Phil McCabe, a spokesman for the Forum of Private Business, said the suggestions of some employees can often get "lost" in very large companies, whereas there is far more employer-worker interaction in smaller firms so staff feel more valued.
He explained that, when it comes to smaller businesses, the company owner is far less likely to view a worker suggestion or request as part of an alternate agenda.
"Small business owners enjoy a much closer and more informal relationship with their employees, are unlikely to feel their position is threatened by a subordinate and are much better-placed to listen to and act on good ideas as a result," Mr McCabe explained.
It comes after Matt Duffy, partnerships manager at Lorica, said that offering an attractive benefits package when advertising job positions, including sales jobs, can provide long-term benefits due to increased productivity.
This in turn will have a positive impact on the company, as the worker is happier and more productive, he explained.
