The landscape of business is changing. Everyone in an HR or people function knows it. By 2020, the U.S. will have 1.5 million too few workers with college or graduate degrees and fifty-six percent of U.S. employers believe this talent shortage has a medium to high impact on their ability to meet client needs.
A valuable trait that small organizations have over large ones is that by virtue of their size, it's easier to build and foster trust (think more transparency, a tighter-knit community, less separation between hierarchical levels, etc.). And because trust is the defining component of great workplaces, this advantage is noteworthy.
