The number is up from two years ago.

Are you handing out year-end bonuses this year?

If so, you have lots of company, Employee Benefit News reports.

Among small businesses, about 64 percent of owners say they plan such rewards this year. The statistic comes from a November 2016 survey conducted by SurePayroll, an online payroll service provider. 

The number is up significantly from 2014, when only 52 percent of owners were planning holiday bonuses.

Just under half (49 percent) will also give gifts to their employees, according to SurePayroll.

Small-business owners are feeling better about the nation’s economic condition, according to the survey. Three-quarters of those surveyed said they were optimistic. That was compared with 68 percent a year ago.

Employee Benefit News quoted Andy Roe, general manager for SurePayroll, saying: “Aside from last month when optimism was fairly low, optimism and more specifically profits have been steady.” 

Now, he said, small-business owners are “rewarding their employees accordingly.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
