Premier Technology, Inc. was established in Idaho in 1996 and is proud to continue to be an Idaho company today; grateful for the community in which it resides. Doing business in Idaho is easy, a result of the high quality workforce and the pro-business mindset of local, regional, and statewide government officials. Premier’s mission is to bring positive influence to its employees’ and surrounding community members through education, employment, donations and opportunity.

Premier believes in supporting local youth and education. Annually it donates to the Idaho Governor’s Cup, both in volunteer hours (Doug Sayer Chief Business Officer serves as the Chairman), and as a major sponsor of the event. Funds of the Governor’s cup go to tuition for Idaho students attending Idaho Universities. Several members of Premier’s staff serve on boards for local universities throughout the region of Southeast Idaho.

Premier is a large supporter of local fundraiser’s, often attending local community auctions and other non-profit causes including, but not limited to: local 4-H auctions, Bingham County Christmas Tree Fantasy, Pocatello Festival of Trees and many more.

Premier works closely with local chamber of commerces and economic development organizations. Teaming with them to bring positive revenue and opportunities into the local community. Supplying jobs with benefits, opportunities for employee’s growth and education.

Premier supports veterans and military members in more ways than one, as a company Premier is a member of the ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and the Reserve) and the Idaho Defense Alliance. Premier is always hiring returning soldiers that are looking for post deployment opportunities. Our Guard and Reserve members are offered additional benefits. We allow them the time off they need for their military training without having to take vacation time. In addition, we offer them a pay differential to keep their income whole. Any veteran who is called up to active duty will have a job waiting for them when they return. We truly appreciate the sacrifices they make for our country.

As a company we believe that our influence to the community spans greater than supply jobs. Our mission is to help community through volunteer time, increased revenue, donations, and opportunity.
