June 13, 2016 — For the twelfth year, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) has been nationally ranked by Computerworld as one of the “100 Best Places to Work in IT,” based on the benefits and opportunities provided to IT staff and IT worker surveys.
NRECA ranked 6th among small organizations on Computerworld’s list for 2016. Each year, Computerworld’s editorial team selects 100 organizations to receive this award.
“Our team of technology professionals goes above and beyond not only to serve their partners in our business, but also to be key contributors to our organization’s strategy,” said NRECA Interim CEO Jeffrey Connor. “The team has consistently earned recognition for their excellent work, and the credit for this award is shared by people around NRECA who support our success at creating an exceptional, positive, and productive workplace.”
Since 1994, Computerworld’s annual Best Places to Work in IT feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.
The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association is the national service organization that represents the nation’s more than 900 private, not-for-profit, consumer-owned electric cooperatives, which provide service to 42 million people in 47 states.
