When you first started your business, you may have had the ability to complete the majority of the tasks yourself.

Traditionally, the Friday after Thanksgiving has been a very important day for physical retail stores here in the United States. “Black Friday” is a day many retailers have counted on for especially high consumer traffic and strong sales. But, may this be starting to change?
It can be very important for small businesses that their employees feel comfortable reporting potential problems to the company. This includes things like suspected incidents of sexual harassment or discrimination. Getting prompt reports of such problems from workers could help a small business become aware of such problems sooner. This, in turn, could allow it to take actions to respond to the problems sooner. The longer potential problems in the workplace go unaddressed, the more time they have to grow in severity and lead to incidents could potentially result in a company facing things such as costly employment litigation.
