The Federation of International Employers / La Federación de Empresarios Internacionales (formerly The Federation of European Employers) was established in 1989 with the support of the European Commission. Today it operates independently and is the leading organisation for multinational employers and is also known as FedEE Global. The Federation of International Employers was established in 1988 with financial support from the European Commission. Today it operates independently as the leading global organisation for multinational employers and is also known as FedEE Global.
The Federation's principal aims are to assist companies to achieve legal compliance, operate more effectively at an international level, improve transnational HR capabilities, network with other international executives, develop practical/equitable pay structures, evaluate new employment methods and trends, monitor employee participation and trade union activities and embrace workforce diversity.
In 1988, the organisation was founded as the Federation of European Employers by current Secretary-General Robin E.J Chater in order to assist human resource professionals operating in Europe.
The head office was originally located in London, UK - but with its relaunch in 2014 as a global organization the organization changed its operational headquarters to Bristol, UK and Hong Kong. As a further development in 2014, the Federation became the principal sponsor of a new business networking community called butN. The butN system allows business travelers to link up and meet face-to-face.
