Thanks to the hundreds of IT community members who responded to Computerworld‘s annual survey, Indiana University has been selected as one of the publication’s 2010 Best Places to Work in IT.
IU and WellPoint are the only Indiana IT employers to rank in the top 100, and IU is one of only six higher education institutions on the list, featured alongside a prestigious lineup of corporations ranging from Aflac to Xerox.
Since 1994, Computerworld’s annual “Best Places to Work in IT” feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, based on a comprehensive staff questionnaires about company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training, and retention. Extensive responses from each organization’s IT workers also factor heavily in determining the rankings.
“To be among the Best Places to Work in IT, it’s not enough to seek out and hire the most talented IT people, offering competitive pay and benefits,” noted Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “The organizations that made this year’s list sustain a dynamic work environment in which IT professionals keep their hands on the latest technologies and work on projects that are business critical.”
The Best Place to Work in IT designation echoes the vision and aspirations of Empowering People, IU’s strategic plan for information technology, and underscores IU’s foundational belief in enabling its people to gain the confidence and abilities to reach the highest levels of excellence and leadership.
Likewise, this recognition reinforces the idea that IU benefits from a unique worldview: There are no divisions within the university’s IT team. Despite different locations and reporting structures, everyone is working toward a common set of goals and an uncommon vision.
