Hackensack, NJ (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
CQ fluency, a firm specializing in cultural intelligence (CQ) and language solutions, has been named to Inc. magazine’s 33rd Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000. CQ fluency made the list based on its phenomenal growth rate from 2010 thru 2013 of 96 percent primarily in the healthcare industry.
“We are thrilled to be included in a group that has members such as Dell, LinkedIn, Chobani and many other well-known brands. Our rapid growth is directly attributed to our vastly diverse and experienced team, our commitment to being a people-centric culture, our expertise in the healthcare industry, and the nation’s recognition for the need to understand and respectfully address cultural differences for an ever-increasing ethnic population,” expressed Elisabete Miranda, CEO of CQ fluency.
CQ fluency’s exponential growth is the result of the firm’s ability to provide superior translation, cultural adaptation and transcreation services, especially in healthcare. CQ fluency’s mission is to facilitate real connections and promote true understanding among people who do not speak the same language. CQ’s cultural intelligence blends both meaning and feeling to create effective communication that transcends words and engage hearts and minds. This is particularly crucial in the healthcare arena where cultural competence has been proven to increase patient wellbeing and satisfaction, compliance and cost efficiency. CQ fluency ensures the seamless adaption of the message by the target audience - in any language for any culture.
Miranda explained that the need for cultural intelligence in the health industry has never been greater. Annual U.S. healthcare spending by a 2012 Deloitte Study: The Hidden Costs of U.S. Health Care, placed spending in 2013 at $3.652 trillion, 2014 at $3.830 trillion, and 2015 projections of $4.010 trillion. Another recent study from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and Workforce states that with the demand for healthcare growing at a rate twice that of the national economy, the industry is on track to create 5.6 million new jobs by 2020.
According to a statement by Inc., the Inc. 500/5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs. “What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-in-Chief Eric Schurenberg.
Surveying the CEO entrepreneurs that appear on the Inc. 500/5000 list shows they are not so average when compared to a national sample of entrepreneurs. The top three differences are they take far more risk - 85% versus 22% - by enthusiastically taking on challenges, have a highly optimistic perception of risk, and take a rational approach to decision making to mitigate risk. The founders display stronger business focus, 72% to 20%, by emphasizing profits, goals and metrics, and align employees with company goals. The third significant difference is in determination. The Inc. entrepreneurs have tremendous work ethic, confront and overcome obstacles, and are undeterred by failures or roadblocks by 71% to 23%.
