IDG's Computerworld has selected Hilton as one of the top workplaces for information technology, (IT) professionals -
Hilton's ranking at #11 out of 100 was the highest for any hospitality company recognized.
This honor is part of the weekly IT publication's 14th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey, which was published in the June 18 issue of Computerworld and online at computerworld.com.
Since 1994, Computerworld's annual "Best Places to Work in IT" feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, this year Computerworld surveyed thousands of IT workers for the list, and their responses factored heavily in determining the rankings.
"We are delighted with Hilton's selection as one of Computerworld's Best Places to Work in IT," said Tim Harvey, executive vice president and chief information officer for Hilton. "It's always gratifying to see the teamwork and hard work of our people get recognized by such an industry leader. Being around this organization on a daily basis, seeing the active collaboration, and the way our people are responding in a very competitive marketplace, this honor rightly belongs to them. The challenge of the future is always to build on this award, improve our capabilities, and continue to deliver the hospitality that the world expects from Hilton."
"This year's Best Places to Work rankings represent companies across the industry that recognize how a strong commitment to and investment in employees is synonymous with creating a great IT work environment," said Don Tennant, editor in chief of Computerworld. "Once again, we found that IT professionals are looking for rewarding and challenging projects, access to leading-edge technologies, career growth and development and a comfortable work/life balance. Our Best Places companies not only offer these benefits, but do so in a manner that goes well above industry norms."
