Four New Jersey companies earned top spots on IDG Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT 2018 list.

Newark-based Prudential Financial ranked No. 8 and Mount Laurel-based Holman Enterprises ranked No. 48 in the large organization category (5,000+ U.S. employees).

Jersey City-based oXya ranked No. 14 and Edison-based Avaap ranked No. 17 in the small organizational category (<1,000 U.S. employees).

“Strong culture is a key differentiator that benefits our employees, customers and partners,” said Avaap Founder and CEO Dhiraj Shah. “We make significant investments in our people and providing a rewarding work experience with competitive rewards. It allows us to attract the industry’s best talent and build a diverse team with knowledge and expertise on EHR and ERP enterprise applications and how industry leaders are leveraging best practices, whether that is clinical improvement or operational efficiency. Earning this recognition is incredibly meaningful to our business as it validates our commitment to a corporate culture focused on delivering quality services while fostering an enjoyable and positive work experience.”

“oXya prides itself on excellence and quality of its employees, which are the same criteria used by Computerworld for making their selection. We’re honored to be named as one of the 100 Best Places to Work in IT for 2018 – it is the second year in a row that we win this prestigious award,” said Melchior du Boullay, general manager, Americas, at oXya. “oXya prides itself on having 98 percent customer satisfaction rating, which is the highest in our industry. Our employees play the most important role in our success; we invest in our workforce, so each employee can grow professionally, in a rewarding and nurturing work environment. As a result, oXya enjoys both fast growth and an extremely low employee turnover.”

To land on the list, IDG Computerworld sent out a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. Each company was required to have a minimum of 300 total employees at a U.S. headquarters and a minimum of 30 IT employees in the U.S. with at least 50 percent of their IT employees based in the U.S.

“Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen a tight market for tech talent become even tighter,” said Computerworld executive editor Ken Mingis. “Computerworld’s 2018 Best Places to Work in IT list highlights that the companies offering the best working environments are not satisfied with rolling out one or two initiatives. They seek an edge in the talent marketplace through a combination of competitive salaries, great benefits, access to training, and the deployment of cutting-edge technologies.”
