The Federation of International Employers (FedEE)/La Federación de Empresarios Internacionales is the leading employers organisation for multinational companies. Like most incorporated bodies of its kind, is a company limited by guarantee. It provides its services through a number of operating companies.
FedEE began at a meeting of HR Directors at BP PLC’s Head Office in London during June 1988. We originally received financial support from the European Commission, but we have long operated on an entirely independent basis. We are currently Chaired by Ford Motor Company and, also on our Board, is the World’s second largest law firm “Latham and Watkins”. FedEE has Corporate Members from around the globe, including many of the largest US, Indian and Japanese blue-chip enterprises.
FedEE supports multinational enterprises through a number of strategically critical services. Our principal aim is to assist member companies remain compliant with the employment-related laws in the countries where they operate and to make a close reading of labour market trends. Towards that end, we maintain a huge database of country-by-country laws and legal summaries and provide daily updates of developments around the world.
Although we have attracted many imitators over the years, no other organisation has the expertise, range of relevant HR data or commitment to quality and immediacy of service. Today, the FedEE helpline covers over 120 countries and 90% of enquiries are answered within 4 working hours. That is perhaps why, in successive surveys, all our members have said they would recommend FedEE membership to another multinational organisation.
Because of Brexit, our Administration is now shared between London, UK and Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. Not ony is Cyprus a Member of the British Commonwealth, but the EU’s only Member State in Asia. We also maintain a presence in the Americas and Far East.
The Founder and Secretary-General of FedEE is Robin Chater. Robin has a distinguished career as a leading labour relations journalist, management consultant and Adviser to the European Commission. For further details please see LinkedIn pages
