Almost 500 organisations have registered for our Best Places to Work in IT 2003 survey, making this the most definitive census of IT professionals' workplaces ever conducted in the UK.
Our study will showcase the best employers of IT professionals and highlight employment best practice for other IT departments to follow.
We want to give great workplaces for IT professionals the recognition they deserve. Successful organisations can expect to gain an enhanced reputation in the IT recruitment market and receive substantial publicity and visibility.
If you are registered, we will be contacting the head of your IT department soon and asking them to complete an initial shortlist questionnaire. We will use this to identify 100 organisations of all sizes across 10 industry sectors that are shining examples of how to attract, retain, motivate and empower an IT team.
We will then canvass opinion from staff in shortlisted departments. Finally, our expert panel will choose the UK's best place to work in IT, large and small, in each of our 10 categories.
The members of the judging panel for Best Places to Work in IT 2003 combine the very best of business, IT and employment expertise. They are: Computer Weekly, our sister magazine Personnel Today, Cranfield School of Management, Investors in People, British Computer Society, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, DLA, E-Skills UK, The Work Foundation and the Federation of Small Businesses.
