HDI Award Nominations are now being accepted!

Simply the Best!

Do you have what it takes to be a winner?

Validation feels pretty good, doesn't it? Acknowledgement and celebration goes a long way toward keeping employees satisfied, teams performing at a high level, and leadership engaged.

Each year, HDI honors the very best in the technical support and service management profession, recognizing the individuals, teams, and organizations that have achieved and maintained the highest standards of quality and customer satisfaction. Every finalist gets one free pass to attend the award ceremony, hosted at one of HDI's two annual events.

 

 

Best Service and Support Technician

Formerly Desktop Support Technician of the Year

Is there an outstanding desktop support technician in your organization who you feel deserves recognition for their commitment, dedication, and service to your customers? Does the technician who visits your desk provide outstanding service? Does someone on your team consistently exceed expectations? Here’s your opportunity to see them recognized for their efforts!

Each year, HDI works jointly with the local chapters to identify and award the industry's top desktop support technician. Technicians who are nominated at the local chapter will have an opportunity to compete with their peers locally, regionally, and globally for this prestigious award. The winners from each of HDI's local chapter regions are invited to participate in the ceremony held during SupportWorld Live in the spring. The deadline to submit a nomination is October 31.
