For just $295 a year, HDI members receive full access to the following awesomeness:
Practices & Salary Reports
Exclusive access to research reports that explore the day-to-day operations and compensatory practices of support centers and desktop support operations around the world. Note: Membership is the only way to access this exclusive research, as these reports are not sold commercially.
Exclusive access to research and analysis on trending industry topics. Use these to stay on top of trends and make informed business decisions.
We built a member-exclusive community because HDI members asked for it! This private online community is designed for peer learning, collaboration, and knowledge sharing. Yes, it really is all that.
Local Chapter Meetings
Don't limit your interactions to the virtual world! Participate in meet-ups to network with peers, learn from guest speakers and industry experts, build lasting friendships, and make professional connections. A virtual local chapter (vChapter) is available to members who don’t have a local chapter nearby.
Developed by the HDI International Certification Standards Committee, the HDI Support Center Standard lays out best practices for high-performing support centers, while the HDI Certification Standards identify core competencies for roles in customer service and technical support. The certification standards also prepare individuals for HDI certification exams.
Members can nominate themselves, their colleagues, and their teams for prestigious, industry-recognized HDI awards and show the world that they’ve achieved the highest standards of quality and customer satisfaction. Brag about yourself and your team!
Exclusive access to deep dives into key topics and issues—delivered straight to your inbox.
