New York, NY (PRWEB) December 07, 2012
Akron, OH-based MobilityWorks featured in the inaugural ranking of Inc.’s Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.
MobilityWorks (aka WMK, Inc.) generated 83 new jobs from 2008 to 2011, placing it among the top 10 private business job creators within the state of Ohio. They now have 20 locations in 12 states and 330 employees nationwide.
MobilityWorks is the leading retailer of wheelchair accessible vans and adaptive equipment in the United States and the largest conversion manufacturer of commercial vans for transporting disabled riders.
Inc. is the only major business media brand aimed solely at CEOs of fast-growing private companies. The Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.’s December/January issue, as well as the brand’s web site, http://www.inc.com. MobilityWorks reached Inc. Magazine's “honor roll” status last year, a special designation given only to those currently in the Inc. 500|5000 and having also appeared 5 times or more in previous years.
“The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 – an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession,” explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “And it isn’t just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list.”
The inaugural Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which is proud to recognize American companies that have greatly increased their workforces. Inc.’s Hire Power Awards celebrates private companies on the forefront of American job creation, giving these businesses the recognition they deserve.
