For the third year in a row, Transocean’s IT organization was listed in Computerworld’s best places to work in IT.

“Computerworld‘s latest recognition of our IT team and culture is especially rewarding when you consider this is our third year in a row to receive this honor,” said John Truschinger, Senior Vice President, Support Services and CIO. “The organizations honored as Best Places to Work are vastly different in many ways, but they tend to share an ability to keep their most productive people on board. We are aligned with our company’s vision regarding our focus on our People, Customers and Execution. Our ability to retain top talent is one of the main reasons we are successful. Our superb IT management team and staff make Transocean a great place to work, and our philosophy that our staff has a career at Transocean and not just a job truly makes a difference. I am proud to be part of Transocean and this remarkable IT team.”

Transocean’s IT team is responsible for planning, developing and supporting the company’s IT infrastructure, applications and IT-related services.

“The organizations on this year’s Best Places to Work in IT list consistently seek out and hire the most talented IT people, offer them competitive pay and provide great benefits,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Many of these organizations have spent years building top-notch IT workplaces, and we applaud the amazing work they’ve done to sustain dynamic environments where IT professionals can work with the latest technologies and play a key role in business-critical projects.”
