New research indicates that employees of Small and Medium Enterprise are happier than employees of larger organisations. Job stability is greater with SMEs worldwide, with only a quarter of SME staff viewing outsourcing as a threat.

A number of factors influence employees, resulting in SME employees being happier in their work environments than workers in large organisations and the public sector. Being able to choose the device they work on is one of the influencing factors, with 39 percent being able to select their own device in comparison to 21 percent in large businesses.

Only 41 percent of employees at SMEs felt that working long hours was necessary, while 47 percent of large organisation employees felt under pressure to work longer hours.

The study, carried out by Dell, indicates that the results are similar all over the world, with an overall percentage of 55 percent saying that SMEs listened to their employees, while only 36 percent of worldwide employees of large companies felt that they had their employer’s attention.

However, the UK has fallen behind other countries who invest in employee led innovation. More than half UK employees say they aren’t given the freedom to work how they choose. According to the general manager in UK and Ireland for Small and Medium Business at Dell, Kevin Peesker SMEs ought to place greater trust in their workforce and allow their employees to choose which device to work with. Device choice, flexible working will increase motivation and increase productivity for SMEs.
