While the work environment has changed in recent years, tech professionals still value organizations that foster cultures of diversity and inclusion as well as growth through career development, training, and benefits.

Boston, MA, December 13, 2022 — Computerworld is pleased to announce the 2023 Best Places to Work in IT list. The organizations on this list demonstrated a strong focus on employees particularly around career development, training, benefits, diversity & inclusion as well as retention efforts.  Given that company size can play into the culture and benefits, the organizations on the 2023 list are broken down by size (large, midsize, small). Climbing to the top of this year’s list are Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (large), OCLC, Inc. (midsize) and MetroStar (small).

How We Chose the Best Places to Work

Computerworld conducted the 29th annual survey from Foundry to identify the best places to work for IT professionals. In May 2022 Computerworld started accepting nominations from organizations that met the following criteria: Nominated organizations were required to have a minimum of 100 total employees and a minimum of 5 IT employees.

Participants were asked to provide contact information for the 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 the contacts at the nominated organizations received a 52-question company survey asking about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) practices, IT turnover, promotions and growth, IT retention and engagement programs, remote/hybrid working, benefits and perks (ranging from elder care and childcare to flextime and reimbursement for college tuition), and training and career development opportunities.

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

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