The 2020 Annual Report covers the Worldwide ERC® Fiscal Year (FY) from April 2019 – March 2020 and is based upon statements audited
by accounting and advisory firm RSM. It predates my onboarding in March of 2020, and it predates the onset of the global COVID-19 health crisis. In other words, it is a report from another time that, in fact, may feel like another world.
When I stepped into my role as CEO of Worldwide ERC, I assumed responsibility for an association in transition, and began working with a Board of Directors that was united in its focus on the future. The workforce mobility industry is a dynamic one, constantly adapting to change and navigating transformation, and the Board was and remains a true representation of that spirit. We set to work to take what FY 2020 had given us – and then what the year 2020 gave us with COVID-19 – to ensure Worldwide ERC® remains a true representation of our members’ spirit as well.
FY 2020 sets the context for where we are going in FY 2021 and beyond. While I may not be able to speak to all Worldwide ERC® accomplished in the time that predates me, I can say with certainty that since March 2020, we have done what mobility professionals do every day: help our stakeholders navigate the most stressful and exciting times in their careers. We have delivered:
Having come through the most challenging of times for Worldwide ERC and, indeed, our entire industry, we are excited about the future and where we are all going together. With that, we will be able to report out more fully on the past year in our 2021 Annual Report. In the meantime, I deliver to you the world we knew in FY 2020 and a promise that like you, Worldwide ERC® is where work is going, and we will go there together.
