What determines a great place to work?
Foundry’s Computerworld conducts an annual survey to identify the best places to work for in IT. Nominations were accepted in May 2023 for qualified organizations. Qualifications included having 100 employees or more and a minimum of five IT employees in the U.S.

In May, nominated companies were given a survey and asked to provide employment statistics as well as benefit and program information for the IT department and organization.

"Winning the Best Places to Work in IT award for the third consecutive year is a tremendous achievement for our organization. It highlights the outstanding efforts of our dedicated team,” said Mike Error, BCBSND Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer. “I want to express my gratitude to BCBSND management, HR and every individual in IT who makes this workplace truly special.

From finding new ways to streamline business processes and facilitating the effective operation of the organization’s technological needs to ensuring the continued security of member and company data, the BCBSND IT division is always working hard to keep BCBSND running smoothly and confidently.

“Technology is playing an increasingly important role in modern business.
