FedEx named a “Best Place to Work in IT” by Computerworld Magazine


For the ninth time in 10 years, IDG’s Computerworld named FedEx as a 2010 Best Places to Work in IT honoree. In recognizing FedEx, the magazine cited the company’s recognition and training programs that encourage innovation and personal development.

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 just to seek out and hire the most talented IT people, offer them competitive pay and provide great benefits,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “The organizations that made this year’s Best Places to Work list sustain a dynamic work environment in which IT professionals keep their hands on the latest technologies and work on projects that are business critical.”

This represents the third significant honor for the FedEx IT team in June. In addition to being named a “Best Place to Work in IT,” the company was also recognized by CIO Magazine on its “CIO 100” list in its June issue, and FedEx CIO Robert B. Carter was named one of the “100 Most Creative People in Business” in the June issue of Fast Company.
