Through tailored employee benefits packages and retirement solutions, small businesses have access to resources that help attract and retain talent and support holistic business needs.

As National Small Business Week (NSBW) approaches, April 28 – May 4, Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) acknowledges the vital role of small businesses in driving economic growth and innovation. In recognition of their invaluable contributions, Lincoln Financial Group reaffirms its commitment to supporting small businesses by highlighting opportunities for growth across three key areas: attracting and retaining talent, supporting the holistic needs of employees and fostering business growth.

"Small businesses are the backbone of our communities, fostering entrepreneurship, driving innovation, creating jobs and fueling our local economies," said Jimmy Reid, executive vice president, president of Workplace Solutions, at Lincoln Financial Group. "Throughout National Small Business Week, we want to shine a spotlight on the many solutions and resources available to small businesses and offer our support to help them thrive."

Unlocking opportunities for small businesses

Small businesses have unique opportunities for growth and success as they consider ways to leverage their resources efficiently and effectively in a rapidly changing business environment:

  • Attracting and retaining talent: Small businesses can attract and retain top talent by offering competitive benefits packages, fostering a positive work culture and providing opportunities for professional development. Employees need support across all aspects of their lives, and 57% of those surveyed who work for small businesses say benefits impact their loyalty to their employer.¹
  • Supporting the holistic needs of employees: Employee well-being is essential for business success, and small businesses can support the holistic needs of their employees by promoting physical, emotional and financial wellness. Among those surveyed who have used wellness resources, professionals in small organizations are among the most likely to report that wellness resources have positively impacted their physical (77%) and mental health (78%).² By prioritizing employee wellness, small businesses can enhance productivity, engagement and retention rates.
  • Fostering business growth through partnership: Small businesses can achieve sustainable growth by embracing innovation, adapting to market trends and leveraging strategic partnerships.
