BOSTON (July 12, 2021) – For the second consecutive year, Liberty Mutual Insurance has been named one of IDG’s Insider Pro and Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT, ranking number 28 among large organizations, an increase in 16 spots from 2020. The list, which highlights 100 organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation, selected Liberty Mutual based on results received from the 2021 Best Places to Work in IT survey.
“After a year filled with disruption and uncertainty, this is an incredible honor, reinforcing the work we are doing to create environment in which our employees feel empowered and inspired in their careers,” said Liberty Mutual Insurance Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer James McGlennon. “By prioritizing well-being, emphasizing flexibility as well as continuing to offer competitive career opportunities and benefits, our employees can be successful in both their personal and professional lives.”

The Best Places to Work in IT list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals by Insider Pro and Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition, IDG conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.
“Despite the overwhelming obstacles the pandemic has created for many businesses, IT has managed to thrive and in fact, become more essential in the workplace. Attracting and retaining top IT talent to research, deploy and maintain technology has never been more critical,” said IDG’s Insider Pro editor Katie Hoy. “Companies that have earned a spot on the Insider Pro and Computerworld 2021 Best Places to Work in IT list have been able to foster nimble and flexible work environments – while continuing to keep competitive compensation and benefits steady. Additionally, they foster a spirit of diversity, social responsibility, training and innovation.”
