Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC), a post-closing services provider based in Palm Harbor, Florida, has added another entry to its list of achievements: earning Inc. Magazine’s Hire Power Award for its contribution to creating more American jobs.
NTC took a spot in Inc.‘s December 2012 Hire Power Awards list, a celebration of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States. NTC earned the seventh place among real estate companies, posting three-year growth of 85 percent, including the addition of 136 new jobs.
According to a release, NTC now employs 325 total workers.
The company also celebrated strides made in Employ Tampa Bay, an economic initiative promoting businesses in the area to help improve employment in the region. The initiative posits that if each of the companies in the Tampa Bay area were to hire at least one additional employee, an estimated 116,000 more residents would be put to work. So far, Tampa Bay companies have added 2,425 jobs.
In addition, NTC won the Tampa Bay Times’ Top Workplaces award two years in a row.
“We strive to employ hard-working and dedicated individuals in our area who can contribute to NTC, our clients and the industry,” said CEO John Hillman. “It has been a rewarding experience to see the economic growth we have helped foster for both Tampa Bay and the nation.”
Hillman also noted that NTC’s community service work increases with every hire as employees become involved with the company’s charity work.
“Hiring more employees means higher corporate social responsibility,” he said. “Our volunteer activities are very important to us.”
