Skilled and Educated Workforce

Sierra Vista is a highly educated community with 93% of the population aged 25 and over having attained high school graduation or higher, compared to 85.7% in Arizona and 85.9% nationally. More than 31% hold a Bachelor’s Degree or higher, compared to 27.1% statewide and 29.3% in the United States.

The University of Arizona, South, along with Cochise College proactively review and change their curriculum to match the needs of the local business community offering four- and two-year degrees along with many certificated programs.

Additionally, the Arizona Workforce Connection (“Arizona @ Work“) can assist in identifying potential workers, evaluating current salary rates for the area, creating job descriptions and reviewing resumes along with developing specialty training programs designed for your precise skill needs. Many of these services are low-cost and free.

The State of Arizona is a right-to-work state. In Arizona, unions cannot require workers to pay dues as a condition of their employment. The financial impact of labor peace and business stability is significant – and increasing.
