As a small business owner, you know that your success can depend not only on your ability to stay on top of the day-to-day work, but also on how well you can see what’s on the horizon. Detecting or failing to recognize an important trend can be the difference between a stellar year and one you might prefer to forget. That’s why Oasis, a Paychex® Company, conducted a survey of the top workforce challenges faced by over 300 small businesses in the U.S. Examining emerging workforce trends can help you, as a leader, make better decisions for your business.
For working parents, trying to find a balance between work obligations and family demands can be overwhelming and exhausting. Many struggle to receive the kind of workplace support they need to balance care for their families with doing their best at work. There is no one-size-fits-all prescription for what is right for all companies, however, it makes good business sense to see what changes you can make to cultivate a supportive environment for working parents.
Important yet time-consuming employee-related issues, such as hiring, payroll and benefits, take up about a quarter of all work time, according to 31% of the small business owners who participated in a recent survey conducted by Oasis, a Paychex® Company. And while 39% said they “spend too much time on workforce-related issues”—especially for those business owners earning less than $500,000 in revenue and who had been operating for fewer than 10 years. Some 83% said they still regard the time spent on HR and workforce issues to be a good investment.
