BOCA RATON, Fla., June 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), a national network of five cancer hospitals, was today named number 44 on IDG's Computerworld list of 2017 Best Places to Work in IT. CTCA® is one of 100 top organizations that offers IT workers great benefits and compensation, along with a stimulating work environment. This is the sixth consecutive year CTCA has been named to the list.
"We are honored to be recognized once again alongside a list of innovative and distinguished companies," said Kristin Darby, Chief Information Officer at CTCA. "Technology innovation has enabled our IT professionals to be at the center of the convergence of medicine, science and technology in the delivery of personalized medicine. All of our IT professionals consider their job to be fighting cancer rather than performing a technical function. This has helped us create high engagement and emotional investment in the organizational mission."
The CTCA Information Technology department includes approximately 225 employees in eight locations across the U.S. The company's commitment to its employees (which CTCA refers to as "Stakeholders") is demonstrated by the number of programs and financial incentives it offers to enhance employee satisfaction.
"As technology moves to the strategic center of every business, the ability of the enterprise to attract and retain skilled IT talent has become critically important," says Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "The 100 organizations on our 2017 Best Places to Work in IT list keep their tech employees happy and engaged by offering generous salaries, top-notch benefits, continuous training, and access to cutting-edge technologies.
