Company Ranks #3 in Job Creation in Michigan Over the Past 18 Months
LIVONIA, Mich. (November 4, 2013) – WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, was featured in the second annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that play a leading role in job creation.
WorkForce Software generated 139 jobs from January 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013, placing it among the top three private business job creators within the state of Michigan and as one of the top ten job creators in the software industry.
“It is a great honor to be included for the second year in Inc.’s Hire Power Awards and to be recognized as one of the top job creators in Michigan and the overall software industry,” said Kevin Choksi, CEO and co-founder of WorkForce Software. “Over the past year and a half, we have been fortunate to add nearly 150 talented professionals who share our commitment to advancing the workforce management function. Each new member of our team plays a critical role in enhancing the value we deliver to our rapidly expanding global client base.”
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that only 222,000 full-time jobs were added in 2012—compare those numbers to the honorees of the Inc. magazine’s Hire Power Awards, which created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. The numbers become even more amazing when you look closer—the top job creator, Universal Services of America added 14,240 employees to a workforce of 35,000; second-place Vivint added 1,943 to 6,496 and third-place Heartland Dental Care added 1,759 to 4,965. These small to mid-sized companies and others just like WorkForce Software could hold the key to restoring America’s economic vitality.
“For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work for a second time,” says Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Inc. “The Hire Power Awards are the only awards that single out job creators. We think it’s fitting to pay tribute to company founders not just for their business prowess but also for their immense contribution to the welfare of U.S. workers and the vitality of the U.S. economy.”
WorkForce Software is among the 437 private growth companies that are Hire Power Awards honorees, leading the way in creating more American jobs. While the honorees are found across the country in 25 categories, industries with the most Hire Power companies include health, financial services, software, human resources and IT services. States with the most honorees include California, Florida, Texas, Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois and Utah.
In addition to receiving this award, WorkForce Software is currently hosting Vision 2013, its annual user conference. Held at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida, the event is designed to show current and prospective clients how they can make the most of their investment in the company’s EmpCenter suite.
