HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen rankings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today Global staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey, which we distribute both directly to buyers through our own mailing lists and indirectly by sending service providers the link to send to their clients.
Once collected, response data are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis to score each provider that has a statistically significant sample. For this survey, we required 10 responses from eight companies. We reached out to more than 35 providers of relocation services.

Today’s technology allows organisations to provide instant feedback and help improve company culture and employee retention.
By Jo Faragher
Building engagement is a top-ten priority for HR, with almost 80 per cent of executives rating employee experience as very important, according to Deloitte’s Human Capital Trends research for 2017. If organisations want to improve productivity and business results, a “culture of recognition”—with regular feedback to employees and clarity on their goals—is a step in the right direction.
How to effectively create a data management strategy whilst navigating multiple policy requirements.
By Jayson Saba
When operating across national and continental boundaries, HR and payroll professionals must navigate a monumental maze of requirements that can become quite stressful without the right resources. Generally speaking, the tasks that HR and payroll professionals are required to do can be broken out into three categories:
How many different social media platforms are you on? This technology has taken over our everyday lives, and I recently realised that I have an account for almost every major social media network—LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. Of course, HRO Today is on these networks as well (look us up!). So, being that we are on these platforms all the time, how can we use them to improve the work experience?
I spoke with a few experts for the APAC technology trends article in this issue, and most of them noted the rise in social media and how it can be useful for HR practitioners.
“Employer branding and talent attraction and retention strategies must include social media platforms for engagement and collaboration,” Nicole Cook, managing director of Australia and New Zealand for People Scout in APAC, told us. “Leveraging the human networks through social media and other channels is becoming more important to finding and engaging top talent.”
International experiences remain an important part of employee retention and leadership development. So, let’s keep people moving! Doing so is critical, but a consistent company culture is also important. The role of recognition in the creation of culture is significant. Most HR leaders understand that to drive certain behaviours, values and beliefs you need to recognise employees that exemplify them. At this time of year, I spend a lot of time talking to the CHROs up for awards at our HRO Today North America Forum. Recognition programme development, management, and measurement is one of the key aspects that distinguish the very top of the HR profession from the rest of the profession. We need to learn from them about the importance of recognition and about the need for recognition programmes to be global. Whilst it makes sense to recognise local accomplishments, it is equally critical to bind the entirety of the global enterprise together.
If you find yourself with a problem, and turning to your team, colleagues, and even the internet provides no solution, we can help.
The HRO Today Services and Technology Association is a global association of HR executives, thought-leaders, and industry experts working in roles as practitioners, providers, and analysts who participate in conversations, set industry standards and practices, and network with others in HR technology and services. And of course, we discuss and share best and next practices as well.
