Framingham, Mass. – June 17, 2013 – IDG’s Computerworld—the IT media brand dedicated to providing peer perspective, IT leadership and business results—releases the 2013 Best Places to Work in IT list.  The list is compiled by the Computerworld editorial team based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories 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. To honor the 20th anniversary of the Best Places to Work in IT list, an online package including a database of all the organizations that have made the list over the past 20 years has been created.

“We applaud the organizations on the Best Places to Work in IT list for creating and sustaining dynamic IT work environments,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “This year, several new organizations have joined the stalwarts that make the list year after year. It’s clear that the best IT workplaces are constantly raising the bar with great benefits, new learning opportunities, access to cutting-edge technologies and challenging business-critical projects.”

What Makes an Organization a Best Place to Work?
