It was another year-end celebration for the books!
Last Saturday, our employees gathered at The Lumbar Exchange Building in Downtown Minneapolis for our best year-end party yet! (At least we think so!) The theme of the year-end party was “Avionté 2020” and employees were encouraged to think of all that Avionté could be in five years and to dress in their best futuristic attire.
Our employees gave the challenge their all, rocking silver makeup, leather jackets, suit coats and more. The party was a great way to celebrate the year’s successes and plan for all that is ahead.

2015 was a great year for our recruiting and staffing software company, Avionté. We welcomed over 100 new clients, maintained a 99 percent user retention and celebrated our 10-year anniversary with over 10,000 live users! We are so thankful for the clients we continue to represent and for the new clients we brought on board in 2015.
Other company highlights include:
a. A 40 percent increase in investment in R&D, along with numerous additional high-level development roles created and the building out of a DevOps team.
b. Another high-growth year for revenue, placing on the Inc 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies list for the 4th year in a row.
c. The largest client turnout yet at our Client Connection forum event, with over 300 client attendees in early August.
d. High employee satisfaction rates, placing on Minnesota Business magazine’s Best Companies list for the 3rd year.
e. A handful of new partnerships established including background screening providers Asurint and PeopleG2, time and attendance solution Peoplenet and myHRCounsel for compliance guidance.
f. Honored as a Minnesota Business Builder finalist from Upsize Business magazine.

We are looking forward to further growth and product enhancements in 2016. Avionté CEO John Long highlighted this and more during the company’s year-end company meeting on Friday, February 5th, challenging Avionté employees to approach the New Year with new drives towards execution and thinking creatively.
“We’ve kept our heads down, focused on our customers and employees and built what we felt the industry was missing and truly needed in a staffing software product,” John said when the year wrapped up. “…I’m very pleased with how far we’ve come.”
