Cross Country Home Services Wins Inc. Magazine Award for Job Creation
Home warranty company ranks fourth in insurance industry category
Cross Country Home Services, Inc. (CCHS), one of the country's leading providers of home warranty products and maintenance plans, has been honored with a 2013 Inc. Hire Power Award.
The second annual awards from Inc. Magazine recognize private companies that are leading the way in creating American jobs. CCHS, based in Sunrise, Fla., with a second location in Anderson, S.C., is credited with creating 58 jobs in 18 months within their two facilities. CCHS employs more than 600 employees at its Sunrise headquarters and its Anderson customer care facility.
"We are proud to be able to share our company's success by adding jobs to our local communities," said CCHS CEO Joseph Incandela. "Our talented leadership team has made CCHS a great place to work."
The Hire Power awards will be featured in the November issue of Inc. Magazine. Get the full list online. Honorees are also invited to a reception and awards ceremony at the Marines' Memorial Club & Hotel in San Francisco, Calif., on November 12.
"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 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."
It is the latest accolade for CCHS, which was honored Sept. 30 with a Golden Bridge Award for its work with veterans. Through its Operation Appliance Aid program, the company has donated more than 30 appliances to 14 military families around the country. Earlier this month, two CCHS executives -- President Sandra Finn and Chief Financial Officer Tami Thraum -- were named finalists for Female Executive of the Year in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business. Winners will be announced next month.
