SANTA ANA, Calif., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Services of America, one of the largest providers of security and janitorial services in the U.S., has again placed number one on the 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. This is the second year in a row that Universal has landed at the head of the list.
Universal employs over 35,000 people across the U.S., with many of them being veterans and those who were laid off during the economic downturn. They created over 14,000 jobs within the past year.
"I am extremely proud of our organization and all of the people who work so hard to manage our business and fuel our growth and expansion," said Steve Jones, CEO of Universal Services of America.
