The Select Group Named Among Inc.’s 2013 Hire Power Honorees

Raleigh, NC, November 07, 2013 --( Inc. magazine has ranked The Select Group No. 24 overall on its Inc. Hire Power Awards list. The Raleigh-based executive and IT staffing firm also ranked No. 1 in the human resources industry category, No. 1 in the state category for North Carolina and No. 1 in the 101-250-employee company size category.

The Hire Power Awards honor companies that are creating jobs and keeping the economy moving forward. Over the past year, The Select Group helped create 446 jobs and helped generate between $20 to $50 million in revenue. In honor of the achievement, The Select Group and other honorees will be featured in the November issue of Inc. magazine and in a special online section.

“For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work,” says Eric Schurenberg, Inc.’s editor in chief. “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 contributions to the welfare of U.S. workers and the vitality of the U.S. economy.”
