New York, NY (Oct. 25, 2013) – California-based Meathead Movers was featured in the second annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.

Meathead Movers generated 45 jobs of a total workplace of 148 employees between January 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013, placing them eighth amongst the top moving and logistics companies in the U.S.

Meathead Movers is a San Luis Obispo-based moving and storage company focused on providing well-paying employment to student athletes working their way through school, while also mentoring young employees with skills and experience that will serve them their entire professional careers.

“I believe in hire power,” said Meathead Movers co-founder and CEO Aaron Steed. “Sustainable job creation is the lifeblood of the American economy and I appreciate Inc Magazine recognizing the efforts of all the companies who strive to create opportunity for others, often at the expense of higher personal profits for the owners."

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, combined, created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. The numbers become even more amazing when you look closer. The top job creator, Universal Services of America, added 14,240 employees to a workforce of 35,000; second-place Vivint added 1,943 to a workplace of 6,496, and third-place Heartland Dental Care added 1,759 to a total 4,965. These small to mid-sized companies and others like Meathead Movers could hold the key to restoring America’s economic vitality.

Inc Magazine“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,” said 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.”

Meathead Movers is among the 437 private growth companies honored by the Hire Power Awards, leading the way in creating more American jobs. While the honorees are found across the country in 25 categories, industries with the most Hire Power companies include health, financial services, software, human resources and IT services. States with the most honorees include California, Florida, Texas, Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Utah.

An award ceremony, sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, will be held to honor Meathead Movers and other honorees on November 12, 2013, in San Francisco.

“At Bank of America Merrill Lynch, we understand the vital role of small and mid-sized businesses in the local economy,” said George Smith, head of Business Banking, Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “And we are proud to partner with Inc. to sponsor the Hire Power Awards to recognize these business leaders.”

The Inc. Hire Power Awards are for U.S.-based, private companies, both for-profit and non-profit. Companies must have been founded in 2011 or earlier and have employed at least 10 full-time U.S.-based employees as of December 31, 2012. Companies must also complete the Employee Verification Report. Top award finalists may also be asked to provide their 2012 EEO Employer Information Report.

Award categories include most jobs created in the U.S., most jobs created by state, most jobs created by industry and highest employee growth percentage. Companies featured in Inc.’s November issue represent the top tier winners for the Higher Power Award and a complete list of the winners can be found on www.Inc.com.
