Long also pointed to Dimension Data’s corporate responsibility program as an important part of its company culture. Called Heads, Hearts and Hands, it supports a number of charities including the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
“This is reflective of the culture of this organisation that we have this program and we like to help,” he said.
Long was pleased to see the channel vote for a company he holds in such high regard.
“Channel Choice means being recognised by your peer and that is very special to us,” he said. “If customers are looking for somebody that is a top performer, I would think this award lends to influencing that decision.
“There were many good companies that won awards and I’m glad Dimension Data was one of them.”
