Topia and Schneider Electric Win Bronze in Brandon Hall Group’s Human Capital Management Excellence Awards

SAN FRANCISCO (September 19, 2019) — Topia, the leading provider of Global Mobility Management (GMM) software, today announced that Schneider Electric’s mobility program was recognized with a Bronze award in Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence awards for “Best Unique or Innovative Workforce Management Program.” Topia supported Schneider Electric’s implementation of revised policies and automated procedures, giving the company better insight into how its mobility program drives value for the organization. This also enabled them to more effectively make decisions about employee relocation as part of the company’s broader business growth and employee engagement strategy.

Award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits. The awards program has recognized leading organizations for 20-plus years, honoring initiatives that are not only innovative but fit the unique needs of the business and create truly remarkable success stories.

“Topia’s goal is to help companies simplify talent mobility and navigate the complexities of a worldwide mobile workforce so they can succeed in an increasingly interconnected global economy,” said Topia CEO Shawn Farshchi. “We know that the ability to have the right people, in the right place at the right time is a competitive advantage, and we’re delighted to partner with global leaders like Schneider Electric to break down barriers between people and places.”

Schneider Electric has a global presence in more than 100 countries. The project to transform the company’s mobility program was designed to create a competitive advantage by aligning relocation policies with mobility purpose and talent segmentation, and to standardize candidate selection criteria. Topia’s solution enabled workflows with task visibility and automation, which generated greater insight into the mobile population and policy impact for Schneider Electric.

“Upgrading our mobility program has resulted in a number of tangible benefits,” said Susanna Warner-Corbacho, VP of International Mobility at Schneider Electric. “We’re better able to match candidates with opportunities, have greater visibility into performance, and are able to offer more flexible move packages and get a clearer picture of projected costs. Perhaps most importantly, we can analyze the strategic purpose for moves more effectively and determine whether the company is achieving our objectives.”

Topia’s unified Global Mobility Management suite enables companies to remove barriers between people and places, drive business growth, support talent acquisition and retention, and foster diversity and inclusion. Topia’s centralized task management, automated workflows, built in mobility calculations, data analytics and accurate cost estimates and reporting allow companies to make decisions more confidently and achieve greater efficiency and compliance.
