Tiger Correctional Services Named To The Build 100 List For Its Record Five-Year Job Growth
Inc. Magazine Celebrates America's Enduring Job Creators with The Build 100 Index of Sustained-Growth Companies
Jonesboro, AR, March 14, 2014/ -- Inc. magazine named Tiger Correctional Services to The Build 100, a new business index that honors an elite tier of companies that have expanded their employment in each of the past five years. The index was created by studying the growth performance of millions of U.S. midmarket companies between 2007 and 2012. This inaugural list celebrates agile, enduring firms across a spectrum of industries, including IT services, transportation providers, marketing platforms, and dental services, among others.
The Build 100 is not just another business award; it is a predictive tool built on rigorous economic research showing the only statistically significant predictor of a company's future success is sustained job growth over time. Every Build 100 company has added jobs in each of the last five years; a feat worth celebrating in any economic climate.
"Tiger Correctional Services has experienced tremendous growth in the last five years. We’ve done this by staying true to our principles and always striving to improve our service and by offering creative solution to the needs of our customers," said Chad Niell Tiger Correctional Services’ Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Our consistent company growth has meant that our team has also grown to be able to meet the increased needs of our current and new business partners. Being recognized as an inaugural member of the Build 100 list is an honor that we share with our team and our customers who have helped us to achieve this recognition.
Inc. unveilded the full Build 100 list in its March 2014 issue, and on its affiliate website TheBuildNetwork.com. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved employee growth in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Companies founded after 2008, or those with a current U.S. workforce smaller than 85 employees, were not considered. In addition, all Build 100 companies have agreed to participate in a year-long research initiative studying the key drivers of sustained growth.
"Seventy-two percent of all new U.S. jobs are created by 1 percent of companies," says Inc. economist-in-residence Gary Kunkle. "The Build 100 represents that top 1 percent of that 1 percent. They should be celebrated, but they must also be studied so that we can better understand — and replicate — the decisions, priorities, investments, and strategies that helped them grow."
