Nearly one in four new businesses is Hispanic-owned.
The nearly 5 million Hispanic-owned businesses in the United States contribute more than $800 billion to the American economy annually.
More than 300,000 Hispanic-owned employer businesses are located across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. These enterprises employ at least one employee other than the owner.
Hispanic employer businesses employ about 1 million workers, with more than $100 billion in annual payroll. The number of Hispanic-owned businesses that employ at least one employee other than the owner increased by 14% between 2012 and 2017 — more than twice as fast as the national average.
In the decade preceding the pandemic, the number of Hispanic business owners increased by 34% compared to just 1% among non-Hispanic business owners.
Inland Empire Regional Chamber of Commerce (IERCC)
The Inland Empire Regional Chamber of Commerce (IERCC) supports the interests of commerce and economic prosperity throughout Riverside & San Bernardino Counties.
The IERCC provides a platform for senior-level executives to engage, network, and conduct business with like-minded individuals from all over the Inland Empire region. Many of our members are individuals who actively contribute to the Inland Empire Business Industry's growth and advancement.
The IERCC is not a cookie-cutter chamber. We are a proactive non-profit business organization striving to bring true value to our members.
All of our membership packages are customized and tailored to fit the needs, interests, and initiatives of our members.
The Pomona Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our City On The Move. The Chamber serves as the voice of your business community, the public relations arm of your city and a friendly “front door” through which visitors, residents and businesses receive the assistance they seek.
We started as a staffing company in 1972, and over the past 50 years, evolved into what today is known as a Professional Employer Organization or PEO. PEOs provide resources to small and medium-sized businesses that often only larger organizations can afford. A typical PEO provides services such as HR, payroll, workers’ comp, and benefits administration. However, BBSI is not your typical PEO. We provide all those services plus more through our local support model.
Our specialty is pairing you with a local team of professionals who get to know you and seek to understand your business challenges. Your local team will help you shape your vision for success and support it with consulting services in the areas of HR, risk and safety, and business strategy. You’ll know your team by name, you’ll have their phone numbers, and they’ll know you every time you call or drop by the office. We’re here to support your vision, nurture your teams, and ultimately drive you across the goal line. That’s what we do and it’s why we show up every day.
Sure, we provide payroll administration, a great workers’ comp program, staffing and recruiting, and a variety of HR and business consulting services, but who we are is so much more than that. We are an inquisitive group who want to understand who you are. We want to uncover what reality is like for you today and what challenges you’re facing, but that’s just the beginning. What we really want to understand is why you started your business. What you hope to achieve. What makes you proud, and what keeps you up at night. Only then can we work together to create a blueprint for your success.
We’ve also seen firsthand how important community is. It’s easy to feel alone when you’ve got it all on the line, and you may not be comfortable sharing your business concerns with your employees. We regularly bring independent business owners together to create a community free from the pressures and distractions of the everyday grind—to connect and talk about their experiences and challenges. Then we help you take the knowledge and inspiration you gain from these sessions and apply it to your business.
