Here are this week’s links to a few good stories that we found and selected because we feel they might add valuable insights and perspectives for small to medium size businesses.
- A few weeks ago, we spoke about the value proposition of using a PEO to help sort through the complexities of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and what it means for small businesses in Massachusetts (Storm Clouds Gather for Massachusetts Small Businesses as Federal Health Care Reform Moves Forward. Is There a Silver Lining?). Arlene Weintraub, writing for Entrepreneur Magazine advances the notion that working with a PEO may be a viable solution for not only PPACA, but for addressing the need that PEOs bring to the table when partnering with a small business. Read Bracing for Obamacare, Some Businesses Try PEOs to learn more.
- Trying to attract and recruit top talent is a challenge for every organization. Mark Kleiman writing for TLNT has some great suggestions in 10 Top Tips Tools and Techniques to Attract and Recruit Top Talent. All of them are worth considering. We found this piece through our friends at Exabyzness.
- Paul Shread writing for Time Magazine writes a brief but inspirational piece when he highlights quotes from ten leaders we all know and can learn from in Ten Quotes to Inspire Business Leaders. I particularly liked what Bill Gates had to say: “Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.” There is no better way to grow than living that message.
