Small Business Advantage #5: Attracting Team Members

Small businesses don't have to take a back seat to larger organizations when recruiting top people. The small business advantages already discussed:

  1. Connecting people to purpose
  2. Effective communication
  3. Timely decision-making
  4. Customer intimacy

....when explained very carefully to all candidates, can provide a great draw to the most talented prospects.

BOTTOMLINE: It's important to recognize that many people who haven't worked in large companies may not understand these advantages. Yet for people who are experienced in larger organizations, the advantages will be obvious - and often quite welcome.
