Hiring a new employee is an especially big deal as a small-business owner. If you are thinking about adding to your staff, you might wonder whether others are doing the same.

More small-business owners say they hired or plan to hire in 2013 than have already or expect to reduce their work force, according to a recent survey from business-management software company Sage. The survey, conducted in May, polled 973 businesses. Here are other highlights of its findings:

  • More midsized companies, which Sage defines as having between 20 and 99 employees, will be adding to their ranks than the smaller businesses, with 19 or fewer employees.
  • More than half of the smaller businesses surveyed plan to keep their headcount steady in 2013.
  • The jobs that small-business owners are generating are primarily fulltime.
  • Only three in 10 businesses that have already hired or plan to hire this year are adding part-time employees.

For more on small-business hiring and its economic impact, take a look at the infographic from Irvine, Calif.-based Sage below.
