Wayne, PA (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
SkillSurvey®, Inc. announced today that it was named to this year’s Philadelphia 100 list for the second consecutive year. The inventor and leading provider of online reference-checking solutions ranked 45th among the 100 fastest-growing, privately owned companies within the Philadelphia region. Rankings were announced at the annual awards ceremony, held on October 16, 2013, at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia.
One of the most respected awards in the region, The Philadelphia 100 is sponsored by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Business Journal and the Wharton Small Business Development Center, and honors local entrepreneurs and their contributions to the economy.
“It’s a great accomplishment to be counted among the top entrepreneurial companies in the Philadelphia region for our second year in a row,” said Ray Bixler, president and chief executive officer of SkillSurvey®. “We strive to continue to create innovative HR solutions that revolutionize how organizations make better hiring decisions – decisions that strengthen their workforces and help them to grow their organizations.”
The company invented its Pre-Hire 360® reference-checking solution, and a series of studies (1) that were published in the International Journal of Selection and Assessment show how it statistically predicts involuntary turnover and future job performance of those hired. SkillSurvey has also expanded its product suite by introducing The Q®, a first-of-its-kind talent portal and social network that allows organizations to source talent by turning references into candidates, and Credential360™, a solution that leverages the reference assessment technology behind Pre-Hire 360® to obtain responses from peer references faster in the cumbersome medical credentialing process.
