We are thrilled to announce we have been shortlisted in the Best Mobility Research Contribution category in the THINK Relocate Awards from Relocate Global. This recognition is a result of our Global Mobility Roundtable™ (GMR) survey and benchmarking projects. The GMR, created and hosted by RELO Direct®, is a non-commercial community for education, networking, and information-sharing established in 2000. Open to HR professionals who manage employee mobility programs for corporations and agencies of the U.S. government, the GMR holds meetings featuring industry experts and panel discussions in regional markets with all meetings webcast live for convenient access by all community members. The GMR also facilities benchmarking studies and completed 15 surveys in 2018, generating 567 respondents and reaching more than 870 relocation and mobility professionals in 591 corporations and government agencies.
The THINK Relocate Award committee considers those research contributors that have added value by advancing what is known about mobility; contributed to theory and academic advancement; led to implementation implications for practitioners; demonstrated practical impact in relation to organizational actions taken in managing mobility in an increasingly global and diverse marketplace; and highlighted an innovative contribution to mobility research with positive relocation benefits.
