LIVONIA, MI--(Marketwire - Dec 5, 2012) - WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, today announced that is has received an Inc. Hire Power Award, formally recognizing the company as one of the leading contributors to private sector job growth in the United States.

"The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 -- an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession," explained Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. "And it isn't just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list."

The inaugural Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which is proud to recognize American companies that have greatly increased their workforces. Inc.'s Hire Power Awards celebrates private companies on the forefront of American job creation, giving these businesses the recognition they deserve. The Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.'s December/January issue, as well as the brand's web site,

"It is tremendous that Inc. is recognizing companies like ours for creating new jobs during a turbulent economic period," said Kevin Choksi, CEO and co-founder of WorkForce Software. "From day one, WorkForce Software's success has been tied to our ability to hire and retain the best talent in the industry. As a result, as demand for our workforce management suite has rapidly grown, so has the team developing, delivering, and supporting it. Creating new jobs is certainly a positive story, although in our case it is also a sound business decision."

Prior to receiving the Inc. Hire Power Award, WorkForce Software earned a spot on the magazine's 500|5000 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies earlier this year. The company has also been recognized on Software Magazine's list of the world's largest software and services providers and as a 2012 SaaS Top 250 company by Montclair Advisors. In addition, WorkForce Software has received numerous awards for its workplace culture and HR practices, including a 2012 Top Workplace designation by The Detroit Free Press and getting listed as a "Cool Place to Work" by Crain's Detroit Business magazine.
