2022 was a historic year for Kforce. We delivered a record-high $1.71 billion in revenue while transitioning to our hybrid work model called office occasional. We also made strategic investments in our people, tools and technology that will allow us to continue providing great results to our customers for years to come.
I’m hard pressed to remember a year when our company experienced such transformational change. We opened more than 30 reimagined offices dedicated to a new way of where and how work is performed. We deepened our expertise in our technology business, increasing revenue in this area about 18% year-over-year with it accounting for nearly 90% of total revenue. We announced leadership changes that aligned successful, experienced executive team members with our firm’s top priorities, such as our integrated sales strategy and back-office investments. We kept innovation at the forefront, deploying new technologies and leveraging Microsoft’s dynamic ecosystem to strengthen our connection in an increasingly dispersed world. And we leaned further into our people-first culture rooted in unity, compassion and fun.
Going forward, our investments in our own back office will make us even easier to do business with as we roll out improvements for our clients, consultants and internal teams over the next several years. We’ll continue to weave diversity, equity and inclusion into all we do while expanding our affinity groups and employee support. Improved engagement tools will help us stay close to our people. We look forward to seeing how office occasional – our remote-first, hybrid work model – enhances our employees’ lives and productivity long term while reducing our real-estate footprint and emissions. We are charting an intentional path forward that betters our people, our communities and our environment.
It's impossible to know where the future will take us, but I trust that our commitment to our people along with the resiliency of our well-curated business model will bring long-term success and a bright future for all shareholders. We are driven by a desire to help others reach their highest potential: for our people to enjoy careers that fulfill them; for our clients to solve their most pressing needs; and for our consultants to accomplish great things with their unique skills. I look forward to the opportunities we’ll discover as we move Together Toward Tomorrow.
