Utah: Business Elevated
Year after year, Utah ranks among the top U.S. states for business and careers, personal income growth, family prosperity and quality of life. What’s Utah’s “secret sauce?” It’s a winning combination of collaboration and innovation.
Utah leads the country in developing initiatives to address workforce needs and challenges.
Utah’s educational institutions have developed practical and innovative approaches to educate the state’s continually-growing workforce.
In the most recent Hachman Index, Utah has the most diverse economy in the country. It is also one of the fastest growing. This translates to an economic environment that has long-tern stability and sustainability.
Quality of Life
Utah is an excellent place to live, work, raise a family and visit. The state captivates residents and visitors alike with its spectacular natural beauty, cultural offerings, and year-‘round recreational opportunities. Utah is safe, clean, affordable, which creates an exceptional quality of life.
Why All the Accolades?
While things aren’t perfect in Utah and we can always do better, we should realize just how good we have it. We balance our state budget and tuck something away for a rainy day, our state government’s ratio of employees to state population is among the lowest in America. Our legislative session is one of the shortest in the country and that’s good for everyone concerned. We get things done!
As a fifth generation Utahn, I’m proud and humbled to serve you in our state legislature and I’m proud of our great state and our great people. We aren’t without serious challenges but we work collaboratively to find sensible solutions without overtaxing each one of us.
Utah is great because its people are great and our best days are ahead.
