ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 31, 2004--TALX Corporation (NASDAQ:TALX), a leading business process outsourcer of payroll and human resource services, today announced that TALX has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies by FORTUNE magazine for the second consecutive year.

FORTUNE annually compiles this list of 100 fastest-growing companies by considering companies with a minimum market cap of $50 million, at least $50 million in revenue over the past four quarters, and 20 percent or better annual growth in sales and earnings per share over the past three years. FORTUNE then factored in total stock market return to come up with the final list.

"As the leader in employment and income verification as well as unemployment cost management services, TALX is pleased to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies by FORTUNE," said Bill Canfield, chief executive officer and president of TALX Corporation. "Our rapid growth is a direct result of the tremendous value that our payroll/HR related services offer to employers.
