OKLAHOMA CITY (PRWEB) January 4, 2006
In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nation’s leading multicultural Internet site, recently named HRLogix, a leading provider of recruiting management technologies, as one of the top 50 diversity-owned businesses in Oklahoma (Div50).
The Div50 classification represents Oklahoma’s top 50 diversity-owned (women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Indian and other minority groups) businesses in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. This 6th annual listing includes companies ranging in revenue size from $500,000 to $740,000,000 representing Oklahoma’s top multicultural earners and challenging the long-held notion that a diversity-owned business is small or insignificant.
“The Div50 companies are the heroes of diversity-owned business in Oklahoma,” said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. “While Fortune magazine lists the best companies for minorities to work for, we list the top businesses owned by minorities. These are the people who have conquered the hurdles and made the sacrifices, building and strengthening their communities, providing jobs and helping to keep the fabric of the U.S. economy together.”
Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, corporations throughout the country have recognized that buying products and services from diversity-owned companies positively impacts their business. Diversity-owned businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.
“We are so proud to be recognized in the Div50,” said Maryann Gagnon, owner and president of Edmond-based HRLogix. “It’s a great honor to be singled out from this select group of successful companies and extraordinary business owners.”
Maryann Gagnon founded HRLogix in May 2002, and it has been the fastest growing HR solutions company in the country.
