If you’re a Human Resources or global mobility worker, you probably know of the challenges of the relocation industry. A lot of them are related to the economy of the companies and clients, and the cultural shock of moving away. But there are also many benefits.
If you want to be a better professional, you have to keep learning about those challenges and benefits. That’s the only way you’ll become better at your work, and will help improve the industry. Which, by the way, is always evolving, so you have to be updating your knowledge all the time. To help you achieve that, you are invited to the EuRA Global Conference in Costa Rica: “Stronger Together; The Power of Collaboration”. Where you’ll discuss the relocation business and your ideas with fellow co-workers, and will learn from the best.
The European Relocation Association (EuRA) is a non-profit organization that educates about the relocation and global mobility industry. They do that by hosting different relocation events and conferences. As well as by publishing news about what’s going on in the industry and in the world. Because at the end of the day, the global mobility business is affected by what happens in the world.
They also promote relocation services because they know that relocating an employee costs a lot of money to a company. They are also aware of the cultural challenges that people suffer when they are relocated. And they believe they can help with that.
Some of their goals are to “promote the highest levels of professionalism and service” and “track industry trends and disseminate industry information”. As well as “create a professional framework within which the relocation industry can grow and develop”. As you can see, they’re really interested in providing a great service in helping you and the industry in general.
Since they like to promote education around the mobility business, they offer a training program: The Managing International Mobility Study Programme (MIM Training).
It aims to train the team of EuRA’s member companies so they become better at their work. There are three “milestones” you have to achieve during this program.
They also offer a “EuRA Global Quality Seal Plus”, which is an accreditation for relocation providers. And it shows the high-level skills of the professionals that have this accreditation. This program is directed toward EuRA members and has also been created by EuRA members.

Language Training Makes You a Better Relocation Professional
As a Human Resources and relocation professional, you’re in constant search for tools that help you at work. One of those important tools is language training. Yes, you read that right. Knowing another language will help you communicate better with international partners and clients. You’ll be able to speak in their mother tongue or speak in a popular language so more people can understand you. And that will make them feel more comfortable with you and your work. They’ll notice how much you care.
So, if you want your company to grow for the better, invest in your employees’ language education. It’s a win-win. A great choice is Fluency Corp’s corporate language training. Every program is customized to the job. And we’ll make sure you and your team learn useful vocabulary for the office. We’ll also help you be fluent in any language that you choose.
