Culture & Values


Since we began operations in 2007, our number one goal is to have a culture where our employees, customers, business partners and community partners are treated with dignity, respect and human kindness. We are committed to building long-term relationships where honesty, trust, integrity, respect and service excellence are not just sound bites, but the essence of our existence.

The Sonoran Technology culture is built on four core principles:

  • Connector.

    Leadership

    This sets the standard of excellence, organizational culture, and values, which means that our customer’s mission is our mission.

  • Connector.

    Reliability & Responsiveness

    This means that our customers can depend on us to deliver low-risk, cost efficient, on-time, and outstanding results all the time.

  • Connector.

    Service Excellence

    This begins with hiring and retaining the best talent available to service our customers. Since 2007, we have maintained a steady 96% employee retention rate.

  • Connector.
