Small Business Hiring Trends in 140 Characters Max

On February 28, Intuit will hold an Intuit Twitter Town Hall to provide a sneak peek at the February Intuit Small Business Employment Index, in advance of the announcement on March 1. The live Town Hall discussion on Twitter brings together two key sources that will provide insight into the health of our overall economy through the Index’s small business employment data: Renowned economist Susan Woodward and Vice President of Intuit Employee Management Solutions Cameron Schmidt will provide expert analysis on the latest small business employment trends and their impact on small businesses. The Twitter Town Hall will then open the discussion up for a question and answer session with media (you can think of it as a mini press conference that takes place on Twitter).

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, small businesses with fewer than 20 employees continue to be one of the most economically important groups in the nation, making up 87 percent of all U.S. employer firms and employing nearly 20 million people. To provide timely reporting on small business hiring, Intuit created its monthly Small Business Employment Index, which provides nearly real-time insights into small business trends in regards to employment, compensation, and average number of hours worked.

To check out the Twitter Town Hall, on February 28 at 11 a.m. PDT/2 p.m. EDT, and follow the hashtag #SMBIndex on Twitter. We’ll be tweeting from @Intuit. We look forward to hearing what you think of it!
