What makes a best place to work in IT?

Computerworld recognizes Nationwide's focus on development and training

2022 marks the 10th consecutive year that Nationwide has been named to the Best Places to Work in IT list by Foundry’s Computerworld. This recognition reflects the emphasis that Nationwide has placed on development and training its employees.

For more than 25 years, Computerworld has been evaluating companies based on workplace culture, benefits offerings, career development, retention and diversity initiatives.

“I’m proud to work with such a talented group of people,” said Jim Fowler, Nationwide’s Chief Technology Officer, “Earning this recognition again is affirmation that our employees feel supported in their roles and have the resources they need to grow throughout their career.”

Since 2020, Nationwide’s new hybrid environment has allowed the company to test new capabilities while working remotely. This flexible workplace model has also enabled Nationwide to lean into new ways of attracting and retaining strong talent. For example, the technology team leveraged LinkedIn Live sessions to recruit jobseekers who could fill open positions on Nationwide’s technology team.

Hosted by Fowler and members from his team, these 20-minute discussions covered different aspects of what working at Nationwide was like and connected potential candidates directly to recruiters.

Employees can work with their managers to create a schedule that works for them. Whether this means coming into the office daily, having a hybrid office/work from home schedule or working from home full-time, this flexibility enables them to excel in their role and create a personalized work-life balance.

This year, Nationwide has consistently been recognized on top workplace award lists including:
