Daniel Werder, Learnlight’s Head of Global Mobility Partnerships, Michael Handforth, Learnlight’s Head of Operations and Louis Lima, Head of Skills Performance at Learnlight took receipt of the Global Supplier of the Year award on behalf of Learnlight. During the presentation the SIRVA team shared the following reflection on what makes Learnlight a unique partner:

global supplier of the year

 ‘[Learnlight] helps us see new opportunities to service our clients better.

Learnlight guides thought but always listens to the client and defers to what the client is asking for. They probe and ask the deeper questions to really understand the needs of the client and their employees. Their focus is on developing a better employee, contributing to the SIRVA client’s own success.

‘[Learnlight] is always positive, even when something is not successful. They truly abide by the idea that this is a journey we go on together and can’t be measured by sprints.

Learnlight looks out for SIRVA’s best needs and honors the relationship above all’.

This is not the first time that Learnlight’s Global Mobility services have been recognized, last year Learnlight was shortlisted for two awards at the 2018 Expatriate Management and Mobility Awards. Learnlight looks forward to many more years of collaboration with SIRVA and its other Global Mobility partners.
