Synergy sweeps both the Americas and EMEA 2021 FEM Corporate Housing Provider of the Year awards

London, UK, November 9, 2021 — Synergy Global Housing (Synergy), a global leader in serviced accommodation programme management, earned the corporate housing sector’s top recognition at the annual Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) EMMA awards, winning 2021 Corporate Housing Provider of the Year, EMEA. 

EMEA Business Development Managers, Emma Horton (L) and Jessica Land (R).

“Taking home an FEM EMMA is always a goal every year, but to win two in the same year is just incredibly humbling”, said Stephen Hanton, President International. “Synergy leadership is very proud of the level of care and emphasis our global teams place on delivering an exceptional guest and buyer experience”.

Awarded FEM’s 2021 Corporate Housing Provider of the Year for the Americas’ region in late June, this most recent recognition from FEM marks the sixth “Corporate Housing Provider/Business of the Year” award Synergy has received in the last two years from the sector’s most recognised awarding bodies (FEMCHPAASAP, and Relocate Magazine.)

“Over the last 24 months, we’ve invested in our brand, people and technology to ensure Synergy is the extended-stay provider of choice for multinational corporations, and these awards continue to affirm we are on the right track”, said Hanton.

FEM shared this about Synergy’s win:    

“Synergy Global Housing’s reaction strategy to the pandemic has a long-term vision focusing on flexibility, the health of its clients and employees and investment in technology and processes beyond housing’s regular needs”.
