The Arizona Technology Council has many initiatives and programs established to help its members hire, grow and retain their talent and their companies, most of which can be found below or in the navigation to the right.
Arizona Technology Compensation Survey - Participate Today
AZTC and Mountain States Employers Council (MSEC) have partnered on the second annual comprehensive wage and benefits survey of the technology community for Arizona businesses. With even more jobs to report, this survey will provide employers a resource to compare how their compensation program measures up with other companies in Arizona. Whether your company is in the technology business or has technology-related jobs, the purpose of this survey is to collect timely, locally-based salary and benefits data specifically targeted to jobs and companies in the aerospace & defense, bioscience, cleantech, electronics, information technology, optics, telecommunication and related industries.
As your company moves into the budgeting/planning cycle for 2014, the data this survey provides will guide your salary decisions for the upcoming year. To participate in the survey, please download the collection sheet (Excel format) for your human resources or finance team to fill and return to email@example.com.
For additional information or to request your copy of the 2013 results once they are available (July 2013) email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Arizona Technology Workforce Study
After reading headline after headline about skilled labor shortages and routinely hearing from technology leaders about the difficulty of finding technology talent, the Arizona Technology Council commissioned the Seidman Research Institute at Arizona State University to conduct a workforce study that would focus on the manpower needs of high-technology companies operating in Arizona.
The results have been published in The Arizona Technology Workforce Study and have put to rest a number of myths about the size and cause of the “technology talent gap” in Arizona. You can download both the Executive Summary and the entire Study.

Technology Connection Program with Raytheon Missile Systems
Raytheon Missile Systems and the Council have partnered to expand Raytheon’s Arizona supply base and meet its critical technology needs. The Program is designed to deepen the already strong relationships Raytheon has with the Council, its over 600 member companies, and all of Arizona’s providers of world-class technology, innovation and manufacturing.
Raytheon Missile Systems has internal groups that align each area of technology need with essential weapon technologies. These groups span all integration complexities, and provide a focal point for existing and new suppliers. The Arizona Technology Council will work closely in conjunction with Raytheon, our membership, and Arizona’s technology industry broadly to help foster strong relationships with Arizona’s technology firms.
