Home :: Business Services :: Business Services Center :: Starting a Business

To start a new business and remain in business profitably, one must be able to adapt to changes in the population, work force and technology, and to the demands of a global marketplace. To address these changing conditions, sound management and organizational practices are more important than ever before. The necessity of increasing productivity of employees, the difficulties in recruiting qualified workers from a shrinking labor force, and the importance of devising ways to meet workers' benefits will challenge managers of all small businesses.
