Innovative IT Work Environment Promotes Growth Opportunities and Fulfillment
June 19, 2018 -- Erickson Living, a nation-leading developer and manager of continuing care retirement communities, today announced that Computerworld magazine has selected it as one of the Best Places to Work in IT for 2018. Specifically, the company was ranked No. 25 among large organizations, and recognized for having dynamic and rewarding environments for its information technology (IT) professionals.
"It is exciting to be selected for the eighth consecutive year as a premier organization for IT professionals," said Hans Keller, Erickson Living's chief information officer. "Our team of everyday heroes promotes a unique culture of innovation and collaboration that fosters teamwork and ongoing innovations. We take great pride in not only advancing career opportunities for our dedicated team members, but also in delivering to them stellar benefits and compensation, as well as a healthy work-life balance."
A few of the primary factors that makes Erickson Living a 2018 Best Places to Work in IT include its great mission, diverse and engaged workforce, as well as its assortment of IT applications. Talent development opportunities and Erickson Living University have also supported employees' growth and career advancement. Additionally, the company's comprehensive total rewards go far beyond an average benefits package providing multiple health care plans and choices, financial incentives, onsite employee health and wellness centers, and fitness center reimbursement.
"Over the past couple of years, we've seen an already tight market for tech talent get even tighter," said Computerworld executive editor Ken Mingis. "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 in that organization."
The 2018 Best Places to Work in IT listing appeared in the June 18th digital edition of Computerworld and online at Computerworld.com.
