Hire Power Award ranks local company No. 9 nationally in Advertising & Marketing category; No. 6 in Indiana.
Slingshot SEO, the innovative firm delivering digital relevance for deserving brands, has been honored with Inc’s inaugural Hire Power Awards, recognizing private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.
Slingshot SEO generated 81 jobs from 2008 to 2011, placing it among the top 10 private business job creators in both the national Advertising & Marketing category (No. 9) and in Indiana (No. 6).
A full list of honorees by state, industry and company size can be found here.
Designed to recognize companies “leading the charge” on job creation, the Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.’s December/January issue, as well as on the brand’s web site, www.inc.com.
“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.”
In addition, Slingshot was recently named one of the country’s top tech companies by Lead411. The “Tech 200” is an annual listing of the country’s fastest growing privately held companies. Based on revenue percentage growth from 2008 to 2010, Slingshot SEO ranked No. 11 this year. A full list can be found here. Slingshot SEO was No. 14 on the list last year (2011).
