Editor’s Note: Computerworld chose Quicken Loans as the #1 "Best Place to Work in Information Technology" for the third year in a row. Our CEO, Bill Emerson, couldn’t wait to share the news last Thursday evening, as soon as he heard. Here is his email.
From: Emerson, WilliamSent: Thursday, June 14, 2007 7:38 PMTo: All CompanySubject: It's a three-peat!!! Good afternoon, everyone. I have great news to share! Computerworld magazine has named us the #1 "Best Place to Work in Information Technology" for the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW!!! The list will appear in the June 18th issue of Computerworld, along with an article featuring interviews with Frank Laura and several of our Technology Team members. Along with the article will be a photo of those same folks taken a few weeks ago on the court at the Quicken Loans Arena... our way of highlighting the coolness of the "Q" Express!!! Like other Best Place to Work awards (we’ve won a few now), the rankings were based largely on an anonymous survey that 250 members of our Technology Team completed. The folks at Computerworld said that the constant theme appearing throughout these surveys were comments about our culture, ability to take ownership of projects, work collaboratively with other teams, and to make a difference by building, not outsourcing, our technology! Following is a news release with some additional information about the selection process. Congratulations to everyone involved in making this a great place to work for people in any career field... which is everyone!! "You’ll see it when you believe it!" And we believe! Bill
