Computerworld reveals 2024’s top IT workplaces, emphasizing strong DEI commitments, exceptional employee retention, remote work proficiency, comprehensive benefits, and notable IT career growth.

Boston, MA., Nov. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Computerworld is pleased to announce the 2024 Best Places to Work in IT list. These featured organizations showcase robust commitments to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), exceptional employee retention and engagement, adeptness in remote/hybrid work dynamics, comprehensive benefits, substantial IT career development and training programs, and significant strides in IT growth. Recognizing the impact of company size on culture and benefits, the 2024 list categorizes organizations into three segments: large, midsize, and small.

How we chose the best places to work in IT

The 30th annual survey conducted by Computerworld’s publisher, Foundry, aimed to recognize the top workplaces for IT professionals. Commencing in April 2023, the nomination phase welcomed entries from organizations boasting a minimum of 100 total employees, including at least five IT staff members.

Participants were requested to designate a contact person within their organization well-versed in employment statistics, financial data accessibility, and familiarity with both IT department and overall organizational benefit policies and programs.

From mid-April 2023, nominated organization contacts received an extensive 58-question company survey encompassing six core categories: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices; IT turnover, promotions, and growth; programs fostering IT retention and engagement; remote/hybrid work arrangements; comprehensive benefits and perks (such as elder care, child care, flextime, and college tuition reimbursement); as well as training and career development opportunities.

Apart from receiving scores based on closed-ended questions, the survey submissions, inclusive of multiple open-ended responses, underwent an evaluation by a panel of esteemed industry experts. Both the nomination process and company surveys were conducted online, with responses collected and analyzed by a third-party research vendor. The research phase concluded in July 2023.

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:

DEI: DEI strategies and practices; the existence of dedicated role(s) promoting workplace diversity and inclusion; inclusion of women and minority groups within the IT workforce and within IT management; leadership accountability for DEI; DEI training opportunities.

Employee retention and engagement: Frequency of employee satisfaction surveys; promotions; salary increases; actions taken to boost employee morale.

Remote/hybrid work: Employee autonomy over work location; 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 childcare, paid time off, and (within the U.S.) family leave and healthcare benefits.

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

IT growth: Changes in IT headcount over the past three years; IT turnover and anticipated growth; new skills companies are planning to hire this year; outsourcing plans; the company’s revenue growth over the past three years.

When scoring the responses from the company surveys, the results were weighted against averages and benchmarks calculated within each company size group. The survey process was overseen by Jen Garofalo, research director in Foundry’s Global Services group, in collaboration with the independent firm Research Results, Inc.
