WorkCompOne is a Proud Amplification Partner of Small Business Saturday

WorkCompOne today announced its participation in this year’s Small Business Saturday on November 24, 2012. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to strengthening the community by supporting local, independently owned small businesses.

American Express, founder of Small Business Saturday, is preparing for the third annual initiative. Small Business Saturday falls on the day after Black Friday, traditionally the kickoff of the holiday season and a major shopping day for large retailers. American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010 to help small businesses gain more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year. In 2011, millions of consumers shopped at small businesses on Small Business Saturday.

WorkCompOne recognizes the importance of supporting small business because of the jobs they help create and the culture they instill in local communities. According to the Small Businesses Association, small businesses nationwide have accounted for 65% of net new jobs created over the past 17 years and represent 99.7% of all employer firms.
