"NextEra Energy is a great place for information technology experts to build their careers," said Lakshman Charanjiva, NextEra Energy's vice president and chief information officer. "Our more than 800 highly talented professionals team up with colleagues to work on projects that improve the customer experience, advance our industry and make the world a better place. NextEra Energy consistently earns recognition as one of the most respected and innovative companies in the world. At the heart of all that success is our people."

At NextEra Energy, IT team members, products, systems and processes support virtually every aspect of the company's infrastructure and operations, from power generation, transmission and distribution, and customer service and billing, to supply chain, finance, human resources, cyber security, emergency preparedness and other functions.            

Computerworld's best places to work list is based on an evaluation of companies' offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, a company's IT employees are surveyed by Computerworld, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings. Topics covered in the survey included satisfaction with training and development, compensation, benefits and work/life balance. In addition, employees were asked to rate employee morale in their IT departments, the importance of various benefits, and their agreement with a variety of statements on subjects including career growth, access to new technologies, and whether management treats employees fairly and equally.

"We applaud the organizations on the Best Places to Work in IT list for creating and sustaining dynamic IT work environments," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "This year, several new names have joined the stalwarts that make the list year after year. It's clear that the best IT workplaces are constantly raising the bar with great benefits, new learning opportunities, access to cutting-edge technologies and challenging business-critical projects."
