Workers' Compensation for Arkansas Businesses
Worker’s comp insurance for the Natural State
Arkansas, where residents can’t decide if they want to be called Arkansans or Arkansawyers, but they are sure about one thing: starting the day off with biscuits drenched in chocolate gravy sprinkled with bacon bits.
Agriculture is the big industry in Arkansas. The majority of crops have shifted from cotton to rice, producing about half the rice in the US. With its central location, Arkansas is a major distribution hub and is the home to 22 trucking companies. Food and paper manufacturing account for about 75,000 jobs, and aerospace manufacturing and development are a $1.8 billion industry.
Bentonville is the home of Walmart, and many companies have set up offices and full-time staff to service their relationship with the retail giant. There are 247,018 small businesses in Arkansas, accounting for 99.3% of all companies and employing 47.8% of workers, or 479,727 people. Trucking companies, outdoor tour guides, health care, and entertainment, Arkansas small businesses are driving the local economy.
Tourists looking to get back to nature and clean, Ozark mountain air flock to resort towns like Hot Springs and Eureka Springs. Not content to race lawn mowers, residents have moved on to racing outhouses (which we choose to believe are new and unused). Camouflage is a fashion choice and not just for hunting, but please let us know if you ever see an area where pink camo with rhinestones would blend in with the scenery.
Arkansas is known as the Natural State because of its breathtaking, very green landscape. While hiking and all kinds of outdoor entertaining are popular, residents also enjoy snipe hunting. An elaborate prank everywhere else, in Arkansas it’s a real bird with an erratic flight pattern that only the best shot can hit. The term “sniper” comes from this bird. Hunting is so popular that the first day of each hunting season might as well be a holiday and save everybody the trouble of calling in sick.
Workers’ compensation insurance is a legal requirement in Arkansas and protects small business owners and their employees from loss. Accidents happen, like when a crayfish snake gets lost in the air vents and makes his way into the office, causing general chaos and minor injuries during the staff exodus. When football season kicks off and your CFO trips on a cord because he can’t see around the snout on his plastic razorback hoghead hat that he wore on first game Friday, his bills are covered. Cerity and Arkansas small business are the perfect team!
