We all know the tremendous benefits of recognition and the positive impact it has on our teams. The HDI Awards Program is a prime opportunity to recognize the superstars on your support team. We have two awards programs: Service Desk Analyst of the Year and Desktop Support Technician of the Year.

Your company may nominate up to two people in each category. This quality program is FREE and a benefit of your HDI Membership (the Analyst and Technician do not have to be a member). HDI San Antonio has an outstanding program in place for the Awards Program, with top-notch judges scoring candidates and selecting San Antonio’s top support analysts. Last year’s local Desktop Support Technician of the year winner, David Saenz, CPS Energy, went all the way to the finals and was recognized at the HDI national conference.  Take a look at how CPS Energy celebrated David's achievement:
