June 20, 2011 – For the tenth time in 11 years, IDG’s Computerworld named FedEx as a 2011 Best Places to Work in IT honoree. In recognizing FedEx, the magazine cited the company’s focus on award programs and charitable activities.
The list recognizes 100 organizations that challenge their IT staff while providing great benefits and compensation. Consistently ranked among the world’s most admired and respected employers, FedEx inspires its team members to remain “absolutely, positively” focused on safety, the highest ethical and professional standards and the needs of their customers and communities.
“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,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Smart IT people realize that they need to get up to speed on their employer’s revenue opportunities. The organizations that made this year’s Best Places to Work list are creating a work environment that both trains and encourages IT personnel to pursue business-driven priorities.”
This represents the second significant honor for FedEx IT in June. In addition to being named a “Best Place to Work in IT,” FedEx Freight was recognized earlier this month by CIO Magazine on its “CIO 100” list.
