American Fidelity Named Best Place to Work in IT
Monday, June 18, 2018
American Fidelity, based in Oklahoma City, once again made Computerworld’s list of Best Places to Work in IT. Landing at No. 18 among mid-sized companies, this is AF’s 15th appearance on the list.
“In the past year, IT has continued to undergo changes to help us align more closely to the business and prepare for the future,” said Kim Fisher, chief information officer. “We’ve worked to make our technology easier for our Customers and policyholders to use, such as simplifying and improving our Online Service Center and mobile app. We have also put succession plans in place to set us up for a smooth transition as Colleagues prepare to retire.”
American Fidelity is currently hiring for several positions within the IT team, including software developers, Citrix infrastructure engineer, security analysts and engineers, and technical infrastructure analysts and more.
The Best Places to Work in Information Technology (IT) list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals by IDG's Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducted an extensive survey of IT Colleagues, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.
“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. They recognize that the top tech talent can easily move to the organization that respects them best, and they are determined to be that organization.”
