In a competitive labor market, one of the biggest challenges that any company faces is recruiting talent to choose their organization over all others.
MSK Named to Computerworld 2019 Best Places to Work in IT List
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) has been selected as one of IDG’s Computerworld 2019 Best Places to Work in IT. MSK ranked No. 26 among large size organizations and top 10 for our benefits package. Since 1994, Computerworld’s annual Best Places to Work in IT feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals. 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 conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.
