MYOB Business Monitor survey reveals more women own and operate small and medium businesses

The latest MYOB Business Monitor, which surveys more than 1,000 SMEs, reveals that 41 percent of small and medium businesses in New Zealand are owned and operated by women. 

This is compared to three years ago, when 37 percent of SMEs were owned by women. 

The survey also indicates that women hire more staff than their male counterparts, with 33 percent of females having one or more employees, compared to 29 percent of males. 

"This is fantastic news for local job seekers," says MYOB national manager, enterprise division, Allison Fairkettle.
