  • Practices & Salary Reports
    Annual 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.
  • Focus Papers
    Regularly-produced, in-depth research and analysis on trending industry topics. Use these to stay on top of trends and make informed business decisions.

  • 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.
