Inc. 5000 Includes TriNet for Third Consecutive Year

Trusted Small Business Provider Moves Up 500 Spots After Growing 178 Percent Over Last Three Years in Annual List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies

SAN LEANDRO, CA--(Marketwire - August 31, 2010) -  TriNet, the country's largest private provider of human resources outsourcing solutions to small businesses, was named to Inc.

"We're thrilled to be included as one of today's innovative company builders," said Burton M. Goldfield, TriNet's president and CEO. "Our ranking in the Inc. 5000 is a direct result of the trust and confidence entrepreneurs have in TriNet as a trusted advisor to help them grow their small businesses."

Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period took place during the current recessionary climate, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. However, the effects of the recession are seen in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent, down from 126 percent last year. Additionally, this year's Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from 1 million from last year's list.

In addition, TriNet is one of 684 California-based companies included in the Inc. 5000, the most of any state.

This year's rankings were determined by percentage revenue growth between 2006 and 2009.
