Manassas, VA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
New Horizon Security Services, Inc., a privately-owned security services firm, recently received recognition as one of the nation’s leading businesses in hiring new employees. For the second year in a row, New Horizon has ranked high on Inc. magazine’s Hire Power Awards, established annually since 2011. New Horizon is headquartered in Manassas, VA and has satellite branches throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, including Richmond, Tidewater, Virginia Beach, and Danville. New Horizon’s 2013 Hire Power Award rankings are #48 nationwide and #2 in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The company’s subcategory ranking includes #3 in the national security services industry.
Inc. magazine’s annual list of the top 5000 fastest growing companies gives recognition to businesses that have seen substantial growth. In 2013, New Horizon ranked #1438/5000, marking its 3rd consecutive year on the list (security services award) The Hire Power Awards, also sponsored by Inc. magazine, gives recognition to those privately-owned businesses on the forefront of hiring new employees and rebuilding the economy through American job creation.
Inc. editor-in-chief, Eric Schurenberg explained, "No company goes into business simply to create jobs. Jobs are a by-product of success and growth--and historically, America's fastest-growing employers and most important job creators have been entrepreneurs. […] The Hire Power Awards are the only awards that single out job creators. We think it is a recognition that is long overdue." New Horizon’s 2013 Hire Power Awards rankings directly correlates with its significant growth over the past three years. Since 2011, the company has seen an increase in size, geographical reach, revenue, and number of employees that culminated in a nearly 300% growth. And New Horizon shows no signs of slowing down.
“We are ever-expanding and branching outside of the Commonwealth. Our growth, however, is completely dependent on our ability to hire and retain the best possible employees,” said John “J.J.” Frazer, New Horizon President. The security services industry is unique in that the employees are also the product. New Horizon’s core business strategy is centered on hiring only the best employees, and thereby, providing the highest-quality security services for their clients. The extensive hiring process for all new employees ensures that the individuals hired have high moral standards and exude pride, respect, and integrity.
Retaining such high-quality employees is another key component in New Horizon’s growth, and is what makes New Horizon unique from other security services firms. “We sincerely care about our employees. After all, they are our greatest asset. Taking care of them means taking care of our clients,” continued Frazer. Because New Horizon is a family-owned and operated corporation, executives make decisions and create policies that are in the best interest of their employees. “[At New Horizon], we provide stable, good paying jobs with medical benefits that give employees the opportunity to take care of themselves and their families. We do this not because of the Affordable Care Act, but because it is the right thing to do. Our corporate commitment to our employees predates any mandate. It has been our philosophy from the beginning,” said Frazer. Current, top-performing employees are also offered opportunities for professional growth and advancement. Employees are continually encouraged to provide feedback and find opportunities to flourish in their work environments.
Hiring, retaining, and providing professional advancement opportunities for all employees helped make New Horizon one of the nation’s fastest growing companies. Such sound business practices, which are built on a foundation of integrity and respect, have clearly set New Horizon apart from its competition. More importantly, however, these business practices are creating American jobs during an unstable economic time. “We are extremely proud to be able to put Virginians back to work by creating job opportunities in this challenging economy,” stated Frazer. This year’s Hire Power Award rankings offers the type of recognition businesses like New Horizon deserve for hiring new employees and creating a stronger American work force overall.
