However, as a small business you also have truly unique perks that you bring to the table. The key to attracting employees to work at your company is identifying what you bring to the table that a large business cannot.

  • Flexibility. As a small business, you can offer more flexibility than a larger company. What benefits can you offer that a large employer can’t? Can an employee leave to pick up their child from school or possible telecommute one day a week? Highlight these opportunities to attract top talent.
  • Job Diversity. At a small company, individuals take on more responsibility. The job scope of a middle-manager at a small business may include duties reserved for C-Level management at a larger firm.
  • Empowerment and Loyalty. Often in a large company employees feel like a cog in the wheel. Small companies can empower their employees which encourages ownership of the job, loyalty to the employer and personal pride in their company. It’s their baby too.
