Discovery US is one of 'Best Places to Work in IT': Survey

MUMBAI: US broadcaster Discovery has announced that publication IDG’s Computerworld, the 'Voice of IT Management' has selected the company as one of its '100 Best Places to Work in IT'.

This honour is part of the weekly IT publication’s 13th annual Best Places to Work in IT survey, which is featured in the June 19th issue of Computerworld and online at

Since 1994, Computerworld’s annual “Best Places to Work in IT” feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, based on a questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention.

In addition, this year Computerworld surveyed more than 27,000 IT workers for the list, and their responses factored heavily in determining the rankings. Discovery’s selection was based upon a survey administered to Technology & Media Services employees earlier this year.

Discovery says that it focusses on creating a world class work environment that promotes productivity, enthusiasm and creativity. This enables it to deliver high quality media products and services to its global audience. The fact that Computerworld has acknowledged this long-standing commitment allows Discovery to recruit the most talented and dynamic workforce in the industry.

Discovery adds that enhancing employees’ work/life balance is one of the six prongs of its corporate strategy along with expanding into new technologies and growing internationally.

In 1999, Discovery launched its signature LifeWorks@Discovery Programme to address the needs of the workforce. LifeWorks@Discovery focuses on family support, health and wellness, flexibility and the community. The company also offers numerous training and career development courses designed to promote individual and team development through its Discovery University programme.
