Small business owners who can't find workers are stepping into the unfilled roles themselves — and asking existing staff to take on more hours — to meet demand, per a new survey by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and MetLife.

How it works: Over a quarter say they will switch up advertising, while others will boost pay (24%), offer flexible hours (22%) or offer a hybrid work environment (21%).
