CSC awarded Top Workplace for 15th consecutive year and Rod Ward is Delaware Business Times' large for-profit CEO of the Year

WILMINGTON, Del. – CSC® has been named the #1 Top Workplace this year by The News Journal, and has been honored as a Top Workplace for 15 consecutive years. The list is based solely on anonymous employee feedback gathered through a third-party employee engagement partner, Energage, and measures various culture drivers, including alignment, execution, and connection.

"At CSC, we're driven by a strong purpose and mission," says CEO Rod Ward. "More importantly, we are an enduring company, built by our employees, through their tenacity, agility, and integrity. They’re the reason we’re the #1 Top Workplace this year. They deserve the credit, and I’m honored to serve them every day as CEO. During one of the most challenging years in the history of our company—and of the world—CSC was able to thrive because of our close-knit entrepreneurial culture and resilient spirit. That culture and spirit are the foundation of our success."

Almost simultaneously, Rod was named CEO of the Year by Delaware Business Times for the large for-profit business sector. In an awards ceremony in July, Rod was honored for his forward thinking, open and honest updates that create a culture in which CSC continues to thrive, and for putting employee health and wellness first during a tumultuous year for the world—all while being instrumental in doubling the value and number of employees of CSC globally over the last five years.

"People often ask what makes CSC special and different from others. CSC is more than a company, it is a community of people coming together to take care of each other and our customers," says Jackie Smetana, executive vice president, CSC Global Service Operations and Human Resources. "We are privileged to be named #1 Top Workplace and are so proud Rod has been honored with the CEO of the Year award from Delaware Business Times. His leadership is kind, consistent, and inclusive. Despite his modesty, this award couldn’t have gone to a better CEO."
