Small businesses 'are closer to staff members'

Date Added: 11/05/2011  

Small businesses have a better relationship with their members of staff, according to one expert on the matter.

Phil McCabe, spokesman for the Forum of Private Business, noted that bosses can be more receptive to the ideas of their employees if there is only a few of them.

He pointed out that in larger corporations, suggestions are often met with a degree of suspicion from executives.

Mr McCabe stated that he believes this is because in smaller businesses, bosses are much less likely to feel threatened by others in the company when compared to a bigger organisation.

He explained that in one of these firms, an executive may think the "employee concerned has some sort of an agenda they're looking to pursue".

Mr McCabe was commenting shortly after the forum urged people celebrating the royal wedding which took place at the end of last month to use the occasion to boost small businesses in the local area.
