Excerpt from a recent press release:
New York, NY (October 24, 2013) – Headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Valkyrie Enterprises was featured in the 2nd annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.
Valkyrie placed among the top 20 private business job creators within the state of Virginia and 9thnationally in the Government Services category.
“This year has certainly been full of challenges…the sequester, a government shutdown, and no DoD budget (again) for FY14. Nonetheless, we are honored and humbled to have made the 2013 Hire Power list,” stated Gary M. Lisota, President and CEO of Valkyrie Enterprises.
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. The numbers become even more amazing when you look closer—the top job creator, Universal Services of America added 14,240 employees to a workforce of 35,000; second-place Vivint added 1,943 to 6,496 and third-place Heartland Dental Care added 1,759 to 4,965. These small to mid-sized companies and others just like Valkyrie could hold the key to restoring America’s economic vitality.
“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.”
