74% of Jobs Created in Brazil in January Came from Small Companies

Small companyIn Brazil, micro and small companies were responsible for 74% of the 181,419 new official jobs created in January. The result is equivalent to growth 0.55% over the stock of jobs created in the previous month and exceeds the figure for January 2008 by 27%.

According to an analysis by the Sebrae (Brazilian Service of Support to Micro and Small Enterprises), companies that employ up to four people answered to 57.1% (103,590) of the new posts. Companies that employ between 5 and 19 people answered to 2.8% of the balance.

The percentage referring to small companies, which employ 20 to 99 workers, was 14.1%. The participation of medium and large companies was, respectively, 18% and 8% of the total.

The figures are in the General Records Office for Employment and Unemployment (Caged), published monthly by the Ministry of Labor and whose results help the government’s decision making process.

To the manager of the strategic management unit at the Sebrae, Raissa Rossiter, the net figure of jobs generated in January is a positive effect of the country’s return to growth.

According to her, this fact has been boosting companies of all sizes. “The return to dynamism in large companies, for example, triggers demand for goods and services from micro and small companies,” he said.
