Many surveys that focus on small and medium businesses (SMBs) often do not take into account what employees feel, do or have to say about their job or the company they work for. The respondents are either owners and senior executives or IT admins who provide excellent insight into the challenges and problems facing small businesses on a daily basis.
However, it would also be interesting to understand what their employees are going through, how satisfied they are at work, what is troubling them, how they use social media, how they connect to their company networks, how they feel about their management teams, their confidence in protection from cybercrime, and much more.
To this end, GFI Software commissioned a scientific study that provides a profile of the American small business employee and looks at their opinions on a number of pertinent issues affecting not only their lives but also the businesses they work for.
