Axxess Named 2017 Best Place to Work in IT by IDG's Computerworld

Home Health Technology Leader Takes Top Spot For Second Consecutive Year

DALLAS, June 12, 2017 /CNW/ -- Axxess, the fastest growing home health technology company, has been named the number one small place to work in IT for the second year in a row by IDG's Computerworld 2017 Best Places to Work in IT.

Based on comprehensive questionnaires and in-depth employee surveys, Axxess took the top spot among 29 organizations with fewer than 1,000 employees. Organizations were ranked based on their ability to develop outstanding IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation.

"It is gratifying to be recognized again as the best place to work in IT because we are intentional about creating an environment where people collaborate and innovate while doing meaningful work," said John Olajide, Axxess' president and chief executive officer. "While doubling our workforce over the past two years, we have consciously invested daily to maintain a rewarding experience for everyone in the Axxess family."

The Axxess culture – which was also recently honored by Modern Healthcare as a "Best Place to Work in Healthcare" – emphasizes excellence, innovation, transparency, diversity and inclusion in all company activities. This has led to multiple innovations that are firsts for the home health sector, including the first device-agnostic mobile app for clinicians, the first-ever OASIS app feature enabling patient assessments and documentation by clinicians anywhere, and most recently the pilot of AxxessCARE, a completely new tool that connects home health agencies to qualified clinicians in real-time.

"As technology moves to the strategic center of every business, the ability of the enterprise to attract and retain skilled IT talent has become critically important," says Ken Mingis, executive editor of Computerworld.  "The 100 organizations on our 2017 Best Places to Work in IT list keep their tech employees happy and engaged by offering generous salaries, top-notch benefits, continuous training, and access to cutting-edge technologies. In empowering their tech workforce, these firms gain competitive advantage, and we applaud them for their achievements."
