San Antonio small business jobs on the rise

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

According to a new survey, San Antonio small business jobs are increasing.

SurePayroll, the online alternative in payroll services, recently released December results for its monthly Small Business Scorecard showing a promising trend of small business owners expressing optimism about the economy. SurePayroll’s Small Business Scorecard optimism score climbed to 63 percent in December compared to 53 percent in the previous two months, and up from only 33 percent in September.

“We saw caution in 2011, but the leading indicators suggest 2012 looks positive,” said SurePayroll CEO and President Michael Alter. “The sun is on the horizon. Optimism is higher, 50 percent plan to hire and wages look to go up.”

Year-over-year Scorecard data shows a hiring decline of 3.2 percent and wages down 0.8 percent. The South saw positive growth in hiring (0.5 percent) and wages (0.4 percent) over the course of the year. The rest of the country was in the red, aside from a slight wages increase (0.1 percent) in the Northeast.

For December 2011, the Scorecard, which also includes hiring and wage data for the top 35 U.S. metropolitan statistical areas, reveals month-over-month declines in nationwide hiring (-0.2 percent) and wages (-0.3 percent). Regionally, it was a similar story, with the Midwest, Northeast and West showing modest declines across the board, and the South remaining flat in hiring and down slightly in wages.

Despite the sluggishness of 2011, the SurePayroll Small Business Scorecard’s optimism survey shows some very positive signs for 2012.

  • Along with optimism being up to 63 percent, the highest it has been since June, the survey also shows 50 percent of small business owners planning to hire in 2012.
  • Meanwhile, 56 percent plan to increase wages for some or all of their employees in the new year.
  • Only 2 percent plan to cut wages.

BoA reaches its goal, boosts number of finance jobs in San Antonio

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Bank of America recently announced it has reached its goal of boosting the number of finance jobs in San Antonio and around the nation.

Bank of America has doubled the number of Merrill Edge Financial Solutions Advisors (FSAs) to more than 1,000 nationwide by the end of 2011. With the addition of more than 280 new hires across Texas and Florida, more than 1,200 FSAs are now working in banking centers throughout the United States or in the Merrill Edge Advisory Center.

BoA has also increased finance jobs in Florida.

The hires are part of Bank of America’s overall commitment to enhance the solutions and guidance it offers to Preferred customers — those with investable assets of $50,000 to $250,000. These FSAs will provide the financial solutions and guidance customers need to help them manage their banking and investment needs and stay in better control of their finances.

“At the beginning of the year, we committed ourselves to enhancing our services and offerings to meet the complex needs of our Preferred customers,” said Dean Athanasia, Preferred and Small Business Banking executive at Bank of America. “By increasing the number of FSAs in banking centers and in the Merrill Edge Advisory Center, our customers have access to best-in-class banking and investment solutions, unmatched access and convenience and the availability of specialists when and where they prefer.”

Preferred customers are among the fastest-growing segments in the financial services industry. Bank of America does business with more than 8 million Preferred customers and has unrivaled insight into their financial needs. According to the Merrill Edge Report, some of the top priorities for Preferred customers include wanting a better retirement than their parents (85 percent), having access to both banking and investing solutions (73 percent) and maintaining the ability to track and manage their money (72 percent).

Nearly 65 FSAs added in Florida banking centers will serve customers in markets including Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale and Sarasota. In addition, approximately 155 FSAs were hired in the Merrill Edge Advisory Center in Jacksonville, bringing the FSA statewide total to more than 350. In Texas, more than 60 FSAs have been added to banking centers in 20 cities, including Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.

Initiative to help veterans find management jobs in San Antonio

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

A new initiative signed by President Obama will connect veterans with management jobs in San Antonio, among other jobs.

Obama announced executive orders Nov. 7 to give tax credits to employers who hire post-9/11 veterans and wounded warriors, as well as enhanced career counseling and related services for veterans.

The president, flanked by veterans association representatives in the White House Rose Garden, expressed concern that unemployment continues to increase among post-9/11 veterans, despite the skills and attributes they have to offer.

The initiative is also expected to help connect veterans with Tampa jobs.
Today’s 9/11 generation has performed heroically in some of the world’s most dangerous places, he said, and “done everything that we’ve asked of them.”

“We ask our men and women in uniform to leave their families and their jobs, and risk their lives to fight for our country,” he said. “And the last thing they should have to do is fight for a job when they come home.

“And that’s why we’re here today,” Obama continued, “to do everything in our power to see to it that America’s veterans have the opportunities that they deserve and that they have earned.”

To incentivize employers to hire them, the president announced a new Returning Heroes Tax Credit that will provide companies up to $5,600 in credits for each unemployed veteran they hire. Similarly, a new Wounded Warriors Tax Credit offers employers up to $9,600 for each veteran with service-connected disabilities they hire.

Obama also announced new initiatives designed to make it easier for veterans to find jobs.

Effective Nov. 7, post-9/11 veterans can download a Veteran Gold Card that entitles them to six months of personalized case management, assessments and counseling services at roughly 3,000 One-Stop Career Centers nationwide. This service, which makes good on a pledge Obama made during a speech at the Washington Navy Yard in August, could benefit more than 200,000 post-9/11 veterans, White House officials said.

In addition, the Labor Department launched an online tool Nov. 7, My Next Move for Veterans, where veterans can enter information about their military experience and skills to identify civilian careers that put that experience to use, the president explained. The site also offers information about salaries, apprenticeships, and other related education and training programs, officials said.

Meanwhile, a new job bank that also took effect Nov. 7 will help connect unemployed veterans to job openings at companies seeking to hire veterans, Obama said.
