The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Information and Technology’s (OIT) focus on maintaining a positive, safe, and employee centric workplace culture allowed the Department to deliver innovative technologies to better serve its business partners and customers during an extraordinary year. Adapting to ongoing challenges, while creating an inclusive and supportive environment for staff during the pandemic propelled OIT into IDG’s Insider Pro and Computerworld 2021 Best Places to Work in IT list, ranking 56th among large organizations.
“At OIT, the rich and diverse tapestry of our workforce is powering groundbreaking digital solutions that reflect the Veterans we serve while driving VA into the digital future,” said Acting Assistant Secretary for Information and Technology and Chief Information Officer, Dominic Cussatt. “By employing industry leading talent, the Department is a top IT destination, and this year reflected the best of OIT. The resilience our employees showed during an increased demand for IT services, illustrated the strength of OIT’s culture and our capacity to thrive, despite overwhelming obstacles.” As seen in OIT’s Midyear Review , VA was able to overcome adversity in 2020 and push technological advancements that transcended into 2021; however, the real triumph was how the Department embraced the diversity of ideas, backgrounds, and experiences to achieve these accomplishments.
Computerworld, in partnership with IDG’s Insider Pro, compiles its Best Places to Work in IT list based on a comprehensive questionnaire of organizational offerings such as benefits, career development opportunity, training options and employee retention. IT professionals within the competing organizations are surveyed and their responses help determining the 2021 rankings. Companies that have earned a spot on the Insider Pro and Computerworld 2021 Best Places to Work in IT list “foster a spirit of diversity, social responsibility, training and innovation,” while “continuing to keep competitive compensation and benefits steady” according to Kate Hoy, Editor of IDG’s Insider Pro.
