We will continue to invest in them, create an environment of opportunity and make them aware of their value.”

CLEARLINK began in Utah over ten years ago as a web-design agency with deep technology roots. With over 1,200 local employees, the company’s success is continually re-invested in engaging employees. Ongoing development opportunities, tuition reimbursement, flexible work schedules and 100% employer paid health care are a few benefits. The IT department at CLEARLINK gives technologists the freedom to solve problems and be uniquely creative. The team participates in ‘Brain Share Fridays’ and creates open forums to share ideas, keeping CLEARLINK on the cutting edge of technology. Managers focus on the culture and daily experience of their employees to generate an authentic connection within their teams, rather than manage their actions.

"Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year's Best Places to Work in IT list," said Scot Finnie, Editor in Chief of Computerworld. "Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in their own futures by investing in their employees."
