Let’s face it, many of us know the names of the major businesses and corporations in the Greater Kansas City Area. After all, Fortune 500 companies frequent most major job fairs as well as college campuses. But what is the hiring rate with the Big Five-Hundreds and how much job security can you count on during your time with them? Large corporations have their place in the employment market and they can provide a beneficial work environment for many job seekers. But for those who are unsure of the big corporate adventure, it should be known that there are many employment opportunities in Kansas City with small to mid-sized companies.
Did you know that 97% of all businesses in Kansas City are actually small? In fact, in 2012 small businesses created 63% of the new jobs available across the United States. For Kansas City, that means that 48,757 businesses are each employing 100 individuals or less (according to an analysis of Census Bureau data performed by the Kansas City Business Journal). Mid-sized businesses are prospering as well. Mid-sized companies are responsible for 34% of the jobs in this nation. In fact, a Fisher College study from 2007-2010 discovered that mid-sized companies are adding over 2 million jobs. Larger companies are noted as cutting over 3 million jobs. There is job security to be gained in a small business and this is where a staffing agency in Kansas City can help.
