We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, hiring is key to fast-growing companies. When your company is growing exponentially, you need a team that is passionate about the future of your business and the only way to select the right employees is by understanding what makes them successful.

For the last two years, Hireology has had customers on the Inc. 500 list and we are confident that these companies are able to reach such impressive magnitudes due to their reliable staff.

Hireology wants to recognize our customers: Datto Backup, HUMAN Healthy Vending, and The Joint, who have been named to the 2013 Inc. magazine’s Inc. 500ª.

Providing a comprehensive look at America’s fastest-growing private companies, the 2013 Inc. 500 | 5000ª list measured honorees’ revenue growth from 2009 through 2012. Additionally, Inc. required each company named to the list be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independently owned.

‘To be named to the Inc. 500 | 5000ª list is an immense honor,’ said Adam Robinson, Hireology co-founder and CEO. ‘To achieve such a ranking is testament to the ability of each and every one of these companies’ employees, and we are grateful for the opportunity to assist many of these companies make hiring decisions that will ensure their continued success.’

Datto Backup, Human Healthy Vending, and The Joint, are among the Inc. 500ª companies that have implemented Hireology’s Selection Managerª. Through the assistance of Hireology’s applicant management capabilities, interview guides and scoring, skills testing, and verification services, these companies have found great hiring success.

For the second consecutive year, Datto Backup Inc., a hardware-based on-site and off-site backup and disaster recovery solutions provider, has been named to the Inc. 500ª list. With the assistance of Hireology’s selection management platform, Datto has been able to improve their hiring results and further cement their position as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States.

‘Hireology’s interview guides and hiring tools have been an vital addition to our selection process,” said Nicole Kenega, Human Resources Executive for Datto. ‘Its solution enables us to deploy a company-wide selection platform that adds instant value.’

Los Angeles-based HUMAN Healthy Vending, America’s premier healthy foods distribution platform, implemented Hireology after experiencing rapid expansion. With over 1,500 healthy vending machines and micromarkets across the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada, and more than 200 partners and franchisees, the Hireology platform was a much needed addition to the hiring process.

“The only bad thing about Hireology is that every time I login it reminds me how much time, money and resources we wasted before signing up! Seriously – I kick myself,’ said Sean Kelly, CEO of HUMAN Healthy Vending. ‘On a good note, using the service is an absolute no-brainer and has streamlined recruiting for us ten-fold. Phenomenal.”

The Joint, Corp. recently made the decision to use Hireology’s Selection Managerª. After seeing the difference Hireology’s suite of selection tools made in the hiring process of chiropractors and office assistants, The Joint recommended that each of their 200 franchise locations begin utilizing the platform.

‘When hiring, we’re not only looking for someone with the necessary skills, but we want each of our new hires to embrace the values of The Joint and exceed the expectations of each and every client,’ said Dr. Shawn Allen, chiropractor and operations trainer, The Joint.
