Lake Saint Louis, Mo., June 17, 2019 – National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), a leading provider of software solutions to utility and telecommunication companies was named a Best Place to Work in Information Technology (IT) by IDG’s Computerworld, ranking no. 13 among midsize organizations (1,001 – 4,999 employees). 2019 marks NISC’s 16th straight year on the list and 17th recognition overall.

“We are humbled and honored to be selected as a top employer in the information technology field,” said NISC president and CEO Vern Dosch. “Our employees are the heartbeat of this organization and their knowledge and expertise is essential in helping NISC stay ahead of the curve in the technology industry. The fact that this award is based off feedback from our employees means even more and speaks volumes about the work we do to provide our employees with the best possible careers at NISC.”

While competitive salaries and benefits packages, retirement plans and paid time off all factor into Computerworld’s list, it’s also the opportunities for employee growth and empowerment that play a role in companies receiving the recognition.

“The market for IT talent remains very tight, and employers continue to focus on finding and holding on to the best people,” said Computerworld executive editor Ken Mingis. “Our 2019 survey shows again that the Best Places to Work in IT are dynamic organizations that provide top pay and a broad array of programs and benefits designed to make them attractive places to work. Many show that they have a commitment to training, to diversity and to improved communication and teamwork.”

NISC was also named a 2019 Top 10 Workplace by the Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network, which recognizes local businesses committed to recruiting and retaining talented young professionals.
