Georgia is known for scenic views, southern cooking, and its coastline. However, the Peach State offers much more and is known for its many small businesses and corporate headquarters.

Georgia also has many attractions such as Stone Mountain and taking tours of Savannah. The state’s major industries are agriculture, film, energy, automotive, and tourism. The Home Depot, United Parcel Service, Delta Air Lines, Arby’s and The Coca-Cola Company all have their headquarters in Georgia.
Small businesses in Georgia employ more than 1.6 million people. This accounts for 43% of the state’s private workforce, and with more than 92,600 workplace injuries and 186 fatalities across all industries in 2018, small businesses need to make sure they have workers compensation insurance coverage.
Large businesses in Georgia also self-insure and set aside funds that are dedicated to workers’ comp. Zenployers is a perfect match for this as well.
