Columbus region small businesses poised for growth


Small businesses around the country are beginning to believe in the economic turnaround, and that includes the area around Columbus, Ohio, where 75 percent of small businesses are planning on adding to their staffs in the upcoming year, according to a Columbus Chamber study.

Of the small businesses looking to hire in the Columbus region, the survey found 50 percent of these companies want to add between one and five employees.

More than 38 percent of small businesses in Columbus sad they are feeling better about hiring because of their location/market access, while more than 32 percent believe growth will be driven by a more stable economy.

“Small businesses are a major force in the Columbus region’s economic development, accounting for the majority of companies located here and nearly half of employment in the region,” said Michael Dalby, president and CEO of the Columbus Chamber. “It’s beneficial to hear directly from these businesses about their challenges and opportunities, so we can better assist them and help them grow.”

While small businesses in the Columbus region are looking to expand, they still need to ensure they are protected with business insurance policies in case problems arise that could put the brakes on their plans.
