Announcing the Winners of the Fourth Annual ZipRecruiter Small Business Awards

Today we’re thrilled to announce the winners of our Fourth Annual Small Business Awards.

We reviewed submissions from small businesses hailing from a variety of industries, including tourism, finance, and food services. One winning company was chosen in each of three categories and awarded a free year of ZipRecruiter, allowing them to quickly connect with highly relevant candidates:

PinPoint Solutions (Greenville, S.C.) Winner, Growth & Success

Submission criteria: Experienced over 5% growth, is consistently profitable, and has grown workforce in the past year.

Assessment: Since its inception in 2006, the company has more than quadrupled its headcount and evolved from a contingency recruiting team into a full-service HR solutions firm, all while maintaining its close-knit, engaged office culture.

G&C Plumbing and Heating (Franklin, Mass.) Winner, Delighting Customers

Submission criteria: Positive engagement on social media, Yelp page is full of positive reviews, and goes above & beyond to satisfy customers.

Assessment: From educating customers on their plumbing systems to helping with small jobs outside of their scope of work (like tightening a loose handle on a bathroom vanity or bringing the newspaper to the front door), the team at G&C Plumbing and Heating is dedicated to consistently providing customers with quality experiences.   

Solstice (Homer, N.Y.): Winner, ZipRecruiter Founders Award for Tech Innovation

Submission criteria: Launched a great new product in the past year, solves business problems using tech, and uses innovation to help business.
