Inc. Magazine Unveils 30th Annual List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies -- the Inc. 500
MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Aug 25, 2011) - Inc. magazine today ranked Jobs2web, the leading provider of interactive recruiting solutions, No. 419 on its 30th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500. Jobs2web has been named to the prestigious list for three consecutive years.
"During this time of fluctuating fortunes and turbulent economies, our dramatic growth is a reflection of the value we provide to companies looking to leverage Web 2.0 recruiting strategies and gain greater visibility online to attract top talent," said Ken Holec, Jobs2web's CEO. "With an increasing number of new clients who are finding better people more efficiently and effectively, we have fast become the acknowledged leader for optimized interactive recruiting."
Doug Berg, Jobs2web Founder and Chief Recruiting Geek, added, "When budgets are tight, HR professionals who understand exactly what's working and what's not in terms of recruiting can maximize their recruiting dollars and focus on strategies that most effectively drive down cost per hire. One of the keys to our success has been our ability to deliver analytics that arm HR professionals with the information they need to transform recruiting effectiveness."
The 2011 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23 to November 15 and on Inc.com), is a group of companies that are smaller but much faster-growing than last year's crop. Aggregate revenue is $10.5 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,275 percent. The companies on this year's list employ more than 46,000 people and generated over 35,000 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com/500.
