PPG Again Named By IDG’s Computerworld Among 2014 ‘Best Places To Work In IT’

PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) announced today that IDG’s Computerworld has named the company to its 2014 “Best Places to Work in IT” list. For the second consecutive year, PPG is among 100 top organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing exceptional benefits and compensation, according to the publication. The current issue of Computerworld features organizational profiles and results from the 21st annual Best Places to Work in IT survey.

Notably, PPG ranked first for career development this year, up from second in this category for 2013. The publication noted PPG’s approach in working with IT staffers to develop personalized career plans and gain a broad range of work experiences.

“PPG is honored to be named again among the world-class, innovative organizations on this list,” said Werner Baer, PPG vice president, information technology. “Our focus on employee development, innovation and global growth helps us create an environment offering opportunities for IT professionals at all levels. From paid internships to successful onboarding and development programs for both entry-level and experienced employees, the aptitude and culture of PPG’s IT function rival those of many top employers worldwide.”

The Computerworld 2014 Best Places to Work in IT recognition is the latest earned by PPG’s IT organization. Earlier this month IDG's CIO magazine named PPG as a recipient of the 2014 CIO 100.
