Telling the truth about SME life today

Employees in small teams can have a much bigger influence over the direction of the business than perhaps they might in a large corporate. It?s the nature of a small business that everyone is used to keeping ?all hands on deck? and taking on a greater share of responsibility. But keeping your team motivated boils down to keeping them happy and healthy, which in turn can boost your bottom line as people are most productive when they are happy.

This is why Real Business has teamed up with AXA PPP healthcare to support their SME Work and Wellbeing programme ? a collaboration with cross-industry business leaders. It aims to showcase how business owners have benefited from putting health and wellbeing at the heart of what they do, and how other small and developing companies can follow suit.

Over the course of this series, we will be exploring the simple initiatives businesses can take to improve wellbeing in the workplace, as well as hearing top tips from AXA?s health experts and seasoned entrepreneurs.
