DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. – (June 21, 2018) –  Halifax Health has been named a Computerworld 2018 Best Places to Work in IT honoree, one of 100 top organizations recognized for challenging their information technology staffs while providing great benefits and compensation.  This is the fourth consecutive year Halifax Health has been featured on this list by IDG’s Computerworld – the leading technology media brand dedicated to being the voice of business technology. 

Ranked fifth on Computerworld’s list of mid-sized organizations with 1,001 to 4,999 U.S. employees, Halifax Health is recognized for its high employee retention and career development opportunities.  With this honor, Halifax Health will once again be included in coverage in Computerworld along with results from the 25th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey.

“To be recognized as we have been over the years is an honor.  It motivates our entire team of technology professionals to continue to work hard and achieve goals that will advance our entire organization,” says Tom Stafford, vice president and chief information officer for Halifax Health. 

The Best Places to Work in Information Technology list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals by IDG’s Computerworld.  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.

“Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen an already tight market for tech talent get even tighter,” says 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.”
