True Hire wins the Weatherhead 100 award

Uniontown, OH – October 6, 2016 – True Hire, a full-service employment, volunteer and nanny screening provider, has been selected as one of Northeast Ohio’s fastest-growing companies.

Every year, the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University honors the top fastest-growing 100 companies in Northeast Ohio with awards in three different categories: Upstart, Weatherhead 100, and Centurion. The prestigious Upstart award recognizes fast-growing companies with 15 or fewer employees or net sales of less than $5 million last year.

The elite group of companies selected as winners are the best example of leadership, growth and success in the region, according to the Weatherhead 100 website.
