1.Bigger individual impact – Show off how much their contribution will matter.

While being part of a large company can be exciting, it’s hard to look at a business outcome and say, “Yes, I did that.” In small companies, employees can easily identify their personal impact. This is a point of pride for many and a significant advantage you can tout when talking to prospective candidates. If your small business has a strong mission, use it to entice employees, no matter what you do. Company missions that go beyond selling a product or service resonate with candidates and give employees a sense of pride in their work.
