AvePoint honored as one of America’s top job creators over the last 18 months

Jersey City, New Jersey — November 8, 2013AvePoint, the leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions for social enterprise collaboration platforms, announced today it has been named an Inc. magazine Inc. Hire Power Awards winner for the second consecutive year. AvePoint increased US-based jobs by 43 percent from January 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013, placing it among the top five private business job creators within the state of New Jersey.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized as a Hire Power Awards winner and top job creator because it validates one of the initiatives we’ve been pushing at AvePoint – to continue to invest in our employees,” said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, AvePoint. “Even when a stalling economy caused many organizations to slow their hiring processes, AvePoint continued to look for the best and brightest, because it’s those terrific employees that help to create the products that our customers know and trust.”

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that only 222,000 full-time jobs were added in 2012 – compare those numbers to the honorees of the Inc. magazine’s Hire Power Awards, which created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. AvePoint is among the 437 private growth companies that are Hire Power Awards honorees, leading the way in creating more American jobs. While the honorees are found across the country in numerous industry verticals, industries with the most Hire Power companies include health, financial services, software, human resources, and IT services.

“For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work for a second time,” says Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Inc. “The Hire Power Awards are the only awards that single out job creators. 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.”
