The Sunday Times best small companies to work for list has this week been published and yet again, even in these trying times, small companies show that even with recent job losses and pay cuts/freezes, employee engagement is key to a profitable future. The survey findings also show many similarities to what we see in all the employee satisfaction surveys we carry out at B2B International – your staff are not solely motivated by salary!
Looking at those companies in the top positions, most invested in training while others organised charity work or benefits other than salary to keep employees motivated. Communication was also key and was increased in an effort to encourage people to come up with cost-saving ideas. As a result, many of the firms that are staff focused are now in a better state of health and with a more engaged workforce comes confidence that they can deal with the future, no matter what it throws at them.
