SME bosses to spend more time with families
The managers and owners of small businesses have vowed to prioritise family life in the New Year, according to a new survey.
The study by Bibby Financial Services found that 56% of those asked would be looking to spend more time with their families in 2004. This contrasts wildly with last year’s findings, which saw the top resolution as identifying new markets for their products and services.
Of those asked 46% said they were determined to work shorter hours next year in an effort to redress their work/life balance.
Financial concerns were not completely forgotten though, with 54% of respondents promising to improve their cash flow management in the coming year.
