IRVINE, CA – August 15, 2023 – For Immediate Release – Accurate Background, the largest independent global provider of compliant background checks, drug and health screening, and monitoring solutions, today announced it was named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent businesses. 

Accurate’s 2023 ranking marks the ninth time the company was recognized on the Inc. 5000 list, a testament to the company’s sustainable growth strategy and commitment to service excellence. This year, Accurate achieved a ranking of 3470, validating its position as a trusted global provider of compliant employment screening services.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
