As a Small Company, what benefits can I offer to attract and keep good employees?
While working for small companies offer many advantages that big companies don’t, such as more freedom and growth opportunity, their size and lack of capital make it impossible for them to offer highly developed benefit packages. Be sure that the benefits you are offering are ones that your employees want. Just because the company up the street offers childcare doesnt mean the five childless people working for you would have any interest in that option. Survey your employees regularly, even informally, to see what they appreciate and what they would like in the future. Offer what you can, and be sure to fit the interests of your employees. Potential employees know that the benefits offered by small employers are less than larger companies. Health coverage is very important to most employees. Other important benefits include: vacation, sick leave, 401K and other benefits tailored to the needs of your workforce. Often, small employers may consider offering pre-public stock options. This
