Universal Services Of America Wins Inc. Magazine's Hire Power Award













SANTA ANA, Calif., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Services of America, one of the largest providers of security and janitorial services in the U.S., has placed number one on Inc. Magazine's new Hire Power Awards list. The list, which included 100 private businesses located across the U.S., identified the top companies that are adding jobs and helping to rebuild the economy.

Between 2007-2011 Universal added 17,330 employees to their workforce, which was a growth rate of 81%. The company employees over 20,000 people across the U.S. and many of them are veterans and those who were laid off during the economic downturn. Universal was the only security and janitorial company to make the list.

"This award is a testament to all of the hard work everyone at Universal has put in over the last several years to grow our organization and create new opportunities for great people to join our team," said Steve Jones, Co-CEO/COO of Universal Services of America. "At Universal we are very passionate about our pursuit to be exceptional and that starts with hiring exceptional people."

"One of the greatest things as a company owner is to realize all of the hard work it takes from every member of our organization in order for Universal to receive accolades for great accomplishments," said Brian Cescolini, Chairman/Co-CEO of Universal Services of America. "Being recognized nationally for being a top job creator in the U.S. is the ultimate honor. We are pleased to be part of an industry that can provide jobs and opportunities to so many people."

The Hire Power Awards were created by Inc. Magazine this year as way to honor job creators who rebuild the economy by putting Americans back to work. Companies who made the list will be honored at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, December 6, 2012.
