Workest is built for the small business community. Here’s a look at how we plan to serve small and mid-size business leaders and their people.
Here's what you need to know:
- Workest is a community and editorial platform dedicated to small businesses
- It includes a community forum so users can engage
- You can save content to your profile as a registered user
- Tools and resources are also available
- Workest also includes a weekly email newsletter
Truth is, there are plenty of news sites, forums, and apps for the business community. We knew that. But over the past year, after having created over 1,000 pieces of content — from articles to interactive tools — we noticed something missing. Many of the resources are geared for big business.
Whether it’s headlines or assets, everyone seems to be fighting for the attention of the enterprises that comprise 1% of the workforce. And even when resources are aimed at small businesses, it’s often for one niche industry.
The big businesses not only have legal teams to ensure compliance, they have lobbyists to help change rules and regulations. They can offer outsized compensation and benefits. And their recruitment efforts are hard to match.
But small and mid-size businesses are the force behind our economy. They provide jobs, training, benefits, and even shape the communities around them that, taken as a whole, have a far larger and lasting impact on all of us.
Our goal with Workest was to provide a resource specifically for small business owners, operators, leaders and talent, empowering them to do their best work.
(Best + Work = Workest, get it?)
So, we created this platform as a place to access the latest trends and news impacting small businesses. We’re stocking it with tools and resources that are designed to make life easier for the needs of those employers and their HR leaders. And we created a space for small business people to engage with each other, asking and answering the questions that arise as they build their businesses and their teams.
We hope you’ll join Workest by becoming a registered user. If you do, you’ll be able to save the content you find most useful, engage with other small business leaders, and receive our weekly email newsletter. We’re just getting started, too. We’ll continue to build and enhance the platform with richer experiences and exclusive content offers.
Stay in touch. As we grow, we’ll need your feedback. Just like a stone mason — or a small business leader — we’re in it to build something that lasts.
