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.

  • We have often spoken to the benefits of working with a PEO to help improve employee retention rates.  Whatever path a small business owner chooses to retain employees, it makes sense to check out Employee Retention – How to Retain Employees on the Wall Street Journal website.  Their bullet list includes the following:
  •   Offering great benefits
  •   Providing small perks
  •   Use of contests and incentives
  •   Conducting “stay” Interviews
  •   Promoting from within
  •   Fostering employee development
  •   Creating open communication
  •   Management involvement
  •   Communicating your mission
  •   Offering financial rewards
  •   Letting employees know what you expect
  •   Hiring an HR professional

All of these make great sense, but of course we submit that hiring a PEO makes far more sense than hiring an HR professional who would likely not have all tools needed to help your business grow.  A fully staffed PEO can do just that as well as address all of the other needs listed.
