Just out: Inc. magazine’s list of companies that have consistently upped their headcounts every year, recession or not. IT and staffing firm Kybba is one of the very few that did so.
“We began the Build 100 project by collecting data on more than 100,000 U.S. midmarket companies (those with 85 to 999 employees). We then looked at how many increased head count in every year from 2007 to 2012. Remarkably, fewer than 1.5 percent of the companies met that standard…We focused on head count rather than revenue because we found that increased hiring is more predictive of future sustained growth, and that’s what this project is all about.”
