It seems that many small businesses are having trouble finding these key employees in the first place. Three quarters of small business owners surveyed said that finding qualified employees is difficult and nearly three out of ten rely on family members such as their spouse to help them off the clock.

58% of those surveyed said that the benefit issue is the biggest barrier to finding employees, while 44% cited the difficulty of finding skilled candidates. Perhaps the secret is finding the right combination of skilled candidates that don't demand benefits from a job. Maybe in a perfect world, but benefits are obviously very important to those looking for a long-term job, which should be an indication that they are interested in sticking around.
