“It’s so important to receive recognition among your peers for innovation and hard work and so I think the winners and all those on the shortlist should feel extremely proud. EMMAs entries are rigorously judged by a team of fiercely impartial, highly experienced, senior figures in the industry, who are drawn from a range of disciplines across the EMEA region and who give up their own free time to carry out a very thorough and demanding process. So, these awards carry tremendous kudos.”

The judges commented on International SOS’s winning entries: “International SOS has continued to support businesses in providing duty of care to employees and they have successfully delivered when it counted the most.”; “Clear strategy to continue to predict, and meet, current and future needs has put International SOS ahead of the game.”
