RES Forum Accreditation

RES accreditation is the industry benchmark in taking HR and Global Mobility professionals beyond the basics of global mobility management and allowing them to demonstrate their understanding of mobility and HR concepts in practice.

The RES team send candidates a mobility case study and ask them to prepare a recorded PowerPoint (including audio) or a video presentation, which builds upon the knowledge acquired through the Learning Lab. The presentation is then sent to our qualified assessors, who are, without exception, current or previous heads of reward or global mobility.

The assessment will result in either pass or fail - with a pass rate of around 70%. Successful candidates will become ‘RES accredited class of 2018’ and will receive our logo and business card templates for use on their business cards and in their LinkedIn signature. They will also appear on our public ‘Hall of fame’, allowing employers and clients to see when you achieved accreditation.

Whether pass or fail, candidates will receive a feedback summary of their submission.
