About Worldwide ERC

Worldwide ERC was born in 1964 as the “Employee Relocation Real Estate Advisory Council” with only six members. Nonetheless, they still had a mission: to help the country and its businesses with what they needed to move their employees. They’ve grown so much since those days.

Besides a change of name, they also grew their members to over a thousand corporations and over nine thousand service industry members. Now, Worldwide ERC describes itself as “the premier trade association for talent management and global mobility knowledge”.

They have a “Three-year Strategic Plan” that consists of three main steps or characteristics that defines them. First, is “Engage”. It’s about inviting professionals from all around the world that work in the industry and share a love for global mobility and connecting them.

The second step is to “Inspire”. They want to inspire to improve mobility knowledge and professionalism through great technology, “best-practice modeling” and “respected branding”.

The third step is to “Educate”. This is all about giving the best information, content, events and courses to prepare the mobility community and make them better at their job.

One of the ways they’ll achieve their goals is by spreading the latest news about the industry through their website. Even better, they have an online Mobility Magazine with the best news, tips and interesting topics.

As if that weren’t enough, they also have a Mobility Minute Newsletter shared into your inbox on Fridays. Through this minute, you’ll read about the most important news in the mobility and relocation industry, so you’re always well informed.

Another way they help the mobility community and professionals is through Worldwide ERC’s learning portal. There, there are great webinars and courses to learn new things, explore other paths about the mobility business or just improve your current skills. To get the benefits of the learning portal, you can either be a member or get a premium subscription.

To become a member, you just have to choose the membership that better suits your profile. There’s the “Professional/Personal Membership”, the “Corporate Premier Membership” and different “Service Provider Memberships”.

All of which have different benefits, including access to an online directory and discounts for events. The best of all? You can renew your membership!
