FlexPrint Named to the Inc. Magazine Build 100 List with Five-year Job Growth of 384%
Monday, December 02, 2013
NEW YORK - Inc. magazine named FlexPrint, Inc. 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 Coyote Logistics (3,228% workforce growth), HubSpot (709%), and Smilebuilderz (639%), 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.
“72 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.”
“To be in this group is something everyone at FlexPrint should be very proud of. Our culture and intense focus is making a difference,” said Frank Gaspari, CEO of FlexPrint, Inc. “I’m incredibly grateful for our entire team and what we’ve accomplished. We are committed to aggressively improving this trend”
Inc. will unveil the full Build 100 list in its March 2014 issue and on its affiliate website TheBuildNetwork.com in early 2014. 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.
