Everybody loves winning something – be it first place in the science fair or Best Picture at the Oscars. Awards give us a sense of validation for the hours upon hours of hard work that goes into creating something special, which is why we at Synaptics are pleased to even be considered for a handful of awards in 2014-15.
Starting off on a high note, Synaptics received GOLD in the 2014 Best in Biz awards for Company of the Year (Large, 1,000+ employees), and our CEO Rick Bergman received the Bronze medal for Executive of the Year (Large). For the 2014 Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) Awards, Synaptics was given the award for Favorite Analyst Semiconductor Company. We competed against a lot of outstanding companies for these awards, so we don’t take these honors lightly.
Moving on to 2015, Synaptics has been shortlisted for two awards that will be announced in the coming months. First, the Global Mobile Awards, where we are a finalist for the Mobile Connect Award for Best Authentication & Identity Solution. This is a big deal; not just for Synaptics, but for biometrics as a whole as we consider it to be the future of authentication-based security. The Global Mobile Awards are the cream of the crop for mobile awards, and we’ll find out if we take home the top prize in March at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Also in March, we’ll find out if Synaptics will take home the PaymentEye FinTech Innovation Award in the Best Mobile Wallet category. You can actually help us out with this one by voting for Synaptics here.
There’s a lot to be excited about here from the past, present, and future, but we want to take this moment to recognize all of the hard work from everyone at Synaptics that allows us to even be considered for all of these awards.
Now let’s achieve even more in 2015.
