The Women’s Presidents’ Organization released the results of its Economic Impact Survey which offers key statistics about women-owned businesses and women presidents in general.
According to the survey results, two out of three women presidents (65%) achieved positive growth during the first six months of 2013, with one out of two (50%) hiring new employees and nearly two out of three (63%) increasing employee salaries during that time. The majority of women presidents (76%) earn salaries of least $100,000 per year, and 28% of them received salary increases in 2013.
On the other hand, one out of two survey respondents believe that economic conditions are the biggest single threat to their businesses’ bottom-line growth in the near future. Also affecting their bottom-lines are hiring the right employees (32%) and competition (32%).
