Inc. Hire Power Awards Honors Abbyson Living for Creating Jobs

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - October 29, 2013) - Abbyson Living featured in the 2nd annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past 18 months.

Abbyson Living generated 54 jobs from January 1st, 2012 to June 30th, 2013, placing it among the top 100 private business job creators in the country within the Consumer Products and Services industry.

"We are very proud to be contributors to the economic growth of our region and our country and honored to be named to this list of job-creating companies," Yavar Rafieha, president of Abbyson Living, said.   

"We have been in a rapid growth phase and without dedicated and talented people, we are unable to deliver our high quality furnishings," Doddy Rafieha, senior vice president of Abbyson Living, added. "We definitely expect our hiring trend to continue, especially next year."

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that only 222,000 full-time jobs were added in 2012 -- compare those numbers to the honorees of the Inc. magazine's Hire Power Awards, which created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. These small to mid-sized companies and others just like Abbyson Living could hold the key 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 for a second time," Eric Schurenberg, editor-in-chief of Inc., said. "The Hire Power Awards are the only awards that single out job creators. We think it's fitting to pay tribute to company founders 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." 

An award ceremony, sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, will take place November 12, 2013 in San Francisco.
