Small business employee


A big company can have perks—benefits, advancement, resources—but may feel impersonal and uninspiring to some. For these people, small businesses may be more fulfilling.

A 2012 study found that U.S. counties with more locally-owned businesses are healthier overall—lower mortality, obesity, and diabetes rates—than those with larger companies.

"Working for a small business can be good for morale," says Dr. Chosewood. Entrepreneurial, highly energetic owners may be dedicated to their own health and the health of their employees, although it can be challenging for very small businesses to provide benefits and wellness programs, he adds.
