If you are reading this as a current small business owner, congratulations. Making it this far in one of the hardest times for any business in this decade is a cause for celebration. Being able to stay viable, even if your doors aren't open right now, is a feat that is only accomplished by smart thinking. Small business owners were forced to get nimble when it came to being in business. That is not a bad thing. Here’s why.

There are times when keeping the status quo is plenty good enough for keeping your business going. There is a process that needs to be followed to get things delivered to clients. That’s not a bad thing either. Although it should be regularly revisited to ensure efficiencies as you grow. Good employees should have what they need to stay put. No one wants to have to let a team member walk out the door who should be a fixture in your office for years to come. 

Small Business Owners See Positive Changes In This Pandemic 

This time in American history is causing a commotion in every sector of business, especially small business. Things needed to change, and perhaps you will realize that your small business is going to change for the better. You just have to look at some things that used to be and embrace what needs to change to make it better. 

Some things needed to change whether you liked them or not. For employees, that probably looked like arranging for your staff to work from home. Many small business owners had a hard time embracing remote workers if they were open to the idea at all. With stay-at-home orders in place, they didn’t have a choice. 

Since then, many small business owners have not only realized that remote work can work well but they’ve opened themselves up to the possibility that great talent can be utilized from anywhere. It’s a brand new day for a lot of small business owners who saw work-from-home through. Chances are it was a welcomed change for your employees as well. 

One of the main things highlighted at small businesses around the country was the glaring need to rethink healthcare benefits. For small business owners who were younger and relatively healthy, healthcare benefits weren’t really a big deal. Truth is, no one is really thinking too hard about their healthcare benefits until they need to use them. That’s usually when your employees find out your small group health plan is quite lacking in coverage. 

Small Business Owners Have To Provide Better Benefits

Nothing like a pandemic to get your employees nervous about their healthcare coverage (or lack thereof). If you are one of the many small business owners who were skating by on lousy benefits, you have realized that isn’t going to work anymore.
