Old habits die hard. We’ve all heard it said, and within a company it couldn’t be more true. From employee number one to employee “X” habits become culture - what is set into motion in the beginning tends to become the foundation, and changing a foundation is difficult. While sometimes it doesn’t make sense when strategizing for a business to take into consideration what you envision future success will look like, but failure to do so can lead to employee habits that eventually get your business into trouble.

Small Business Software: Workforce Management Necessities
Unique Challenges Small Businesses Face When it Comes to Choosing Software
Small businesses, whether a start-up or a purposefully small business by design, can face many challenges when it comes to just about every facet of the organization - from hiring the right talent, to retaining that talent in the face of more glamorous big brands, from choosing the right software that is not only affordable but is scalable, to finding the time to even explore solutions to problems before it is too late. Oftentimes, executives and managers within a small business are wearing multiple hats with various roles and responsibilities - no task is too small for a small business manager to dive into, nor is a task too large in scope to exclude all employees. Oftentimes most, if not all, employees are included in making big picture decisions, and even the smallest of voices with the seemingly littlest amount of influence are heard and considered. While each of these scenarios can present a unique challenge that are not seen as a company gets larger, this is often how small businesses rise to success - they are not bogged down by bureaucracy and red-tape especially when onboarding new solutions: software, in particular.
