Arizona

Arizona Employment Profile

The Grand Canyon State may be shaking its image as a haven for snowbirds and retirees. It’s still hot in Arizona, but perhaps the heat is shifting, as the State makes a concerted effort to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship. The Arizona Commerce Authority has made recent strides in attracting innovative startup companies such as GoDaddy, ZocDoc and others, with no plans to slow down anytime soon.

Based on 2013 statistics, the government sector employs the greatest percentage of workers in the state, followed by health care and social assistance; retail trade; administrative and waste services; and accommodation and food services, respectively.

The largest employers in the state include the State of Arizona, Wal-Mart, Banner Health, the City of Phoenix, Wells Fargo, Maricopa County, Arizona State University, Intel Corporation, JP Morgan Chase & Company, and Bank of America. (Source: Merritt Research Services, LLC)
