More than 200 of Graebel’s top service providers from around the globe accepted our invitation to come to Denver from 8-10 October to network, celebrate success and collaborate on how we can continue to deliver exceptional service to transferees whose care is in our hands.
In a panel discussion led by CEO Bill Graebel, senior Mobility leaders from two of Graebel’s clients – Berna Anderson, Director of Global Mobility with Becton, Dickinson and Kelly Tracy, Manager of Global Mobility with Workday – shared their thoughts on what makes an exceptional transferee experience and described how outsourced relocation services must be consistent with their own value proposition of putting their employees first.
Through interactive polling, attendees indicated that “communication” was the most critical factor in providing exceptional experiences. Participants dug deeper into this topic in workshop sessions, uncovering ways to improve communication related to transferee information, client policies, move status, and other matters.
Keynote speaker Dennis Snow reinforced these customer service principles. In 1994, Dennis launched a division of Disney Institute that works with major organisations around the world who want to emulate the “Disney Approach” to customer service. He since has formed Snow & Associates, Inc. to help organisations define and achieve their goals in that area.
At the close of the conference, we introduced the Graebel Partner Alliance programme, which clearly defines the relationship between Graebel and its Partner companies. The programme lays out mutual expectations and benefits of collaboration.
At the award ceremony and dinner on the 9th, we recognised our top partners for their excellence in service and partnership in the past year.
