Highlights from the report:



  • A whopping 70% of small businesses -- and 61% of large companies -- expect their business performance to improve in 2013.

  • Companies are planning to invest in new talent to grow their business with 15% more companies planning to hire in 2013 than in 2012.

  • The number of organizations hiring employees has consistently risen, with 2012 growth exceeding original expectations by 12%.

  • In 2012, small business wage growth increased significantly, demonstrating the little guy is competing with large companies for skilled employees.
