Rural Utahns hope new push to create jobs means they don't have to leave home to be employed

September 4, 2017View for printing

When Angela Arnold was laid off at the end of last year, she didn't know if she would find work that would let her stay in Carbon County. But then she got a job that keeps rural workers home by design.

With training and support from a new company, Accelerant BSP, she answers calls from her house for HealthEquity, a Draper-based health savings account firm that manages over $5 billion for more than 3 million customers.

"The idea is ultrasimple: Create rural jobs while filling the needs of the urban company that can't find adequate talent on the Wasatch Front," said Joel McKay Smith, CEO of Accelerant Business Solutions Provider.
