87% of Small Business Employees Having More Fun than Big Business Workers

Despite the challenges of operating a small business, more employees feel they are having more fun working for small businesses than working for big businesses.
Yep, the perception out there is that it’s a lot more fun to work for a small business than a big one. At least that’s what a recent small businesses happiness survey by voluntary insurance firm Aflac found.

Aflac conducted its 2018 Small Business Happiness Survey with 1,000 small business employees ages 18 and older across the U.S. to determine the state of small business.

The Columbus, Georgia-based insurance company found that a whopping 87% of small business employees somewhat or strongly agree that working for a small business is more fun than working at a large business. About half of employees say they are actually happiest working at a small business, which Aflac defined as an organization with 3 to 49 employees.

Part of the reason a majority of employees perceive working for a small business to be more fun is because they think it to be less stressful than working for big businesses. Pay equity in small businesses is on the rise, which is another reason employees are happier working at a small business. Four in five small business employees surveyed think they are being compensated equally with their co-workers.

“Further, almost 9 in 10 [small business] employees feel like they have the opportunity to voice their ideas and opinions and have them heard and listened,” Aflac writes in its survey findings.
