Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) EMEA EMMAs (Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards) 2018
On Friday 9 November 2018, the winner of this year’s Vendor Partnership – Relocation Management Company of the year award was announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the InterContinental O2, London.
The FEM EMMAs are the premier awards for the global mobility and International HR industry and on Friday night, following a highly successful two-day Summit, key figures and leaders gathered to celebrate the brightest and the best in the EMEA region.
Claire Tennant-Scull, Global Head of Content and Events Director at FEM said: “The EMMAs are the premier Awards ceremony for Global Mobility in EMEA and across the globe, with the greatest breadth of categories for both corporate professionals and service providers.
This year more than ever too, I think we can claim that our Summit and Awards truly reflect global mobility right across EMEA, as we have seen a huge increase in entries from all parts of Continental Europe, as well as Turkey and the Middle East.
EMMAs entries are rigorously judged by a team of fiercely impartial, highly experienced, senior figures in the industry, who are drawn from a range of disciplines across the EMEA region and who give up their own free time to carry out a very thorough and demanding process. So, these awards carry tremendous kudos. It’s so important to receive recognition among your peers for innovation and hard work and so I think the winners and all those on the shortlist should feel extremely proud.
This year too, we have received entries from individuals and companies who have never taken part in the EMMAs before, so it’s invigorating to have so many new faces at the awards and to see how the industry is developing and bringing on new talent. I think the results were very interesting, and reflective of the change that is occurring across the industry. We were so pleased to receive such good feedback on many of the entries from the judges.”
This year the FEM EMMAs saw entries across a diverse set of categories, and the independent judging panel made up of industry experts remarked on the high standard of the entries.
Judged against a strict set of criteria, the competition for this award was fierce.
The judges commented on Tesco and Icon Relocation’s entry: “An innovative approach to a common problem for major companies. I have seen this model attempted before with very limited success, so I could see this being something other companies look to do in the future.”
FEM is very grateful to the EMMAs sponsors: Alchemy, Directors Languages, ECA, Equus Software, Fragomen Worldwide, FIDI, Icon Relocation, Oakwood and Santa Fe also to our esteemed panel of judges for all their hard work and careful consideration of every entry.
