Reasons to Work for a Small Business - Sophia Belnap - Blog

Reasons to Work for a Small Business

Small  businesses are the backbone of the economy. They offer unique charm and keep variety in the market. They also happen to be a great place to work. Here are some benefits to working for  a small business. 

You’re a Part of Something Special

One of the biggest benefits is the fact that you’re a part of the unique culture of your city and state. Small businesses offer personality and charm to their cities, and you get to be a part of that. Every small business has a unique personality and you get to be a part of that.

This also means you get to be more involved in your local community. Small businesses are the cornerstone of the community. A lot of times when community members ask for businesses to partner with them or sponsor them in some way, large corporate entities have to say no or ask for help from corporate offices. This can lead to difficulty in actually partnering and in corporations making a significant impact in their communities. Small businesses don’t have this challenge and are better able to partner with their communities for this reason. This means you are likely to have an influence on what community causes you think your work should be a part of and help serve the community through your work in a way you desire. 

There Are Less Departments to Work With

If you’ve worked for a large business, you’ve experienced the corporate side of life. You’ve dealt with trying to navigate HR, payroll and communications departments that may even be offsite. If you work in a small business, there either isn’t a separate department for these duties, or it’s located onsite. 

Onsite payroll and HR means it’s easier to get your needs met. Whether you’re looking for proof of income, paystub maker or to update your insurance, it’s much easier to do this when the person who can help you is located right in your office. It’s also easier to learn new skills that pertain to other departments if they’re located in-house. This could help you expand your resume or take your career in another direction if you desire to do so. 

You’ll Have More Ownership for Your Workplace

Just like you might get the opportunity to learn skills outside your job description, you’ll also likely take significant ownership of your workplace. You’ll be able to help with things that you may not in a corporate environment. These could include everything from picking out new paint colors to helping create a relaxing outdoor space for staff to enjoy. 

This could also include planning events at your workplace. Maybe you’ll help plan the Christmas party or decorate the office for Halloween. You may even get to help lead field trips!

Your Coworkers Will Feel Like Family...

It’s possible to be close to your coworkers in a large corporation, but your coworkers will be even more like family in a small business. In small, local businesses, employee retention is higher, so you’ll have the opportunity to build extended relationships with your coworkers. Since small businesses have less employees, it’s easier to get to know those that you’re working with. 

...And So Will Your Customers

Especially if your place of employment is customer service facing, you’ll have the opportunity to get to know your customers, just like your coworkers. One of the most significant impacts you can make is in individual lives. Knowing you made a difference to someone is a huge reward in and of itself.

Since you’ll see the same customers over and over, you’ll learn their stories. They’ll become important people in your life. Since you’re members of the same community, you’ll find ways to support each other. These sorts of relationships are valuable and will add to your life. 

There are so many reasons to work for a small business. Small businesses add much to the community and can also add to your life.
