  • Should your employees be wearing more hats?
    Startups tend to be staffed by entrepreneurial workers capable of juggling endless tasks and responsibilities, says Serena & Lily CEO Lily Kanter, but established companies tend to employ specialists who focus on a single area of business. The trick is to make sure your firm strikes a balance and retains some of its multi-hatted entrepreneurs as it grows, she says. "I think keeping that entrepreneurial ability alive in a company is really important," she says. The New York Times (tiered subscription model) (2/23) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Motivating employees goes beyond money
    While money is a good motivator for some employees, many workers find other types of rewards or behaviors inspiring. Leiden Johnson suggests motivating your employees by involving them in decisions, recognizing their efforts, providing appropriate equipment and showing them that you respect them.
