Wayne, PA (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
SkillSurvey®, the inventor and leading provider of online reference-checking solutions, announced today that it ranked 26th on The Philadelphia 100 fastest-growing companies list. The full list was revealed this month at an awards ceremony at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia. This is the first appearance for SkillSurvey.
One of the most desirable awards in the region, The Philadelphia100 is sponsored by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Business Journal and the Wharton Small Business Development Center, to honor local entrepreneurs and their contributions to the economy.
“We are thrilled to be counted among the top entrepreneurial companies in Philadelphia,” said Ray Bixler, president and chief executive officer of SkillSurvey. “We’re proud to be able to provide an innovative reference-checking solution that allows human-resource professionals in the region to make better hiring decisions, ultimately improving their organizations’ ability to grow and prosper.”
The company’s suite of solutions includes Pre-Hire 360®, which automates the process of gathering responses from an applicant’s references by using behaviorally-based surveys delivered through an exclusive electronic platform. Hiring managers receive reports aggregating the feedback of candidates’ managers, peers, subordinates and business partners to support efficient and effective selection decisions.
Subscribers of SkillSurvey® can also access a vast pool of prospective candidates using the company’s passive candidate database. This sourcing database is made up of references who participated in the Pre-Hire 360® survey and who would like to be kept informed of future openings at the hiring company itself.
In addition to this award, the company has also been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in America for its second consecutive year, and was recognized as a 2011 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 firm for Philadelphia.
