Nominate Your Colleague for the MHI Young Professional Network Awards

The MHI Young Professionals Network recently announced a call for nominations for the 2017 Outstanding Young Professional and Mentor award. These awards will recognize two MHI member company employees who have met the award criteria and who have demonstrated excellence in their company and in the supply chain industry. Have a nominee in mind? Consider these four ways you can benefit your colleague by nominating them for the 2017 Outstanding Young Professional or Mentor award.

1. Award Winners Have the Spotlight at ProMat 2017

The winners of the Outstanding Young Professional Award and Mentor Award will be announced at ProMat 2017 during MHI’s Industry Night event on April 5. ProMat 2017 is the largest material handling and logistics expo held in North and South America. Winners will represent themselves and their company in front of manufacturing and supply chain executives from over 110 countries who have come to discover the latest solutions to move their business forward. Nominate your colleague for the MHI YPN awards for a chance to gain valuable exposure and stand out amongst the industry’s leading innovators.

2. Award Winners Receive a Boost in Professional Confidence 

At MHI we believe no hard work should go unnoticed. The MHI YPN awards are a time to give credit and recognition for your nominee’s accomplishments, contributions and leadership. Award winners will receive industry confirmation and acknowledgment from respected peers. Welsh poet George Herbert puts it perfectly, “Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.” With the right combination of talent, confidence and hard work your nominee is guaranteed to go far in the industry.

3. Award Winners Take Their Resume From Good to Awesome

The Outstanding Young Professional and Mentor award are highly notable achievements that will enhance colleague’s resume. When they ask for a promotion, look for their next opportunity or make a lateral career move, the MHI YPN awards will solidify their professional competence and ability to make an impact.

4. Awards Winners Will Receive Public Recognition by MHI

MHI will announce the award winners and provide exposure through the MHI blog, social media, and MHI Solutions Magazine. This is a great opportunity to help your colleague establish there presence as a thought leader in the industry. This will also help facilitate the development of their personal brand.
