Computerworld again names SAS to list of 100 Best Places to Work in IT
Analytics leader SAS provides IT professionals with a unique workplace culture and innovative environment that helps them grow and thrive in their careers. Challenging and rewarding work combined with highly competitive benefits and compensation is why the company was again named to Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT.
SAS recognizes that professional development for employees is cultivated by both a supportive work culture and an encouraging team. Through SAS’ collaborative environment, employees are inspired to think creatively, resulting in cutting-edge analytics for customers.
“Since our employees are at the forefront of our work, taking care of them is a top priority here at SAS. Due to the competitive nature of the technology industry, we know our innovative IT environment full of dedicated employees sets us apart,” said SAS Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer Keith Collins. “SAS’ consistent revenue growth has been possible because of our motivated and committed employees.”
SAS provides substantial employee benefits to foster a healthy and happy workplace where employees are driven to deliver their best. The campus offers amenities such as an onsite healthcare, a free recreation and fitness center, subsidized daycare and dining options – just to name a few.
“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.”
The rankings were determined by IT workers’ responses on comprehensive surveys of employee satisfaction, as well as an examination of the company’s offerings. SAS’ commitment to culture and innovation lead to high retention at the company, and an engaged IT team that’s constantly challenged.
