ARI has been named to IDG Computerworld's Best Places to Work in IT for 2014, the fleet management company announced.
This annual ranking recognizes those organizations that offer their IT professionals the opportunity to work on challenging projects using the latest technologies while also providing supportive work environments, superior benefits and competitive compensation.
"We seek to foster an energetic work environment that supports innovation, collaboration and learning," said Steve Haindl, ARI's executive vice president and CIO. "We are honored to be named to this year's list and are proud to be recognized for fostering an environment that promotes teamwork, communication, recognition and professional development."
ARI invests 20 percent of its operating budget into IT and actively works to develop ample opportunities for its IT professionals to engage in projects involving advanced technologies. The ARI University program encourages participation in sessions designed to improve individual performance and enables employees to meet professional goals. The company also offers full tuition reimbursement from the first day of employment.
"Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year's Best Places to Work in IT list," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in their own futures by investing in their employees."
Computerworld compiles the Best Places to Work in IT list 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. The Best Places to Work in IT feature will appear in the June 23 issue of Computerworld and online at Computerworld.com.
