What is your perspective on the importance of talent and workforce development as a key economic driver?

The way Cox Communications brings information and entertainment to our customers is changing daily. We need employees who can deal with a dynamic product set and who can interact with customers whose expectations are also evolving rapidly. A home-grown workforce that can handle the complexities of telecommunications technology and effectively interact with and serve a diverse, experienced and demanding customer base is critical to our business needs today and into the future.

Q: A:

Why does Cox Communications invest in and support economic development initiatives?

Every Cox Communications customer lives and works in our local market. Our business success is tied to the health and prosperity of our local economy. Economic development efforts are necessary to bring more jobs and industry to our region. Regarding the TREO Blueprint Update, why is the committee you serve on in this strategic planning initiative important to you?

How our community develops and delivers healthcare services is a foundational economic imperative. Our local community needs to have the best possible healthcare services in the region – this is critical, not just to the health of our citizens, employees and friends, but to the health and well being of our local economy. What is the outlook for Cox Communications in 2014?

Cox Communications is and will continue to be a success story in Southern Arizona. Our products, services and locally focused workforce give Southern Arizona the telecommunications infrastructure needed for commercial and residential growth now and in the future. Going forward, we are well positioned to expand our operations and networks throughout the region and state.
