Monsanto continues to pile up workplace honors with IT recognition

Monsanto Co. continues to pile up the workplace honors, recently being named one of the Best Places to Work in IT by Computerworld.

Monsanto was ranked 24th on the 2015 list of the top-100 work environments for technology professionals, the fourth time it has been recognized by Computerworld.

In 2015, Monsanto was identified as a Great Place to Work in seven countries individually, and overall in Europe and Latin America. For the eighth consecutive year, Monsanto was chosen as one of the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity and was named by Corporate Responsibility magazine as one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens for 2015. Monsanto also was named to Fortune magazine's 2015 list of World's Most Admired Companies.

Computerworld Editor-in-Chief Scot Finnie said the top 100 organizations on the magazine’s list of best places to work in IT list realize that attracting and retaining a highly-skilled technology workforce leads to competitive advantage.

“In a tight market for tech talent, these outstanding employers attract the best and brightest IT pros with generous salaries and top-drawer benefits, then deepen their teams’ engagement with challenging, business-critical projects built around cutting-edge technologies,” Finnie said.

Monsanto Chief Information Officer Jim Swanson said this is an exciting time to be in IT at Monsanto.

“IT professionals have the opportunity to help solve one of the greatest challenges of our time -- finding sustainable ways to nourish a growing world,” Swanson said. “Working in IT in agriculture has changed rapidly in the past few years, and it will continue to advance as we work to unlock digital yield.”
