Power Home Remodeling, RC's 2017 Residential Contractor of the Year and the Fortune No. 13 "Best Company to Work For," announced that it has earned the No. 3 spot in the midsize category on Computerworld’s 2024 "Best Places to Work in IT" list. This marks Power’s highest earning to date and fourth time on the industry-leading list.
“As innovators at Power, we believe in a build-versus-buy mentality when it comes to our tech and software, and the same goes for our culture,” said Timothy Wenhold, Power’s COO, CIO, and Partner. “We want our employees to know their work has purpose, that their work can drive business and success, and they do it alongside a community rather than just colleagues.”
At Power, employees within the Business Technology department — an intentional naming given the division’s role in advancing the business — include unique offerings like:
- Continued learning and upskilling opportunities such as the company’s Code Academy — an immersive, six-month coding boot camp that allows employees to acquire valuable coding and technical skills, and eliminates student loans.
- A “Creatorverse” work environment that blends virtual work and a state-of-the-art, physical workspace, fostering collaboration, creativity, and flexibility.
- A robust social calendar with events like Nitro Create, a semi-annual development conference with themes from hack-a-thons, to education, to community service and an end-of-year celebration and music festival in Mexico
“Technology is playing an increasingly important role in modern business. IT professionals continue to benefit from this trend, as this year’s winning organizations increase staffing and offer a variety of pathways to upskill, reskill, and diversify their teams,” said Rob O’Regan, global director, content strategy, Foundry. “These companies provide a model for IT and HR leaders who are looking for new ways to attract, engage, and retain talent in an increasingly competitive IT environment.”
Power’s Computerworld designation follows a suite of awards the company has earned in 2023 including, the #13 placement on the 2023 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list, #49 on the PEOPLE Companies That Care® List, and many more.
