Exciting news! Computerworld has recognized OU Information Technology as one of the nation’s Best Places to Work in IT. OU IT ranked as one of the top 100 organizations by pairing a challenging and diverse work environment with great benefits and competitive compensation.
“It’s an incredible honor for us to be recognized nationally as one of the best organizations for IT professionals. Computerworld’s award is especially meaningful because feedback from our employees is a critical component of the evaluation process. Without great feedback from the employees that work here, we don’t win,” said Eddie Huebsch, OU IT Interim Chief Information Officer.
Huebsch continued, “A University is a great place to work in IT because we support such a diverse line of businesses. We can leverage technology to drive innovation, increase efficiency and deliver more personalized user experiences for our students. This provides IT employees with countless opportunities to be creative and collaborative while exploring how technology can be used to enhance our teaching and research missions.”
“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 that organization.”
