Small businesses operate in an increasingly competitive market, especially with rising minimum wages and a growing number of laws related to workers’ rights to stable schedules and paid leave. Proactively taking steps such as raising wages, providing scheduling that works for your employees and your business, and streamlining operations can help your business provide exceptional customer service and enable you to readily adapt to market- and legislation-based changes. While raising wages and offering more expansive health and retirement benefits aren’t always possible for every small business right away, every employer can take steps to prioritize employee engagement. Employee turnover can be a financial burden to your business.
That sounds easy to say, but where do you even start? In our new toolkit, Good Jobs, Good Business, Pacific Community Ventures offers practical help small business owners create jobs that boost the bottom line.
