IDG’s Computerworld announces Principal Financial Group® as a 2018 Best Places to Work in IT, one of 100 top organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation.
Principal® ranks 29th among large companies on the 2018 Computerworld list. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention.
“To respond to customers’ changing experience expectations and to successfully execute against our broad digital business strategies, it’s critical that world class IT talent continues to be attracted to Principal,” said Gary Scholten, executive vice president, CIO and chief digital officer at Principal. “Employees are looking for an inclusive environment where collaboration and a startup-like mentality are the norm, and that exactly aligns with the environment needed to pursue digital business transformation.”
Principal was again named to Computerworld’s list because of the exceptional development opportunities, close business/IT alignment, outstanding benefits and a progressive work environment emphasizing flexibility and achievement of meaningful work/life balance. This is the 17th consecutive year Principal® has made the list.
“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.”
