Small Businesses Have Training Needs Too
Starting and running a successful small business takes a lot of time and effort. Effective training of the owner and the employees can yield big advantages, including, but not limited to:

- Reduced turn over
- A more effective work force

In his article, Training Issues in Small Business, Lester L. Stephenson explains why many small businesses have unmet training needs and how small business owners can go about correcting the problem. His three-pronged approach to training could yield valuable rewards for small business owners.
