Get ready for the SYSPRO Global CEO Awards

At SYSPRO we value outstanding work, and these awards have been created to recognize and reward passion, commitment and excellent performance throughout our business.

The 2022 Awards will have 13 categories, most of which will be open to all employees to nominate candidates. Nominations will be done through a digital vote to nominate system and the final winners will be selected through a combination of most votes and input from EXCO members (in cases of ties).

The 2020 and 2021 awards were a great success, and the 2022 awards are expected to be even bigger and more impactful due to increased employee engagement in the nomination process. Three new categories have been added to recognize outstanding contributions by employees who support the Learning for Growth initiative and the Conversations for Growth (Mentorship) program. The third new category is the People’s Choice Award which will be in recognition of an employee who most clearly demonstrates their contribution to a positive work environment.

Benefits of Winning

  • Full recognition from SYSPRO across all our digital/social media platforms
  • Congratulatory letter from our CEO Jaco Maritz
