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.
Competition for employees can make it tough for businesses to find workers to fill vacancies. In today’s tight labor market, many more companies are open to hiring individuals with a criminal record. There may be some benefits to this decision too.
According to the 300-plus business owners who responded to our recent survey on the workforce challenges affecting their business, it appears that employee engagement is not a problem for most. Some 87% of respondents said they ‘strongly agree’ or ‘somewhat agree’ with the statement “the staff in my business are committed and engaged.” A further 87% of respondents believe that “employees in my business have opportunities to learn and grow.”
