About Empower Associates

Vista Resource Group
Empower Technical Staffing

Founded in 2012, Vista Resource Group’s fundamental commitment is to operate with the best interests of our clients and candidates in every interaction. It’s not what we do, but how to do it, that’s led Vista Resource Group to be a trusted resource for Information Technology professionals open to new opportunities, as well as those looking to hire additional resources. In 2018 we merged the Vista Resource Group Brand with Empower Technical Staffing – a leading contingent and retained search staffing company in Phoenix Arizona. Empower Associates was born.

Our business model combines the benefits of a contingent and retained search.  Meaning, we treat your contingency search as though you had prepaid and retained our services.  But, you still don’t pay until we perform.

We do this by limiting our recruiting commitments and only taking on new clients after investing in more recruiting resources.  So, if we take you on as a client, we guarantee to fill your positions quickly with the most qualified candidates.

Our top priority is connecting talented individuals with great opportunities, understanding that looking for the perfect job can be a difficult task. From the early stages of resume writing through the interview process, until you get the offer, we’ll be there to guide you every step of the way. Our staff, including 20-year veteran developers, has a deep understanding of the local market, salary ranges, and the top skills in demand. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your search is not only confidential and targeted towards your aspirations, but represented by individuals who have the respect of each client we work with.
