Join Cabling Installation & Maintenance as we honor 50 design, installation, and maintenance contractors who exemplify the characteristics that breed success in the ICT trade. The CI&M 50 program is sponsored by STL. Selected by a panel of industry practitioners, the CI&M 50 recognizes excellence in three vital areas of professionalism:
- Customer service
- Mastery of the skills of the trade
The cabling and ICT contracting business is competitive. It takes dedication and commitment to achieve and maintain the attributes of the CI&M 50 program at a high level. Providing excellent customer service is essential, as it is in most businesses, but it is just the beginning. In such a competitive industry, maintaining integrity with clients, partners, suppliers, and even competitors can set an organization apart. And being able to deliver a valuable finished project to the client, that will satisfy their technology needs today and into the future, requires a mastery of the trade as well as a vision for the future.
In 2021, we’ll honor 50 organizations that stand out as examples of the Customer service, Integrity, and Mastery that enhance the image and reputation of our entire industry.
But we need your help to do so. Nominate a contractor, or multiple contractors, that you believe deserves to be recognized for their customer service, integrity, and mastery. We’re accepting nominations from all members of the industry. Whether a contractor has done work for you, installed products you manufacture, served as a subcontractor for you, or worked with you in any capacity, now is your opportunity to give them the credit they deserve.
Nominating a contractor for the CI&M 50 is easy. Fill out this online form with some info about you, info about the contractor you’re nominating, and your observations on why the contractor excels in Customer service, Integrity, and Mastery of the trade.
