Chicago, Ill., October 24, 2013 – LaSalle Network, Chicago’s premier provider of professional staffing and recruiting services, announced today that it is a recipient of the 2013 Hire Power Awards.
Sponsored by Inc. Magazine and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the second-annual Hire Power Awards recognize America’s top job creators that are restoring lives and rebuilding the economy by putting Americans back to work.
“We come into the office everyday ready to change lives,” said Tom Gimbel, Founder and CEO of LaSalle Network. “There are too many job seekers out there, and just as many, if not more, unfilled positions, and it’s gratifying to be recognized for our dedication to connecting the two.”
The companies awarded are US-based and privately owned, both for profit and non-profit. To qualify, companies must have been founded in 2011 or earlier and have employed at least 10 full-time US-based employees as of December 31, 2012. Award categories include most jobs created in the US, most jobs created by state, most jobs created by industry, highest employee growth percentage, and highest employee growth by revenue category.
“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.”
LaSalle Network is the only Illinois-based staffing firm to be named on the Inc. 500/5000 list for the past seven consecutive years and expects to see substantial growth continue through 2013. Since its inception in 1998, LaSalle Network has worked with thousands of clients and has placed more than 25,000 candidates in temporary, temporary-to-permanent, and permanent positions in the business areas of accounting and finance, technology, office services, call center, human resources, marketing and executive search.
The Hire Power Awards ceremony will take place November 12, 2013, at the Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel in San Francisco, Calif.
