Comments about FedEE

  • "Don’t rely on your local people to tell you all the necessary facts - they often don’t know and inconsistent practices may therefore have evolved over the years in every organisation.

    - Simon Macpherson, Management Today, March 28th 2013
  • "FedEE are a reliable service to have to provide international advice to our team on all things HR and payroll. They are not afraid to give their professional opinion and on occasion have gone above and beyond to help us with some of our more complex requests"

    - John Doyle, Irish, Swedish & UK Payroll, Teleflex
  • "Since joining FedEE earlier this year the service and information provided has saved me many hours of research time and the company many Euros on paying for advice from an Employment Lawyer based in Germany.  All my questions have been answered remarkably thoroughly and promptly and in a way that I can understand!  Worth every euro spent on membership."

    - Rachel Franke, Human Resources, Germany
  • "This is one of the best newsletters I receive. Thank you"
