Framingham, Mass. – June 23, 2014 – IDG’s Computerworld— the voice of business technology—is proud to announce the 2014 Best Places to Work in IT list. The Computerworld editorial team compiled this extensive list based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding organization offerings such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention, as well as a worker satisfaction survey completed by a random sampling of IT employees at the participating organizations. The 100 winning organizations were then categorized by company size based on the number of employees (large, midsize, small).

“Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year’s Best Places to Work in IT list,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in their own futures by investing in their employees.”
