FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – LOS ANGELES, March 14, 2022, — SDI, a leading provider of materials handling systems and technology solutions to the retail, wholesale, fulfillment, and E-commerce industries, is launching, for the second year in a row, the Picking Superstars contest. 

This U.S. contest will award a $5,000 check to the best (Distribution/Fulfillment Center) Picking Superstar nomination! AND ten $500 Gift cards to 10 runner-ups! 

The chance to nominate Superstars will start on Monday, March 14th, 2022, and it will end on Friday, May 31st, 2022.

In light of a tumultuous 2020, SDI saw the opportunity to do some good in the community and held this contest for the first time in 2021—giving Distribution/Fulfillment Centers a chance to show additional appreciation for their Superstar employees. 

“Not everyone has the opportunity to thank their employees the way they would like,” Krish Nathan, CEO, said. “With DCs being some of the hardest hit last year, many ‘Superstars’ rose up, people who have gone above and beyond to help their colleagues and organizations stay afloat.” 

“We thought, how can we help those organizations, and their DC managers, show their appreciation for their best employees?” Nathan added. “With an excuse for them to write about how much these players mean to the organization, and through these nominations, give them a chance to win a prize. We’re excited to be able to do it again!” 

If you’d like to nominate anyone in your Distribution/Fulfillment Center (picker, packer, shipper, maintenance, etc.) fill out a Nomination Form at: www.SDI.SYSTEMS/PICKING-SUPERSTARS and tell us, in 300 to 500 words, why this person is a ‘Superstar’. How do they make the DC/FC a better place? How do they go above and beyond? How do others know they care? 

A nominating committee selected by SDI will review all submissions and pick the winners.
