The 2010 Inc. 5000: Top 10 Job Creators
Ovations Food Services
Jobs added between 2006 and 2009: 3,500
Ovations Food Services manages food service operations for stadiums, ballparks, and convention centers. Karen Muros, the company's vice president of human resources, says much of the company’s hiring surge, which amounts to approximately 3,500 new hires in the past three years, is a result of a commitment to assuring compliance at their facilities. This has created a need to add more supervisors to their management structure, increase training positions, HR positions, and support managers, as well as create internal audit positions to provide checks and balances, says Muros.
