Rural Sourcing Ranks #5 in U.S. Job Creation
ATLANTA, November 1, 2013 – Rural Sourcing, the leading domestic IT sourcing company focused on cost-effective onshore software development and support,was featured in the 2nd annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.
Rural Sourcing generated 73 jobs in the period from January 1st, 2012 through June 30th, 2013, placing it among the top 5 private business job creators within the state of Georgia and the top 20 job creators in the IT Services sector. “We have experienced firsthand the economic impact of Rural Sourcing’s tremendous growth here in Augusta. They’ve been a catalyst for the tech community and we look forward to their continued success,” commented Deke Copenhaver, Mayor of Augusta, Georgia.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that only 222,000 full-time jobs were added in 2012; however, it is impressive to note that the honorees of the Inc. magazine’s Hire Power Awards created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. These small to mid-sized companies and other just like RSI are essential to restoring America’s economic vitality.
“For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work,” 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 leaders 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.”

Hamilton, Rural Sourcing’s CEO.
