Surveys had predicted the increase.

Small businesses, which put the brakes on hiring years ago, are finally starting to bring on more staff, The Associated Press reports.

The news agency cites a report from ADP, a payroll services company.

ADP found that in February, small businesses across the U.S. added 104,000. That was up from a monthly average of 60,000 in 2016.

Several surveys had predicted hiring increases in 2017, AP notes.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
