SMEs generally give their employees more freedom, and workers themselves feel that they are trusted, research shows.
The results from the research by Dell shows that around the world 55% of employees from SMEs say they feel their employer listens to them, compared to only 36% at large enterprises.
"SMEs are global leaders in terms of employee led innovation, but the UK lags behind and can be seen to hold its employees back with half (53%) of employees saying they don’t have the freedom to choose how to work", says Kevin Peesker, General Manager, UK and Ireland for Small and Medium Business at Dell.
