SIA bases the list on staffing revenue, which is calculated from temporary staffing, direct hire, retained search and temp-to-perm conversion fees. The Planet Group specializes in contract staffing, contract-to-hire and direct hire in several high-growth areas, including:
- Life Sciences (Planet Pharma)
- Energy / Engineering (Planet Forward)

- Enterprise Technology / Big Data / Cloud Computing (Planet121)
- Accounting & Finance / Human Resources / Administrative (WinterWyman’s Professional division)
- Core Technology / Software Engineering / Quality Assurance (WinterWyman’s Technology division)
Seventy-six staffing agencies were included on the Fastest Growing US Staffing Firms list. Founded in 2009, this is the first year that The Planet Group was recognized.
