Think Relocate Awards Think Global People Awards

6. Excellence in technology or analytics – employee or family

This award recognises the effective and innovative use of technology and/or data analytics by a relocation organisation or HR team to bring about employee and/or family benefits within the context of relocation.

To be eligible, the technology must be innovative and support relocation or international assignments, or make the experience better for those managing and/or undergoing a move. Data analytics must be demonstrated to have been compiled and utilised to facilitate and improve mobility at local, regional or global levels. Suppliers from any sector can enter to showcase their technology/analytics and highlight how these improve the employee/family relocation experience, demonstrating innovative strides.

As potential examples, relocation management and tax-tracking software that are pushing the boundaries in employee and family support, and solutions for global mobility training or communication and engagement or employee/family cross-cultural support, are eligible. Data analytics might encompass, for example, innovative resourcing (recruitment, selection, deployment) and talent management solutions, promoting employee/family mobility.

Entrants can explain the changes, efficiencies and cost savings that have resulted from the introduction of the technology/analytics, why they were necessary and how these solutions have facilitated, changed and improved delivering relocation support to the benefit of employees, partners and families moving locally, regionally or globally.

Entrants must:

  • Highlight how your entry is inspirational and why you should win this award category
  • Explain how an exceptional quality and personalised mobility experience is provided and to whom it applies
  • Demonstrate a responsive, resource-efficient and cost-effective service, showing how value is added to the mobility experience
  • Show how you manage your own people so that they demonstrate commitment, engagement and passion in service delivery

The judges will be looking for proof of consistently high standards and excellent service – for example, customer/client testimonials, feedback forms and/or survey results.

The judges will assess the effectiveness of the product or service and how relocation organisations or HR teams have used the technology innovatively to benefit the recipient organisation and employee/family customers/users.

There will be an opportunity to demonstration your technology remotely to the judges in March/April after the closing date for entries.
