New research from Entrex indicates that many small- and medium-size businesses expect to increase the size of their work force next year. Despite woeful economic conditions, midmarket companies are still looking to take on new staff.
Tom Kruczek, Executive Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College, offers this observation at his blog site:
As we watch the news or read the newspaper, we see examples of large corporations cutting back on everything from staffing, to marketing to R & D, which opens up opportunities for the entrepreneurial company. Now is truly a great time to launch a business.
When conventional wisdom turns completely negative, we are probably at the bottom. I would agree that now would be a good time to start a new business or as the study suggests, go to work for a small business.
