Are you handing out holiday bonuses this year?

If so, you have lots of company, Employee Benefit News reports.

Among small businesses, about 64 percent of owners say they plan such rewards this year. The statistic comes from a November 2016 survey conducted by SurePayroll, an online payroll service provider.

The number is up significantly from 2014, when only 52 percent of owners were planning holiday bonuses. Just under half (49 percent) will also give gifts to their employees, according to SurePayroll.

Now, he said, small-business owners are “rewarding their employees accordingly.”
