Since 2007 FedEE has operated its own, proprietary job evaluation and job pricing system (JEAPS) which allows it to price any job in European principal countries and selected countries around the world.
FedEE is also an educational body with its own established one-year Advanced Diploma Course in Multijurisdictional Employment Law (AdvDip MELL). Graduates of the programme are also entitled to use the job title “HR Counsel” – as this is the trademark property of FedEE.
If you head up HR in a multinational enterprise the answer is not whether you should belong to FedEE, but how you could ever operate effectively without us. Membership is less expensive than you think and offers great value for money. That is why so many multinationals have been in membership virtually from our foundation.
Back in 1963, there were around 7,000 multinational enterprises, but by 2003 this had grown to 80,000 and today it is approaching 500,000. During this period there has been a rapid globalisation of markets in goods and service. Today’s typical multinational is also not the massive manufacturer with 100,000+ staff in 35 countries worldwide, but a 300-person service company with offices in New York, Paris and Hong Kong. The pace of life is getting faster and information overload is a constant threat to HR decision-making.
If you ever feel that you no longer have enough hours in the day, need an independent business view, do not have enough staff, cannot find the critical information you must have within the hour or are tired of waiting around for other service providers – call us, without obligation, on +44 203 608 4412 (or one of our local centres around the world).
