Sustainable Agriculture Company Ranked No. 24 for IT Professionals by Computerworld
Computerworld has named Monsanto Company one of its Best Places to Work in IT. Monsanto ranks No. 24 on the 2015 list of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, its fourth appearance on the list.
“This is an exciting time to be in IT at Monsanto,” said Jim Swanson, Monsanto Chief Information Officer. “IT professionals have the opportunity to help solve one of the greatest challenges of our time: finding sustainable ways to nourish a growing world.”
As the world’s farmers will need to feed a global population that is expected to grow to 9.6 billion in 2050, Monsanto teams are innovating how agriculture utilizes information technology.
“Working in IT in agriculture has changed rapidly in the past few years, and it will continue to advance as we work to unlock digital yield,” said Swanson.
“The 100 organizations on Computerworld’s 2015 Best Places to Work in IT list realize that attracting and retaining a highly-skilled technology workforce leads to competitive advantage,” says Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “In a tight market for tech talent, these outstanding employers attract the best and brightest IT pros with generous salaries and top-drawer benefits, then deepen their teams’ engagement with challenging, business-critical projects built around cutting-edge technologies.”
