EuRA members guide the organization by their values, which are compassion, integrity, teamwork, sustainability, diversity, and non-profit.
They have their very own “[…] accreditation programme for relocation providers”, which also happens to be the first one of its kind in the world! It’s called Global Quality Seal Plus. They claim that those that are EGQS+ certified are known for their high-level skills in relocation matters. So you could really consider getting it if you want to improve your knowledge and have the certification to back it up.
If you like what this organization stands for, don’t hesitate in becoming a member. There are three different membership types to choose from.
