CHICAGO, Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- LaSalle Network, a Chicago-based staffing and recruiting firm, makes the 2010 Inc. 500/5000 Fastest Growing, Private Companies in America List for the fourth consecutive year. LaSalle joins the elite group of private companies to make the list in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010.
"We're very proud to be recognized on this prestigious list for the past four years," says Tom Gimbel, President and CEO, and native Chicagoan. "It's an honor to be acknowledged for our consistent growth and as one of the leading firms in our industry."
Despite the economic downturn, LaSalle has organically grown 26% since January 2010, compared to the same period last year, and 600% since 2001. In the past year, LaSalle invested $100,000 in training and development for current and future employees, increased top talent hiring, and expanded service offerings and locations.
"Hire hard-working, motivated people. Encourage employees to voice their ideas and concerns, and retain employees who are passionate about their candidates and clients," Gimbel says of his company's success.
Gimbel believes, however, superior employees cannot grow a business alone. "It is up to the Obama administration to put a sharper focus on the backbone of commerce in this country: the small business owner and entrepreneur," he says.
"These innovative and forward-thinking entrepreneurs are not only the ones creating solutions to consumers' needs, but they also create jobs," says Gimbel. "It is crucial for the government to invest in these mid and small sized private companies."
