FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WARWICK – April 18, 2008 – Providence Business News has once again ranked Brave River Solutions among Rhode Island’s top IT employers in its 2008 Book of Lists.
This is Brave River’s second consecutive appearance in the book’s Regional Information Technology Employers category, which is ranked by number of local IT workers. As a growing business technology solutions provider, Brave River continues to build upon their loyal client base and increased their staff size by 25% in 2007.
“The management of Brave River Solutions is deeply committed to our customer’s success as well as our employee’s well-being. These are the reasons we have a lengthy list of successful long-term client relationships, supported by near-zero staff turnover,” said John Leighton, who has been with the company for over seven years.
According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, Brave River’s growth and success is right on target. Companies are increasingly looking to technology to drive their revenue, and the introduction of new technologies and applications in the workplace is projected to lead to faster-than-average employment growth in the computer technology industry.
Employment is expected to grow at a fast-paced rate of 16 percent over the 2006-2016 decade. And with the explosive growth of eCommerce and the capacity of the Internet to create new relationships with customers, the role of IT will continue to evolve and drive the demand for technical workers.
As more and more companies realize that IT can help them perform better, Brave River will continue to provide the resources and expertise necessary to facilitate the ever-growing needs of technology in the workplace.
