CARY, NC  (19 Jun. 2013)  – Lauded for its innovative and challenging work environment for IT staff, as well as outstanding benefits, SAS was again named to IDG's Computerworld list of Best Place to Work in IT. SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, is one of 100 top organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation. Organizations will be included in coverage in Computerworld along with results from the 20th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey.

"Our world-renowned culture is known for trust, innovation and execution. And, we firmly believe that happy employees make happy customers. Our IT employees understand they are direct contributors to the success of our business, and to the success of our customers. When employees feel valued and respected, they bring their best to their job every day." said Keith Collins, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for SAS.

This philosophy earned SAS the No. 2 ranking on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list in 2013. SAS attracts the best talent in the industry by bolstering the thrill of challenging work with employee-friendly benefits. Among the many on-site amenities are health care, recreational facilities, child care and work-life resources.
