Celebrate National Small Business Week!
Today kicks off National Small Business Week and at Morrison we are celebrating the small businesses that are a crucial part of our economy.
We are a small business and many of our clients are small businesses. We love the creativity, tenacity, and entrepreneurship that small businesses represent and even though we're thankful for them throughout the year, having an excuse to celebrate small businesses is an added bonus!
According to the US Small Business Administration, small business make up 64 percent of new private sector jobs, 99.7 percent of U.S. employer firms, and 42.9 percent of private sector payroll. Small businesses truly are the backbone of America.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of National Small Business Week, which was originally conceived under President Kennedy's administration in 1963. How will you be supporting and celebrating small businesses this week?
