NEW YORK, September 13, 2021 – Inc. magazine revealed that Floyd Lee Locums is No. 925 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The company is the highest-ranking healthcare staffing agency on the list and in the top 5 of all those based in Charleston. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within America’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“Having founded the company four years ago, it’s humbling to be recognized by the Inc. 5000 in our first year of eligibility,” said Floyd Lee Locums CEO Natasha Lee. “As a healthcare staffing firm, dedicated to supporting clinicians and healthcare facilities nationwide, we recognize how challenging the pandemic has been for everyone. I am proud of how our team has handled the past 18 months, truly living by our motto: ‘By connecting clinicians to purposeful work, we impact lives.’”
For Floyd Lee Locums, the stakes of 2020 couldn’t have been higher. Patients, clinicians, and healthcare facilities across our country were looking for direction and support in unprecedented times as the care industry faced crippling changes. While other companies and staffing agencies were cutting pay and/or staff internally, Floyd Lee Locums was building their workforce and executive team. Where others took away benefits or furloughed employees, this agency created a model that had consultants available to hospitals 24/7 through weekends and holidays. This dedication to the healthcare industry is reflected in the financial results recognized by the Inc. 5000 list.
According to Inc. magazine, not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given the unprecedented challenges of 2020. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
