Company contributions: what we want to see

The Network is designed to bring together global mobility professionals, both those who work in-house for multinational companies and those who deliver services as part of the vendor supply chain, in order to share best practice, distil knowledge and network with one another.

Companies with profiles on the Network should include in their profile relevant Company information such as their Company description, the services they can provide, all products on offer and partnering strategy.

Depending on their sponsorship tier, some Companies will be allowed to publish unlimited content on the Website. In these posts and videos, Companies should publish useful, interesting and engaging information in order to attract new and returning visitors.

Examples of suitable topics to cover include changes to legislation which may impact service, new product launches, Company developments (e.g. press releases), thought leadership and interesting facts around the services offered. Demonstration of expertise is welcomed and encouraged, whether through white papers, infographics or shared documents.

Companies’ content should help to ensure an active, dynamic and informative feel to the Network and should encourage dialogue between potential partners.

Company contributions: what we don’t want to see

Companies should only publish information relevant to a global mobility audience.

Large amounts of sales and/or targeted information should not be included on the Network and may be removed. The Network should not be seen as a sales tool, but rather as a forum for engaging with the wider global mobility audience.

The Website is not intended to replace your Company website or blog. Do feel free to link to information elsewhere, but do so in a way that still offers valuable content to the readers on the website. Please be sure this is in accordance with our Editorial Policy.
