Virtudesk Achieves Greater Growth and Recognition with These New Awards
“The name came up very spontaneously,” said Virtudesk CEO Pavel Stepanov. Naming the company came from combining “virtual” and “desk”, “kind of an epiphany of working remotely,” for him and his old team.
A few years have passed and Virtudesk has achieved greater growth, garnering recognition from the business world’s most renowned awarding organizations.
Celebrating the success of the Virtudesk family, here are some of the most recent awards that recognize the hard work and dedication of Virtudesk.
1. INC 5000
Acknowledging dedication to growth and prosperity, INC 5000 introduces Virtudesk as the 1068th fastest-growing privately-held company in the United States.
Founded in 2016, Virtudesk was able to achieve a 454% growth in the past three years, making it the 20th fastest-growing privately-held company in Seattle.
In spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, CEO Pavel Stepanov was able to navigate toward stability and growth by grounding the company in family values, and showing clients that they would be taking serious losses if they cut their payroll during such an uncertain time.
“We took some measures that actually allowed us to operate without laying people off,” he says in an interview. This included reducing profit and helping virtual assistants keep their clients by studying the effectiveness of outsourcing in a tight labor market.
Focusing on preserving people’s livelihoods and businesses, the company ended up growing with its clients, worthy of being in the INC 5000 list of 2021, in spite of a pandemic.
On a global scale, Growjo also recognized Virtudesk as the #1 fastest-growing outsourcing company in the world for its 2022 list.
Growjo acknowledges Virtudesk’s milestone of growing its employee count by 209% in the last year. This means the company is able to empower more people with more jobs, and boost the growth of its new clients’ businesses.
This recognition also places Virtudesk 755th on a global list led by OpenSea, Axie Infinity, and SellerX.
3. Titan Business Awards
Celebrating and honoring outstanding entrepreneurship across all industries, Titan Business Awards also includes Virtudesk on their list of winners for the year 2022.
Titan gives the Achievement award to Virtudesk recognizing its 454% 3-year growth achievement. Once again, this validates all the hard work and passion behind Virtudesk’s success in spite of a global pandemic.
4. American Business Awards
The American Business Awards becomes next on the list of prestigious organizations recognizing the Virtudesk family’s hard work that earned an outstanding growth of 454% during a 3-year period.
From the list of winners, Virtudesk becomes one of the few entrants to win a Silver Stevie Award for being one of the fastest-growing companies with up to 2,500 employees.
Virtudesk feels immense gratitude for once again being recognized for the growth achieved by the organization.
5. Better Business Bureau Accreditation (BBB)
Virtudesk’s efforts to provide quality services that truly help its clients have paid off immensely with an A+ accreditation from the Better Business Bureau.

I’ll rate Virtudesk 5/5. My experience with Virtudesk was fantastic. I like your follow-ups and consistency is very refreshing and it makes me feel very confident in hiring Virtudesk.

We hired a VA because we needed help on recruiting for agents and I am very satisfied with my Virtual Assistant. The experience with Virtudesk is really good and I am really really happy.
One of the reasons why we hire a Virtual Assistant is because a VA can’t walk out my door and take my business. Second, the cost value and the third is, we just had a super well qualified hardworking admin – I am very satisfied with my VA. We are also constantly getting follow-ups to ensure that we are very satisfied.
