When they feel voiceless and ignored, they become frustrated with management of smaller companies. Upper management should talk with employees in one-on-one settings with smaller companies or employers having large companies can arrange these meetings in groups and provide them an opportunity to discuss and explain their problems and get solutions they need to function at a higher level.
