American Family Insurance lauded as a top workplace for IT professionals

Madison, Wis. (June 28, 2004) Computerworld magazine has again selected American Family Insurance as one the best workplaces in the country for information technology (IT) professionals, the Madison-based insurer announced today.

Computerworld compiled its Top 100 by analyzing results of a survey sent to 17,000 employees at nominated companies. Rankings were based on company offerings in the categories of compensation and benefits, diversity, career development and training, and employee retention.
