San Jose, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2011

RiseSmart, the leading provider of next-generation outplacement solutions, has been named to the Red Herring Global Top 100, which recognizes the leading private companies in North America, Europe and Asia. RiseSmart is among just 47 U.S. companies on the Global Top 100 list.

The honor comes on the heels of the company’s selection as a Red Herring North America Top 100 winner in June. The Global Top 100 finalists, representing past Red Herring Asia, Europe and North America award winners, were judged on a range of metrics, including technology innovation, financial performance, growth criterion, management’s execution standards, and potential globalization of the strategy and market share improvement.

“Choosing the best out of the previous two years was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, chairman of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed down our list from 1,100 potential companies to 100 winners. It was an extremely difficult process. RiseSmart should be extremely proud of its achievement, the competition for the Top 100 was fierce. The Global Top 100 are truly the best of the best.”

Red Herring’s Global Top 100 list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Google, Skype, Baidu, Salesforce.com, YouTube, eBay and others would change the way we live and work.

RiseSmart is transforming the outplacement industry with Transition Concierge, which uses the power of technology to provide companies with a cost-effective and results-driven outplacement solution. With a unique blend of proprietary job-matching software and high-touch human interaction, Transition Concierge delivers personalized job leads paired with one-on-one assistance from trained Transition Specialists during all phases of the job search process. The company currently boasts a time-to-placement ratio two-times faster than the national average.

“Reception of this Global Top 100 award along with the new additions of senior executives from legacy outplacement firms proves yet again that our innovative, technology-based platform is the preferred business model in the outplacement industry,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. “This award is a special honor, and I look forward to continuing to achieve significant recognition for our accomplishments through awards similar to the Red Herring Global Top 100.”

Winners were announced December 7, 2011, at the Red Herring Global forum in Los Angeles, where finalists were invited to present their winning strategies at a special awards ceremony. The complete Red Herring Global Top 100 list can be found at http://www.redherring.com/RHG/2011/top100.html.
