Wayne, PA (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
SkillSurvey®, Inc. announced today that it was named to Deloitte’s 2013 Fast 500™ list for North America for a third consecutive year. SkillSurvey, the inventor and leading provider of online reference-checking solutions, ranked number 225 among the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and clean technology companies in North America.
The ranking is based on SkillSurvey’s 455% revenue growth between 2008 and 2012. The company added over 200 new clients in 2012 alone, immediately helping those organizations improve their quality-of-hire through web-based reference assessments.
“We are pleased to be recognized among the top technology companies for the third consecutive year,” said Ray Bixler, president and chief executive officer of SkillSurvey, Inc. “We’re thankful to our tremendously loyal clients and are thrilled to be able to consistently provide solutions that allow human resources professionals to have greater transparency and to ensure only the best candidates are selected during the hiring process.”
“The 2013 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 companies are exemplary cases of those spurring growth in a tough market through innovation,” said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “This year’s list is a who’s who of companies behind the most exciting and innovative products and services in the technology space. We congratulate the Fast 500 companies and look forward to what they do next.”
“The fastest-growing companies in the U.S. are drivers of constant innovation and operate with the agility to stay ahead of a quickly evolving marketplace, and software, biotech/pharma, and internet companies continue to be at the forefront,” added James Atwell, national managing partner of the Emerging Growth Company practice, Deloitte Services LP. “The companies excelling in these sectors have a startup mentality that allows them to be nimble and adapt quickly, which is why they consistently lead the list of fast-growing companies each year.”
The company invented its Pre-Hire 360® reference-checking solution, and a series of studies 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.
