Employees are increasingly becoming business owners as the sales of small businesses rise. Sales are up 60% since 2102, as retiring baby boomers fuel the surge, according to BIZBUYSELL.com. Often selling to employees makes the transaction easier. These former employees most likely were general managers, operating personnel or foremen who worked for the company many years.
A survey of 500 employees by GFI Software, a web-based IT company, found one in four workers reply within 15 minutes to an email. Interestingly, only one in 10 expect such quick responses.
