity to raise money for the Massachusetts Special Olympics. Collectively, award recipients donated almost $38,000. HR Knowledge is honored to be included in this donation in supporting a great cause.
