What Makes America Tick?

We’re Problem Solvers Who Care

Is it our hard work…our grit, that has shaped the American workplace over the last ten generations? Well yes, hard work and determination have all fit the “American” persona, but more than our ability to produce and serve, America’s workers have always had the ability to dream. And, it’s our ability to build something from scratch based on a dream, blood, sweat, and tears that defines the American small business.

7 Most Common Business Challenges

In 2023 according to the U.S. Census Bureau:

82% of businesses have already raised the price of their products or services due to inflation.

63% of business owners say they have already altered their supply chain in the past six months.

Most have had to drastically change their business model and raise prices to fit into the new economic order.

Workers have left the Florida workplace in record numbers due to lack of childcare, low wages, fear of COVID-19, long commutes, and changing values and priorities.

American small business owners in reported that “hiring the right talent” has been their biggest challenge yet, followed by “retaining or motivating employees.”

Nearly half of small business owners handle marketing efforts on their own.

With smaller budgets than their big brand counterparts, small businesses need to be creative and resourceful about their digital marketing strategy—and they need an online presence to get there.

Malaise, burnout, depression, and stress

Employees and employers alike feel fried in a post-pandemic crisis of productivity.

Signs of burnout, according to the World Health Organization:

  • Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion.
  • Increased mental distance from one’s job.
  • Feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job.
  • Reduced professional efficacy.

Your Employees Would Rather Work for Themselves

While employers often blame employees (or the attitude of an entire generation) for the lack of engagement, the truth is there are plenty of workers who desire nothing more than to care about the company they work for as if it were their own business. These valuable employees have a self-employed mindset.

  • Flexibility
  • Work/life Balance
  • Self-fulfillment
  • Mission
  • Impact
