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.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
