The 22nd Annual Best Places to Work in IT list names Quicken Loans, Credit Acceptance and Noah Consulting No. 1 for large, midsize and small organizations, respectively

Framingham, Mass. – June 22, 2015 – IDG’s Computerworld—the leading IT media brand dedicated to being the voice of business technology—is proud to announce the 2015 Best Places to Work in IT list (Click here to tweet). The Computerworld editorial team compiled this exhaustive list based on a comprehensive questionnaire focused on 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).

“The 100 organizations on Computerworld’s 2015 Best Places to Work in IT list realize that attracting and retaining a highly skilled technology workforce leads to competitive advantage,” says Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “In a tight market for tech talent, these outstanding employers attract the best and brightest IT pros with generous salaries and top-drawer benefits, then deepen their teams’ engagement with challenging, business-critical projects built around cutting-edge technologies. As a result, these winning organizations are best positioned to take advantage of the digital transformation sweeping through every industry.”

What Defines a Top 100 Organization
Solidifying a spot on the Top 100 Best Places to Work in IT list goes beyond offering what are considered “standard benefits” (i.e., health insurance, paid vacation time and 401(k)/403(b) plans). Organizations offering reimbursement for technology certifications saw an increase this year with 99 of this year’s 100 organizations providing it to their IT employees. Additionally, organizations provided an average of 20 paid time-off days (vacation, sick, and personal, excluding holidays) after one year of service and 29 days after 10 years of service. Stress level is low among this year’s winning organizations with only 8% of surveyed employees claiming to be very stressed in the workplace. Eighty-eight percent of respondents from this year’s top 100 organizations claimed their IT department morale as good, very good or excellent.

Additional information about the 100 organizations named to the 2015 list, as well as the results of the 22nd annual Best Places to Work in IT survey, can be read on Computerworld.com. The website features articles on the three No. 1 organizations, a video profile of top companies for training, benefits, retention and career development, and new to this year’s coverage is a slideshow welcoming and introducing the 16 organizations new to the list. The website also features a smart tool that lets readers sort and filter the winners’ list, and an interactive map to find Best Places by region.
