What is the biggest challenge you face as a small business? Answering that question now through June 16th, 2013 could win you a $10,000 grant in staffing services to build the team you need to grow your business, without growing your budget.
Small businesses play a critical role in the health of the U.S. economy, as they provide jobs for roughly half of the nation’s private workforce. Since the recession, however, many small businesses have been forced to do more with less, making it essential to get the most out of every dollar, every resource and, perhaps most importantly, every employee.
We conducted a survey to see which issues were top of mind owners of small businesses, classified by the Small Business Administration.
34% Worry about growing their business
30% Worry about the Affordable Care Act’s impact on costs
13% Worry that they won’t be able to find skilled talent
10% Worry about retaining top talent
30% Aren’t worried at all
