ATLANTA (June 18, 2018) – Children's Healthcare of Atlanta has been ranked among the 2018 IDG’s Computerworld "Best Places to Work in IT" list. The award recognizes the top 100 organizations that challenge their IT staffs, while also providing great benefits and compensation. Children’s ranked No. 22 among large organizations on the list.
“Our dedicated and compassionate employees make Children’s a great place to work,” said Allana Cummings, Chief Information Officer at Children’s. “We are honored to be named one of the top places to work in IT, and grateful to have the best and brightest on our team. Every day, our committed IT professionals fulfill a meaningful purpose by advancing technology for our patients and supporting Children’s in its Mission to make kids better today and healthier tomorrow.”
The "Best Places to Work in IT" list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals by IDG's Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories, such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.
“Over the past couple of years, we've seen an already tight market for tech talent get even tighter,” said Ken Mingis, Executive Director at Computerworld. “Computerworld's 2018 'Best Places to Work in IT' list illustrates that the companies that offer the best working environments aren't satisfied with rolling out one or two initiatives. They seek an edge in the talent marketplace through a combination of good salaries, great benefits, ready access to training and the deployment of cutting-edge technologies. They recognize that the top tech talent can easily move to the organization that respects them best, and they are determined to be that organization.”
