(TRAVELERS REST, S.C.) Leading outsourced payroll and human resources provider Sunkiko was recently honored by Inc. magazine today as a member of the Inc. 500, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Boasting an impressive 1000+ percent growth rate over the past three years, Sunkiko was ranked number 418 on the list.

“We attribute this stellar growth and incredible honor to a convergence of several factors,” noted Sunkiko President, Pamela Evette. “The fact that the payroll and HR regulatory environment is more complicated than ever before and the desire of businesses of all sizes to keep costs down costs while attracting top talent have combined to drive significantly increased demand for professional employer and administrative services organizations. While the overall market has expanded exponentially, Sunkiko has risen to the top in its category by providing expert guidance combined with unsurpassed client service. Our relentless pursuit of better solutions has made us a provider of choice for clients across a wide range of industries.”

Sunkiko joins companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, which gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies (including Sunkiko) featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.

“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
