SeamlessHR, Others Recognised In Financial Times’s Ranking Of Fastest Growing African Companies

SeamlessHR, Africa’s leading HR and payroll software company, alongside three Ghanaian companies have been named amongst the fastest-growing African companies by the Financial Times, one of the world’s leading business news organisations. 

The Financial Times ranking of Africa’s Fastest-Growing Companies in 2024 was compiled in collaboration with Statista, a global data and business intelligence platform. The list ranks independent African companies by their organic, internally stimulated compound annual growth rate in revenue for the period reviewed. 

SeamlessHR’s absolute growth rates of 700.66percent and 100.06percent compound annual growth rate ranked it ahead of hundreds of leading companies from diverse industries such as technology, telecoms, manufacturing, financial services, and healthcare.
