Heartland Payment Systems(R) Named to IDG's Computerworld 100 Best Places to 
Work in IT List for Third Consecutive Year 
PRINCETON, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/13 --  Heartland Payment
Systems (NYSE: HPY), one of the nation's largest payment processors
and leading provider of merchant business solutions, today announced
that it has been named to IDG's Computerworld 2013 List of Best
Places to Work in Information Technology (IT). This is the third
consecutive year Heartland finished as one of the top 100
organizations that build innovative IT teams while providing superior
benefits and compensation. 
Heartland employs more than 400 IT professionals across three
locations in the United States -- Plano, Texas; Portland, Ore.; and
Jeffersonville, Ind., who are encouraged to pursue their professional
goals within an environment focused on innovation, flexibility, and a
healthy work-life balance. Heartland's IT employees routinely receive
new technology training, as well as rewards and recognition from
Heartland's chief technology officer Kris Herrin and chief enterprise
architect Bryan Thompson. 
"Being recognized for the third year in a row as a top-notch working
environment for IT professionals is an outstanding achievement for
Heartland and our entire IT team nationwide," said Herrin. "Our
400-plus IT employees use the latest mobile, cloud and big data
technologies, in an agile environment, to deliver innovative
solutions to Heartland's merchants as well as the entire company." 
Since 1994, Computerworld's annual "Best Places to Work in IT"
feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology
professionals. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive
questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as
benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In
addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and
their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings. Each
year, 100 organizations are selected by the Computerworld editorial
team to receive this award. 
"We applaud the organizations on the Best Places to Work in IT list
for creating and sustaining dynamic IT work environments," said Scot
Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "This year, several new
names have joined the stalwarts that make the list year after year.
It's clear that the best IT workplaces are constantly raising the bar
with great benefits, new learning opportunities, access to
cutting-edge technologies and challenging business-critical
projects."
