Small Business Employment Index Surges in December
Largest Gain in Two Years Revealed; Global Fears Remain
The December CBIZ Small Business Employment Index (SBEI), a barometer for hiring trends among companies with 300 or fewer employees, increased by 1.75 percent throughout the past month, following an increase of .35 percent in November.
Today’s announcement follows ADP’s December jobs survey, which illustrated that the private sector added 325,000 jobs in December.
Philip Noftsinger, business unit president for CBIZ Payroll Services, explained, “Our Small Business Employment Index reported a 1.75 percent gain in distinct employee count for the month of December. This represents the largest increase in the index in two years as December 2009 offered a similar tally of 1.77 percent. Additionally, the positive movement in the index supports a continued improving trend in labor markets.”
Additional take-away points from the December data include:
At-a-glance: Of the companies surveyed, the data shows that 19 percent reported a decrease in employee headcount while 30 percent increased staffing. 51 percent of the companies involved in the survey maintained their number of employees.
Small business sector: Confidence among small business owners is increasing, with a sustained focus on demand and cost containment. If demand can continue to grow, even minimally, for our Main Street employers, we can expect continued positive growth numbers in the index.
What-to-watch: As employment begins to sustain a positive trend, this will be the best support for economic growth in the US. However, there are still very real concerns for global sustained growth, specifically in the European region and in China.
