LAKELAND, Fla. — For the seventh consecutive year, Publix Super Markets here has been honored as one of IDG’s Computerworld top workplaces for information technology (IT) professionals.
Publix ranks No. 68 on this year’s list and was the only supermarket chain to be recognized. In addition, Publix ranks No. 39 for companies with 10,000 or more associates. This honor is part of the weekly IT publication’s 18th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey, published in the June 20 issue of Computerworld and online at www.computerworld.com.
“We are proud to have been recognized as one of the top 100 places to work in IT for seven consecutive years,” said Maria Brous, director of media and community relations, in a statement. “We are honored by this recognition primarily because the rankings are influenced by direct feedback from our associates. We truly appreciate the contributions our IT associates make every day by ensuring our systems are available to support our customers and by developing strategic solutions to strengthen our competitive position.”
The Best Places to Work in IT list is based on a questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor in determining the rankings.
