These acts of giving, from recognition and professional development opportunities to wellness initiatives and flexible work arrangements, can have a profound and lasting positive effect on employee morale, engagement and overall workplace satisfaction.

Onboarding a new employee is an exciting time for any business. While you're eager to get your new team member up and running on their tasks, you also need to ensure they understand the company culture and will mesh with your organization for the long term.

End-of-year reviews are an essential tool to gauge the business's effectiveness and efficiency over the previous year. Unfortunately, few businesses implement a review, and some that do only look at the cursory metrics that would give them a basic understanding of the company's strengths and weaknesses. An in-depth review is necessary if the business wants to learn where it can improve and how to do so. If you haven't gotten started on your year-end review, it isn't too late to do so. Seven experts from Young Entrepreneur Council shed some light on what businesses can do specifically to get started on their year-end review and explain why these steps are crucial for the review's success.
With the holidays approaching quickly, many are ready to set their “out of office” messages and relax and recharge. It’s important for employers to encourage this balance and promote the use of paid time off around the holidays. However, if everyone takes off at the same time, it may leave you with a skeleton crew and piles of work for when employees return, making for a not-so-happy start to the new year. To address this problem, we asked eight members of Young Entrepreneur Council for their own creative solutions. Below, they detail the balance between encouraging their team to take time off and leaving the company short-staffed during the holiday season.
