Buffalo, NY – August 2018 – Inc. magazine revealed that ESC Choice (“ESC”) a leading Professional Employer Organization (PEO) headquartered in Buffalo, NY, is No. 240 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000. This is ESC’s 7th time appearing on the Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest growing companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses.  Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

ESC’s honors for this year’s ranking included:

  • #240 Inc. 500
  • #8 Top Human Resource Companies
  • #23 Top NY Companies

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.” Ledbetter adds, “Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere three and a half percent have made the list seven times.”

“This is quite an honor,” says Greg Bauer, Founder & President of ESC.  “Once again, I must thank the people who work at ESC every day. This is a testament to their dedication to ESC and their commitment to our clients.”
