Profiles of three Best Places companies

Want to know what it’s like to work at a Best Places organization? Read these in-depth profiles of three outstanding IT employers:

How we chose the Best Places to Work in IT

Computerworld publisher Foundry conducted its 29th annual survey to identify the best places to work for IT professionals. In May 2022, Computerworld started accepting nominations from organizations that had a minimum of 100 total employees and five IT employees.

Participants were asked to provide contact information for a person at their organization who is familiar with or has access to employment statistics and financial data, as well as benefits policies and programs for the IT department and the entire organization.

Beginning in June 2022, contacts at the nominated organizations received a 52-question company survey across six categories: DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) practices; IT turnover, promotions and growth; IT retention and engagement programs; remote/hybrid working; benefits and perks (such as elder care and child care, flextime, and reimbursement for college tuition); and training and career development opportunities.

In addition to receiving scores based on answers to closed-ended questions, the survey entries (including numerous open-ended responses) were reviewed and evaluated by a panel of industry experts.

The nomination and company surveys were conducted online. Responses to the company survey were collected and tabulated by a third-party research vendor. The research was closed in September 2022.

Top 10 lists

Our top 10 lists show the best of the best — the organizations that excel in each of the six categories covered. To determine each list, we considered the following factors:

Diversity: Diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies and practices; the existence of dedicated role(s) promoting workplace diversity and inclusion; gender diversity within the IT workforce and within IT management; DEI training opportunities.

Employee engagement: The frequency of employee satisfaction surveys; promotions; salary increases; actions taken to boost employee morale.

Hybrid work: Employee autonomy over work location; the percentage of remote and hybrid employees; policies regarding flexible work; actions taken to support flexible work; actions taken to ensure employee safety and well-being.

Benefits: The range of benefits and perks offered, including sabbaticals, elder care and child care, paid time off, and (within the US) family leave and healthcare benefits.

Career development: Mentoring programs; training budget; promotions within IT; accessibility of training to remote employees; unique training programs.

IT growth: Changes in IT head count over the past three years; IT turnover and anticipated growth; the company’s revenue growth over the past three years.

In scoring the responses from the company surveys, results were weighted against averages and benchmarks calculated within each company size group.

The survey process was managed by Jen Garofalo, research director in Foundry’s Global Services group, working with independent firm Research Results.
