A lot of small businesses apparently had a good 2014. And they’re looking to grow during the early part of this year.
That’s the crux of a new report from SurePayroll, the company’s February Small Business Scorecard. The ScoreCard focuses on so-called “micro-businesses” with between 1 and 10 employees. But the average business represented has about 6 employees, SurePayroll says.
The Small Business Scorecard also measures the small business Optimism Outlook. And the results indicate that 77 percent of small businesses are generally optimistic at this time this year.
