What can we do that's new, different and better to make their lives easier?
I did my best to keep up as well, and my notes have been combined with feedback from the other sessions and compiled in a summary report that’s just been released.
We’re looking forward to our next APAC insideMOBILITY event, and if you’d like to be involved in these learning forums sponsored for Talent Mobility professionals, please let me or your Graebel representative know as soon as possible!
Our APAC Summit was held at the JW Marriott Hotel in Singapore—in my mind, a perfect symbol of the Mobility industry. It’s a historic building with a modern, renovated interior. Mobility respects tradition while embracing new opportunities, technology and thoughts.
As a Graebel team member in charge of Supply Chain Management in the APAC region, I looked forward to facilitating one of the morning breakout sessions, knowing there would be plenty to learn from a supplier’s perspective.
An interesting diversion into how mobility and talent management may have different goals but why they should work together.
We doubled our attendance since last year!
But here’s a secret…as we sit in on the meetings,
members of the Graebel team learn too, important things like:
Director, Supplier Development,
Singapore, September 2017
These are among those keywords and phrases that kept coming up in my mind. While facilitating the roundtable, all of these elements were reminiscent of our high expectations and rigorous standards that we hold our suppliers to as it relates to the customer experience.
Words of Wisdom from the Summit
What's important to our clients?
The characteristics of an exceptional Mobility programme leader – the consensus seemed to define a “confident risk taker.”
A Productive Day in Singapore
For the last three years, Graebel has sponsored the annual APAC Workforce Mobility Strategy Summit and similar insideMOBILITY™ forums around the world. We see an increasing number of Talent Mobility professionals participating to learn from one another about innovations, trends and best practices.
It’s expected of every Graebel employee at all levels. Who do we learn from? Lots of sources–including our clients.
What are their challenges?
Join us next time...
We had a graphic recorder in each of the breakout rooms, who listened in on our session and recorded the flow of the discussion with drawings and notes. Fortunately, we wrapped up when we did or that artist would have had to mark up a second wall!
Defining success and return on investment – lots of things came up during the roundtables, but “skill set development” was mentioned quite a bit.
