Three Great Ideas to Help Small Business Employees Have a Happy New Year

I. Focus On Employee Benefits

One of the most important topics you should consider in 2019, when it comes to happy employees, is employee benefits. And according to the experts at CPA Practice Advisor, employees are more concerned about their fringe benefits than they are about extra pay.

II. Master Your Employee Motivation Skills

Another important topic to consider is your ability to motivate employees. With a widely diverse workforce that includes 5 generations, communication and motivation are more challenging than ever. And even the smallest businesses face these challenges. Here are some great tips for keeping your workforce motivated.

III. Commit to Diversity

According to, committing to diversity is at the top of the list for New Year resolutions in 2019. And we believe a diverse team can help your business grow, reaching into areas of opportunity that you may miss if everyone on your team thinks the same way. Find out how committing to diversity can help your small business.

And a Great Idea to Keep Yourself Motivated in 2019

Find balance. As a small business owner, you work hard and you wear many hats. You sacrifice time away from friends, family and fun and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself hating your job. And that’s really bad news when you are the boss.

Take a few minutes to look at the tasks keeping you tied to your desk late at night. Determine what you can outsource, what can be streamlined, and what can be eliminated altogether.
