SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, is among Computerworld magazine's Best Places to Work in IT list.
This list spotlights organisations that are creating a challenging work environment for their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation.
"Our employees know the importance of their work in SAS' business success. The SAS corporate culture inspires them and allows them to excel," says Suzanne Gordon, VP and CIO for SAS.
"At SAS, we're dedicated to fostering an environment of innovation and creativity. The spirit of the SAS culture shows in our employees' loyalty, both to our company and to serving our customers."
This philosophy has earned SAS the number one ranking on the Fortune 100 "Best Companies to Work For" list for two consecutive years. Focusing on people and relationships leads to more productive, satisfied and dedicated employees. A healthy work-life balance is critical to the company's success.
"To be among the Best Places to Work in IT, it's not enough to seek out and hire the most talented IT professionals, offer them competitive pay and provide great benefits," says Scot Finnie, editor in chief, Computerworld.
