Company comments: 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 are encouraged to engage with the wider audience through using the commenting ability on the website. Comments should be comprehensive and add to the discussion, whether this is to answer the question, ask additional ones to encourage discussion and/or polite discourse on the topic. We expect some information to be thought-provoking and encourage debate, we do ask that comments which have a different opinion are communicated with respect.

Companies’ comments 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 comment where relevant and where they can offer relevant advice, expertise or opinion to the topic at hand.

Sales-focused comments irrelevant to the topic should not be posted and may not only be removed, but result in a removal of the comment ability for a time or permanently. The Network should not be seen as a sales tool, but rather as a forum for engaging with the wider global mobility audience.

While we acknowledge some topics may be controversial and/or invite debate, we expect all individuals to engage in a way that is polite and respectful. We will not abide abusive, disparaging comments and contributions judged as such will not only be removed, but will result in a commenting ban at minimum and a formal ban from the website at worst.

All contributions: reporting a comment

FEM expects all parties, whether company or individual, to engage in a way that is mindful of relevance, courtesy and respect. We operate on a zero tolerance policy for abusive comments. We expect all comments to adhere to this. We will be monitoring comments, but as we are an open forum, we will rely on our network to self-police. Any noticed infractions should be emailed to courtney.ellis-jones@centaurmedia.com with a link to the comment in question. We endeavour to remove any comments which are deemed inappropriate within 12 hours of reporting.
