Small Business Hiring Up According to TriNet SMBeat

TriNet’s monthly report reflects 20% increase in hiring and 14% decrease in turnover.

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (February 9, 2011) Small businesses appear to be in hiring mode compared to a year ago, according to the SMBeat report released this month by TriNet, a leading provider of human resources services for small businesses. Hiring rates in January increased 20 percent above rates from 2010. SMBeat tracks payroll and hiring movements within TriNet’s base of approximately 3,000 small technology and services company customers.

Key findings:

  • Improved Hiring Plans – Hiring rates are 20 percent above levels one year ago among the white-collar workforce in the technology, financial services, and professional services.
  • Pocket change - Average compensation increased a mere 1.7 percent from January 2010 to 2011, but coupled with reduced FICA taxes, the average employee in report has over $3,000 of additional spending power – a positive indicator for U.S. consumer spending.
  • Employees not budging - Voluntary and involuntary attrition was down 14 percent from January 2010 indicating fewer layoffs and more employees remaining with their current companies.

“The January increase in hiring rates reflects the general level of confidence among TriNet clients,” said Jimmy Franzone, TriNet’s vice president of corporate development. “Increases this early in the year are an important indicator of future hiring rates, as they reflect new budgets in place for the coming year.”
