The Top 5 hottest small business articles February 2015

We really focused on company culture this month at EnMast. Why? Because it’s the boss’s job. Building a company culture does a lot more than make you a ‘cool company’; it makes your team self-governing.

What do I mean by self-governing? Well, company culture is rooted in core values. If everyone on your team shares the same core values (those in your company culture), then they will live and work according to them, without much prodding on your part! But first, you have to discover what those core values are, and then you have to communicate them.

Interested in discovering your company’s core values? There’s still a few days left to download our free tool for February: How to Identify Your Company’s Core Values.

Speaking of February, here are the top 5 small business articles from this month. Check ’em out!
