National Staffing, Recruiting, Culture Firm Named “Inner City 100” Honoree for Sixth Year by Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) and Fortune Magazine 

CHICAGO – LaSalle Network, a national staffing, recruiting and culture firm, has been named to the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) 2019 “Inner City 100” list for its sixth year.  

In partnership with Fortune magazine, this list recognizes the fastest-growing inner city businesses in America based on revenue growth between 2014 and 2018. LaSalle Network achieved 83 percent growth over the last five years, achieving organic revenue growth since its inception 21 years ago.

ICIC is a national nonprofit created by Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter in 1994. It was built on the premise that under-resourced communities have vast, untapped potential, purchasing power and labor markets, which can only be realized by small business owners who are growing and creating high-quality jobs.   

Over the past 25 years, ICIC has built a foundation for inclusive economic prosperity, proving Porter’s theory time and again. ICIC’s “Inner City 100” list has long celebrated entrepreneurship in under-resourced communities. The 2019 winners employed 8,743 people as of 2018.
