Computerworld names Domino's one of Best Places to Work in Technology
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - June 18, 2003 - Domino's Pizza, the recognized leader in pizza delivery, announced today that IDG's Computerworld selected it as one of the top workplaces for information technology (IT) professionals. This honor is part of the weekly IT newspaper's 10th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey, which was published in the June 9 issue and online at Computerworld.com. Domino's Pizza ranked 21st overall and was the only Quick Service Restaurant chain named on the list.
Since 1994, Computerworld's annual "Best Places to Work in IT" feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, this year Computerworld surveyed more than 11,500 IT workers for the list, and their responses factored heavily in determining the rankings. This was the debut for Domino's on this list.
"For Domino's Pizza to be recognized by such a premier publication is a tremendous honor and compliment," said Tim Monteith Domino's, Pizza Chief Information Officer. "Over the last few years, Domino's has made a commitment to putting people first. This award signifies our focus on creating an environment that truly values and supports people; and provides exciting and challenging technical work for our IT professionals."
In addition to the overall ranking, Domino's was among the top ten in Career Development and Retention, two of five individual categories.
"Our extensive survey of IT workers – from CIOs to help desk technicians – gave us a compelling yardstick with which to measure employers' offerings against the work environments that technology professionals prize most," said Maryfran Johnson, editor in chief of Computerworld. "We've found that the best employers, no matter the industry, are able to retain the best technology people by creating focused, responsive and challenging workplaces."
