Erika Grummitt - TEMI Industry Development Taskforce

Erika Grummitt
Global Remuneration, Mobility & Benefits / TEMI Industry Development Taskforce Member

Erika has spent the past 13 years working in consultancy and in-house roles across HR, Global Mobility and Remuneration & Benefits.  Over this time she has seen enormous change in the Talent and Mobility landscape and is excited that this is just the beginning.

With the advances in technology, legislation changes and increased scrutiny over cost, Erika believes that requirements have shifted from Global Workforce Management practitioners who are highly transactional, to those who are able to think strategically and contribute to the future success of an organisation, as opposed to providing solutions for its current state.

Having also lived the expat experience herself, she is passionate about the human aspect of Global Workforce Management and making the employee experience a positive one. As a result, Erika believes that there is no better time for the industry’s ‘seasoned professionals’ and ‘rookies’ to come together to define the future of our profession and showcase the amazing work being done and is excited to join the Industry Taskforce and be given the opportunity to collaborate with other passionate industry experts to support TEMI’s objectives.

After more than 25 years working in the Australian migration world, Amanda has seen Politicians and Ministers think, change, procrastinate, do nothing and then do lots all at the same time. Discussing, guiding and assisting HR staff mange and understand the visa world is a part of her job that she really does enjoy.

Rebecca Applewhite

Rebecca Applewhite
Solutions Consultant, Topia

Rebecca’s career in global mobility started in an amateur way – travelling and working in Eastern Europe and Japan in her twenties. Happily, those wandering years led indirectly to her first role with the Japanese Human Capital team in Deloitte London, looking after employers with expatriates in London.  Once she grasped the core expatriate tax concepts, she was able to branch out into policy design and process mapping.

After her move to Deloitte Melbourne, an innocent customer query (“Is there some kind of process map to help me manage these moves?”) hooked her on the possibilities of using workflow automation and design thinking to transform global mobility. Rebecca is now in her dream job at Topia, with a company that is visionary and passionate about mobility technology, and she gets to demonstrate and discover new ways of thinking about mobility every day!

Contact Rebecca to chat about her career choice.
