GW Division of Information Technology Selected as One of “Computerworld’s” Best Places to Work in IT

June 18, 2012



WASHINGTON—The George Washington University’s Division of Information Technology has been selected as one of the top workplaces for information technology (IT) professionals by IDG’s Computerworld. This honor is part of the bi-weekly IT publication’s 19th annual “Best Places to Work in IT” survey, which was featured in the June 18, 2012 issue of “Computerworld” and online at Computerworld.com.

“The Division of Information Technology strives to create a fulfilling work environment that both maximizes employee engagement and provides opportunities for professional growth,” said GW Chief Information Officer David Steinour. “Being recognized for the 5th consecutive year is an honor that exemplifies the division’s hard work and commitment to excellence and serves as a challenge to continue to provide the best-possible IT services while enriching the lives and careers of our employees.”

The university ranked 75th in the survey, which recognizes IT departments that offer their workers great benefits and compensation and provide a stimulating work environment.

“The organizations on this year’s Best Places to Work in IT list consistently seek out and hire the most talented IT people, offer them competitive pay and provide great benefits,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Many of these organizations have spent years building top-notch IT workplaces, and we applaud the amazing work they’ve done to sustain dynamic environments where IT professionals can work with the latest technologies and play a key role in business-critical projects.”

The Best Places to Work in IT list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals by Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention.

The Division of Information Technology is the chief provider of technology infrastructure, services, support and applications at The George Washington University. The Division of IT partners with stakeholders across GW to provide students, staff and faculty with the advanced technology solutions necessary to achieve academic excellence. Currently acknowledged as a leader in higher education IT, the Division of IT has established a robust infrastructure and services mix, which has received awards for disaster recovery, security and overall design. From Internet and phone connections in offices and residence halls to software that supports admissions, online registration and other aspects of day-to-day business, the Division of IT keeps GW connected.
