With more than half (52%) of SME employees saying they would prefer to work at a big corporation and almost a third (32%) planning to leave their current role in 2022, Sodexo Engage has produced the SME Guide to Loyalty and Engagement. This explains how SMEs can counter the perceived drawbacks of working for a smaller company, such as lack of flexibility (cited by 45%), lower salary (43%) and increased risk, by accentuating the positives.
According to Sodexo’s survey of SME workers and managers, these include more likelihood of recognition (cited by 91%), a family feel (42%), a better work-life balance (42%) and better company values (36%). Almost three quarters (74%) of SME employees say they would be more inclined to stay in their role if they were rewarded on a more regular basis.
