New York, NY ([October 29, 2013) – Las Vegas, NV-based Textbroker has been featured in the 2nd annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past 18 months. Textbroker generated 38 jobs from January 1st, 2012 to June 30th 2013, making it the top private business job creator within the state of Nevada.
“Textbroker is thrilled to be honored as a top job creator from Inc. Magazine,” said Phillip Thune, CEO Americas for Textbroker. “The growth in our employee base shows our dedication to providing our clients with the highest quality content and excellent customer service.”
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that only 222,000 full-time jobs were added in 2012—compare those numbers to the honorees of the Inc. magazine’s HIRE POWER AWARDS, which created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
“For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work for a second time,” says Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Inc. “The HIRE POWER AWARDS are the only awards that 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.”
