Computerworld has named Adventist Health System (AHS) to its list of 2017 Best Places to Work in IT, making it one of 100 top organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing competitive benefits and compensation. Organizations on this year's list will be included in coverage in Computerworld along with results from the 24th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey. AHS was ranked 37th among large organizations.
"It is an honor to once again be considered one of the best places to work in IT," said Brent Snyder, chief information officer for Adventist Health System. "We are blessed to have employees that are immensely talented and enthusiastic about our mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ, and to be part of an organization that leverages technology to provide exceptional care for patients, innovative solutions and robust business systems."
Information technology systems and solutions across Adventist Health System hospitals, home health and hospice agencies, skilled nursing facilities, physician practices and business offices are supported by the organization's IT department, Adventist Information Technology (AIT). AIT employees are able to take advantage of numerous growth and continued learning opportunities in their field through participation in onsite training and certification, leadership development classes and subscriptions to online training services.
"The organizations on this year's Best Places to Work in IT list excel at creating a dynamic and satisfying IT work environment," says Ken Mingis, executive editor of Computerworld. "In a competitive market for tech talent, these outstanding employers are able to attract highly skilled IT pros by offering great benefits, new learning opportunities, access to cutting-edge technologies and challenging, business-critical projects."
The list of 100 Best Places to Work in IT is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. Computerworld also conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in the determination of rankings.
