Technology Leaders 'Intel and Acer 'Announce the Smart Workplace Awards

The time has arrived to clear out those desks, tighten those ties and make way for a 'smarter' office as Intel and Acer announce the 'Smart Workplace Awards ' for those employee friendly organizations.
The awards aim to recognize organizations that empower their employees, increase their ability to stay connected through use of technology and make life easy for employees and customers. Technology can often intimidate and confuse employees. Acer and Intel together aim to reward the organizations that use the right blend of man and machine power to increase efficiency and boost their productivity.
"Acer is proud to sponsor the Acer-Intel Smart Workplace Awards" said W.S. Mukund, Managing Director, Acer India. "These awards recognize companies that empower their employees with technology keeping in pace with Acer's mission of breaking barriers between people and technology by empowering them with the latest in technology and design innovation. We wish all the companies the best and may the Smartest Workplace win"
The Awards are targeted at organizations across Delhi (NCR), Chandigarh, Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad and Cochin, Kolkata. Evaluation criteria are broadly based upon Technology infrastructure, Security & Mobility, Office infrastructure and Employee engagement.

"Using the right technology is one of the surest ways to boost productivity at work. Through the Smart Workplace Awards we hope to increase awareness and usage of the latest and most efficient technologies. We are pleased to partner with Acer in this initiative." said R Ravichandran, Director - Sales, Intel South Asia.

The Smart Workplace Awards will be given to a company that provides a holistic working environment for its employees. Winning an award of this caliber will not only increase product sales but will surely attract the best talent in the country.

Entries for the awards are categorized based on six verticals- financial services, industrial markets, consumer markets, infrastructure, information-communication-entertainment and other services. They are further divided according to the number of employees in the organization. While the focus is on the use of technology, the awards recognizes that an office doesn't just comprise smart gadgets and gizmos. An office being a second home is made by its people and it is also this 'human interest' that they would like to factor into their decision making. How technology actually increases the productivity of employees and in fact facilitates their work is also an area of focus.
