    On September 8th, AIRINC attended the Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) APAC Summit at the Hotel Fort Canning in Singapore. Pictured here at our 'Green' booth are me, Amber Chan, and Jason Tang. It was a one-day summit with exhibitions from various global mobility service providers and an award ceremony recognizing recent team and individual achievements in the region.

    Lucy Taylor and Sarah White were among the several panelists who discussed the key challenges and opportunities in APAC post pandemic as well as taking a holistic approach to mobility and employee experience. During the masterclass session, Kerwin Guillermo from HPE also shared stories that demonstrate how HPE builds its partnerships between corporate and providers.

    As one of the Global Sponsors, AIRINC had the opportunity to lead one of the corporate-only roundtable sessions. It was a 40-minute, intimate conversation with about 10 attendees. Jason Tang from AIRINC APAC facilitated a discussion on managing a remote workforce. The conversation was dynamic throughout the session, with many sharing their organizations’ respective philosophy and approach in handling remote work arrangements and subsequent compensation.

    To close the day, we attended the APAC EMMAs (Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards) Presentation and were thrilled to be highly commended for the ‘Best Partnership between a Corporate Organization and a Service Provider' with HPE.

    We were excited to meet many new faces as well as reconnect with peers in the global mobility community in Singapore for the first time since the start of the pandemic. Following the event, we planted more trees as part of our 'Going Green' campaign. Congratulations to all the award winners, and we look forward to attending more in-person events in the coming months!
