"We have been fortunate to maintain consistent growth through challenging economic times," said Albert Crawford, Chairman and CEO of BHG. "That growth is a testament to the hard work of our employees as well as the organization's ability to constantly evaluate what we're doing and adapt to changing market conditions."
This year's 437 Hire Power honorees created nearly 70,000 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
"For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work," said Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Inc.

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."
