Presented by the Forum for Expatriate Management, the EMMAs celebrate excellence in global workforce mobility.
In acknowledging WRRI as Relocation Management Company of the Year, the judging panel, made up of mobility professionals from a wide range of global corporations, cited service excellence and “robust structure and culture” among the company’s critical competitive distinctions. Other factors, including WRRI’s 98 percent client satisfaction rate, unmatched financial stability and innovative client cost reduction strategies helped further distinguish WRRI from the other nominees in this category.
“Our colleagues and supplier partners work tirelessly to optimize our clients’ workforce mobility programs and make a positive impact on the lives of the relocating employees we serve each day,” said Aram Minnetian, president of WRRI. “This award is a great testament to the effectiveness of their efforts, and evidence that the impact of their commitment is felt not only across our client base but throughout our industry. We are truly honored to be recognized as Relocation Management Company of the Year."
WRRI was also named runner-up in the Best Knowledge Leadership category, which recognizes excellence in research and subject matter expertise, for its groundbreaking Alternative International Assignments survey. This survey was the first of its kind to examine the growing trend among companies to seek global mobility options beyond the traditional expatriate assignment.
