By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Human Resource & Employment Services industry with the highest debt to EBITDA ratios. This ratio indicates how many years of EBITDA would be necessary in order to pay back all the debt (assuming Debt and EBITDA are constant). Typically, this ratio is considered to be alarming when it is greater than 3.0 but this can vary and should be looked at within the context of the industry.

Wageworks ranks highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 5.2. Trueblue Inc is next with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 2.9. Trinet Group Inc ranks third highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 2.4.

On Assignment follows with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 2.4, and Kforce Inc rounds out the top five with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 2.0.
