Connecting as ONE Industry to Find Talent

Worldwide ERC® has always been about putting talent to work where it is needed. It is uniquely positioned to match mobility professionals to professional opportunities.

Mobility leaders tell me their greatest challenge is finding qualified talent. Despite the disappointing August job numbers, demand in mobility remains strong. Every day we see more opportunities posted in our career center – in fact, we had more than 75 posted in just a five-day period – and my LinkedIn post on the topic was one of my most read.

The competition for talent hits close to home and far afield. With the number of job openings exceeding the number of those actively seeking employment, the mobility supply chain struggles to meet the rising demand of economic recovery. Challenges such as this impact everyone in the industry and would be intractable were we to face them alone – but we are not. Together – connecting as ONE industry – we can find solutions. That is the strength of this diverse professional community.

Only Worldwide ERC brings global mobility and relocation professionals together as ONE industry to help us tackle the biggest issues of our time. We are bringing you together for GWS 202ONE in October in Chicago, where we will offer learning sessions and networking opportunities that are a continuation of the resources we have developed through articles this summer and our July webinar on how to navigate the search for qualified talent.

I also hear from long-time professionals in the mobility industry who are unable to find their next job. We’ve upgraded our GMS-T designation and added badges to help you demonstrate your knowledge and set yourself apart from the competition.

We’ve also brought on two new team members – Stephanie Aker and Tracy Toth – to connect mobility companies and professionals to each other and to the resources Worldwide ERC provides. They bring a wealth of industry expertise and experience to the team. Stephanie and Tracy will both be in Chicago at GWS 202ONE, and I can’t wait to introduce you to them.

Whether you’re struggling to locate talent for open positions or having a hard time finding your own next opportunity, we are here as ONE industry to help. See you in Chicago!
