lynda.com Ranked No. 1 Job Creator in Education by Inc. Magazine 
Online Learning Leader Tops Category in Inaugural Hire Power Awards 
CARPINTERIA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/12 --  Online learning
company lynda.com took top honors in the inaugural ranking of Inc.'s
Hire Power Awards, which recognizes the private businesses that have
generated the most jobs during the past three years. By attracting
candidates across the United States who share the company's vision of
helping people through offering a library of video tutorials on
software, creative and business topics, lynda.com filled nearly 200
jobs from 2008 to 2011, placing it at No. 1 among the eight private
business job creators noted by Inc. within the Education industry.  
"lynda.com has been aggressively hiring over the past three years to
keep pace with our rapid growth, which continues due to the high
demand for our learning library," said Monetta Williams, vice
president of Human Resources at lynda.com. "We are happy to receive
this award as the nearly 200 hires represent employees from all over
America who were attracted by our culture, benefits, and shared
passion for helping people learn." 
The inaugural Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America
Merrill Lynch, which is proud to recognize American companies that
have added a significant number of employees. Inc.'s Hire Power
Awards celebrate private companies at the forefront of American job
creation, giving these businesses the recognition they deserve. The
Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.'s December/January issue, as
well as on the magazine's website, www.inc.com. 
"The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs
in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 -- an amazing feat given
that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession,"
explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. "And it isn't just
the big guys who are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50
million in annual revenue make up nearly one third of the Hire Power
list."
