recesssion survival guide small business hr when to hire a new employee May 10, 2023

In a recession, small businesses must adapt and implement new strategies to stay afloat. Economic observers are predicting a potential recession driven by high inflation and supply chain issues.

While no one knows how prolonged or how severe the recession will be, we know that any economic downturn significantly impacts small businesses.

In the While We Were Working Segment of the show, Sommer and I discuss an article published by Entrepreneur.com, where several experts shared their insights on the new strategies that small businesses can use to survive a recession.

Key among their recommendations was prioritizing customer satisfaction and meeting your customers where they are at. This is the time to listen to the customer and try as much as possible to accommodate them and provide a frictionless experience.

While customer experience is important, employee experience matters too. If you don't have great employees to get you through this tough time, then you'll have a really difficult time surviving a recession.
