Passion for technology and people makes a career difference

The following blog post was written by Avanade alum Chris Miller.

At Avanade, IT means “Innovation and Transformation,” and that’s nowhere more apparent than in the way our internal IT team leads the way in understanding and leveraging new technologies to position our company for success and to serve our clients. We are actively transforming our own digital workplace and developing innovative solutions that we can share throughout our diverse and passionate teams and with our world-class clients.

Because of this work, I’m proud to announce that Avanade has been recognized by IDG’s Computerworld 2015 Best Places to Work in IT and that we are #3 on the list for midsize organizations – a jump of six places since the 2014 awards. This annual awards program recognizes the top 100 IT work environments through a comprehensive survey covering the career development, training, benefits and other offerings that companies provide. At Avanade, our culture of innovation shines through in our programs for employees that allow many paths for growth and development as IT professionals. We value passion for technology, flexibility, and, of course, fun.

The challenges for technologists have probably never been greater as businesses rely more and more on the IT team to ensure dependability, efficiency, and competitiveness in rapidly changing environments. Avanade’s core value of demonstrating passion for technology begins internally and extends to our clients as we help them navigate their options and opportunities. The chance to create change and help people are key drivers for our employees, and our expertise in Microsoft technologies and business solutions such as cloud and managed services give us plenty of opportunities to create meaningful, client-centric solutions that work for people and business.

I’m proud of the support we give our employees at Avanade, including in-class, online and hands-on training, because these activities inspire and empower them to become successful and valuable members of our company. We recognize and encourage opportunities to provide compensation for professional technical certifications and expert designations. And because we provide our employees the tools and support they need, we can extend flexibility for how and where they choose to work. And of course, we have a program that gives our employees the chance to buy cutting-edge equipment and gadgets.
