The Expatriate Management & Mobility Award (EMMA) was presented during the FEM black-tie event that took take place in Orlando, Florida USA on September 18, 2014.

The Graebel Relocation Policy Summit Research is a 27-page digest that summarizes in the moment research that is benchmarked with prior years' studies, relocation industry statistics, and the Company's market intelligence documents. Collected data including pulse polls by the 92 executives from the Fortune 500 and Global 100 was based on the participants' identified topics prior to the eighth Annual Graebel Relocation Policy Summit that was held at the organization’s world headquarters last February.

The FEM organization’s global summits provide a forum for human resource and talent management executives to discuss their corporations’ mobility programs and to review findings from the Annual Survey Report conducted by FEM. The Summits are capped with a black-tie awards dinner that honors industry leaders and programs. A jury from a wide spectrum of global industries independently review nominations and select each category’s award winner. Collectively, the panel of judges for the Thought Leadership of the Year award conveyed to the FEM executives that, “The Graebel Relocation Policy Summit research provided rich and current data on global mobility issues from companies and experts. Their approach and the outcome published was a differentiator.”

William Graebel SGMS chief executive officer remarked, “Winning first place for our market intelligence initiatives that include the Annual Policy Summit research is a testament to our team’s tireless drive to provide globally active companies with leading-edge information that will help keep them ahead of the curve in their industries. 2014 marks the eighth consecutive year of the Graebel Relocation Policy Summit. We are pleased to host this annual forum for human resource and talent management executives, because we believe that this enables them to probe challenges, and share solutions as they network with peers. This research study that has been honored with the first place EMMA is a compilation of their findings. I would personally like to thank everyone for their collaborative efforts that have led to this prestigious honor from FEM.

Last year, Graebel Relocation inaugurated its successful Summit research platform in the EMEA and APAC regions. Recently, we hosted our second annual Relocation and Assignment Policy Summit at our EMEA center in Prague. Research from this session will be summarized and published for companies in the near future," concluded Graebel.
