Research Firm Clutch Announces the Leading Human Resources and Accounting Companies for 2019 in Select U.S. Cities

March 29, 2019

Clutch researched thousands of companies in 15 U.S. cities to select the 16 top human resources companies and 8 top accounting firms, based on industry leadership, work quality, and client satisfaction ratings.


WASHINGTON, D.C., March 29, 2019 – The top-performing B2B companies that offer human resources and accounting services were announced today by Clutch, the leading B2B ratings and reviews company.

Survey data from Clutch shows that 45% of small and medium businesses do not invest in an accountant or bookkeeper, and 51% of small businesses plan to hire more employees this year. This shows that human resources and accounting companies with a proven track record of success are necessary and in-demand in 2019.

To identify the best human resources and accounting firms, Clutch evaluated each based on client feedback, work quality, services offered, and market presence.


The leading human resources companies, listed alphabetically, are as follows:

  • Abel HR
  • Acadia HR
  • Advantage Resourcing
  • Aerotek
  • Boyden
  • Corporate Synergies
  • Creative Circle
  • HUB International
  • Keepers Staffing
  • Kelly Services
  • Mercer
  • PrideStaff
  • Randstad
  • Remedy Intelligent Staffing
  • Sentinel
  • The Segal Group


The leading accounting firms, listed alphabetically, are as follows:

  • Bay Business Group
  • Capital Recovery Corporation
  • Maxim Liberty, Inc.
  • Murray, Jonson, White & Associates
  • Profit Matters
  • Quatrro
  • RemSource


“It’s been great to listen to the different reasons businesses search for HR and accounting service providers,” Clutch Business Analyst Misty Lopez said. “I typically hear business owners mention that they just didn’t have the capacity in-house to handle their needs, so they decided to hire outside expertise. They truly go above and beyond to serve their clients and meet their goals.”

Clutch’s research on human resources companies and accounting firms is ongoing. The Clutch team invites interested companies to apply to get listed in the report next year.

The results are a snapshot of Clutch’s Leaders Matrices on Thursday, March 14, 2019. Rankings are dynamic and may not reflect the rankings currently listed on Clutch’s website.
