How family businesses can invest in
their people

Welcome to our latest bulletin, which explores a key part of all family businesses – its people. Attracting and retaining the best staff has become increasingly important, and businesses need to demonstrate that they are investing in their people to make them stand out as employers of choice in such a competitive market. If you know you’re not in a position to offer the highest salaries or bonuses, it’s time to look further afield to incentivise and continue to attract and retain your employees.

In this edition, we look at the following:

  • The impact of ‘quiet quitters’ within a business, and how to reverse this trend and reengage your people.
  • Recruiting overseas – family businesses are recognising the immense value that international talent can bring, which in turn can also provide a competitive edge.
  • How providing an attractive employee benefits package can draw in potential employees, as well as improve the wellbeing of current staff.
  • Employee Ownership Trusts (EOTs) can be a game changer for owners and employees and could be an option for consideration when thinking about future plans for your family business.

Please do get in contact if you have any questions.
