Embracing new realities

Welcome to the Belgian Corporate IT Awards 2022, the most prestigious initiative aimed at honoring, every year, the companies from the private and public sector that deliver tremendous operational excellence, measurable business advantage, tangible customer experience or outstanding impact through leading-edge implementation and usage of information technology.

When technology has become mission-critical for all businesses throughout the economy, and amplified by the pandemic and the proliferation of digital platforms, CIOs in every industry are recognizing that their ability to innovate and to deliver comes down to one thing: having the right tech talents. As a result, the war for IT and Tech talents is getting fiercer and spreading to new fronts as demand for crucial roles -programmers, data scientists, software engineers…- skyrockets. Today, it is very clear that attracting and retaining tech talents is not an HR problem, but a top-ranking priority for IT departments, not to say a matter of survival.

In this context, the Corporate IT Awards 2022 will solely explore how companies -corporations, solutions providers or technology vendors- are not just responding to the war for tech talents, but also capitalizing on those talents to sustain -and thrive in- the next future. More specifically, the awards will examine and honor companies that are going the extra mile to hire the right profiles, repurpose their talent management strategies, improve their talent agility and resilience, enable employee mobility, set up reskilling/upskilling programs, and keep their Tech workforce engaged in a smart way.

As such, the Awards 2022 will be an outstanding barometer to evaluate the agility, adaptability and innovation capability of both corporate organizations and service providers in hiring, developing and retaining Tech talents. And contrarily to most award initiatives, the Corporate IT Awards remain fully objective and neutral year after year, through a clear and transparent process supervised by an independent Jury made of former CIOs, renowned technology experts, and selected business leaders.

Finally, and upon the philosophy that makes our initiative so unique and so prestigious since inception, the awards are given to companies rather than to individuals. As such, they are a hallmark of excellence not just for an IT department but also for an organization as a whole without to forget its clients, partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders. In addition, they represent an extraordinary recognition of corporate excellence and reputation.

Award winners will be revealed and celebrated during the edition of the CIO Leadership Summit 2022 on 24 March 2022.

Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to have your Tech talents-related achievements and efforts recognized. We look forward to get your application very quickly !
