HOUSTON, TEXAS – December 12, 2012: MicroSeismic, Inc. (MicroSeismic) is featured in the inaugural ranking of Inc.’s Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that generated the most jobs in the past three years.
MicroSeismic grew its headcount by 345% from 2008 to 2011, placing it 6th in the energy industry among private business job creators and just outside the Top 100 across all industries.
“We’re thrilled with this announcement. Our growth validates that customers are finding real value using our technology,” said Greg Burns, Vice President of Human Resources. “This achievement is recognition that our team’s innovative approach to microseismic monitoring goes above and beyond helping our clients achieve their goals.”
The Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.’s December/January issue, as well as the brand’s web site, www.inc.com.
“The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 – an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession,” explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “And it isn’t just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list.”
