Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
ADVOCATE, the premier provider of radiology revenue cycle management services nationwide, announces today it has been included on The Build Network’s Build 100 list recognizing America’s strongest and most strategic growth firms.
Last month, the Build Network, a management enterprise within Inc. Magazine, unveiled the Build 100, a business index that honors an elite tier of mid-market (85-999 employees) companies that have expanded employment in each of the last five years. Data was collected from over 100,000 US companies, and only 1.5 percent of those companies met that criteria. Of that 1.5 percent, 100 companies, including ADVOCATE Radiology Billing, were selected to be a part of the list.
"72 percent of all new U.S. jobs are created by 1 percent of companies," says Inc. economist-in-residence Gary Kunkle. "The Build 100 represents that top 1 percent of that 1 percent. They should be celebrated, but they must also be studied so that we can better understand -- and replicate -- the decisions, priorities, investments, and strategies that helped them grow."
“It is an honor to be recognized on the Build 100 list,” said Kirk Reinitz, President and CEO of ADVOCATE. “This acknowledgment is especially exciting for ADVOCATE as it showcases our continued commitment to growth and the dedication we have to our employees. We wouldn’t be where we are today without a strong, talented team and I couldn’t be more proud.”
Inc. unveiled the full Build 100 list in its March 2014 issue and on its affiliate website TheBuildNetwork.com in early 2014. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved employee growth in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Companies founded after 2008, or those with a current U.S. workforce smaller than 85 employees, were not considered. In addition, all Build 100 companies have agreed to participate in a year-long research initiative studying the key drivers of sustained growth.
