This article by Gene Marks caught my eye because I have only ever worked for small companies. I grew up around my father's small business and appreciate the values they bring to local communities and their employees.
Working for a small business, like Brine Group, means you achieve practical knowledge, understanding and experience in how a business is run, its operations and how it thrives.
Your contributions are more transparent, directly linked to the businesses' successes. Employees are exposed to a broader range of responsibilities and can benefit more from one-on-one development. Leadership and executive teams are usually more accessible and can offer up feedback, recognition and face time more frequently to the general employee population.
Remember "Where Everybody Knows Your Name"? Whether employees are exemplary in their work or on probation, there is no where to hide. In turn, this means, those who exceed their expectations are given more recognition and praise - it feels good to be noticed by management and the executive team! Imagine getting the opportunity to have a one-on-one with the CEO - it just wouldn't happen if you were working at a large conglomerate like IBM or Microsoft.
I endorse this article because I believe small businesses, like Brine Group can offer great value to an individuals' professional and personal development.
