UniqueHR owner, Garry Bradford is like most American business owners trying to gauge what is in store for 2017, with a new President, new Administration, and new Congress. Having met recently with investment bankers, bank presidents, business owners, and U.S. and State Legislators, Mr. Bradford describes the overall mood among the group as “optimistically conservative.”
With a true businessman at the helm, government leaders are weighing the options to grow the economy by making business in the United States attractive. Cutting taxes from 35% to 15% and allowing monies to be brought in from off-shore has industry leaders predicting incredible growth. Rolling back strangling regulations will help the marketplace shift its focus back to business, which in turn will spur new products, services, and new jobs here at home.
“Businesses, especially small- and mid-market, should be focusing on their core business now, more than ever. Being able to scale operations in short order will mean the difference between signing a new contract or not,” says Mr. Bradford. “We are in store for incredible growth and a robust economy. For the most part, our customers here at UniqueHR will have an advantage by not being bogged down with human resources, payroll, risk management and all that entails. We can help them scale up as fast as possible by allowing them to focus on what they do best, while we do what we do best.”
Even in the current economy plagued by arduous regulations, studies show that companies utilizing the services of a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) grow an average of 7% faster than those which do not. UniqueHR has been at the forefront of the PEO Industry for more than 35 years. Garry Bradford has helped define and shape the Industry, serving multiple terms on the Board of Directors of National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) and as the National Government Affairs Committee Chairman. He is a past President of the Texas NAPEO Chapter and an award recipient for visionary leadership. He is the founding President of the Best Practices Workers’ Compensation Certification Institute (CI) and on the Board of Directors for the Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC).
UniqueHR is a full-service PEO, offering human resources, payroll, benefits, and risk management services to small and mid-market businesses across Texas, California, and throughout the country. “I’m not sure America is ready for how fast this train (new Administration) is moving,” says Mr. Bradford. “I’m grateful that we are helping our customers position themselves for growth and not get passed by.”
