HR Industry Changes & Analysis from 2008 to 2013

Software reviewer Software Advice reviewed the data of HR-related companies to assess how the industry has changed from 2008 to 2013. This data included revenue, number of employees, and location taken from the Inc. 5000 list from 2008 and Inc. 5000 list from 2013, where the data was aggregated and compared. It also needs to be noted that the data collected by Inc. is from the previous year, so the information is really from 2007 and 2012, respectively. Below are the highlights from their analysis. Software Advice does have a copy of the full report, while you can view the charts and stats in the Slideshare presentation at the end of this blog post. The overall findings show that the HR industry grew, increasing revenue and its number of employees.
