Dublin, Ohio (PRWEB) November 22, 2013
ViaQuest, Inc. has been recognized by Inc. Magazine with the prestigious Hire Power Award for being among the top job creators in the U.S. during the 18-month period from January 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013.
Generating 334 jobs across multiple business lines within that timeframe, ViaQuest ranked as the third-highest job creator in the healthcare industry nationwide and the fourth-highest overall job creator in Ohio. The company is headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, and maintains multiple operations throughout Ohio and western Pennsylvania. In all, ViaQuest employs about 1,500.
"We have been able to expand our delivery of quality healthcare services because we bring together the best and the brightest within our industry," said Rich Johnson, founder, CEO and president of ViaQuest. “We’ve created a culture where our people make the difference. This award is a testament to the care, hard work and commitment our employees provide every day to empower people with a wide range of needs to function independently and live their best lives.”
The majority of ViaQuest's new hires were in northern and central Ohio, but the company also experienced growth in Pittsburgh, Pa., and in the Dayton and Cleveland, Ohio, regions.
ViaQuest serves three distinct groups of people, including individuals with development disabilities through employment services and innovative care in small community-based or residential settings; aging adults in their residences or the setting of their choice through home health and hospice, and adults experiencing severe and/or persistent mental health issues.
Inc.’s Hire Power Awards honorees created 69,182 jobs in the 18-month time period, helping to move the U.S. economy forward. When compared to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report of 222,000 full-time jobs added in 2012, the impact is instrumental.
“We are pleased to recognize employers who are putting Americans back to work,” said Eric Schurenberg, editor-in chief of Inc. “The Hire Power Awards single out job creators. We think it’s fitting to pay tribute to company founders not just for their business prowess, but also for their immense contribution to the welfare of U.S. workers and the vitality of the U.S. economy.”
