One of the most important tasks facing every small business owner is keeping his or her employees well motivated. Happy, well-motivated employees work harder and longer. But the benefits to your business go far beyond simple increased productivity. Indeed, for very small businesses, happy employees are absolutely crucial to success. In smaller workplaces, individual employees have a greater impact on the overall business because each employee typically wears so many different hats. Additionally, your employees' attitude toward their jobs and your business will likely be perceived by your customers, who will then form opinions about your business based on their interaction with your personnel.
