Worldwide ERC® and the over 5,400 workforce mobility and relocation professionals it represents today applauded the swearing in of U.S. President Joseph R. Biden and U.S. Vice President Kamala D. Harris.
In a press statement to the new administration, Worldwide ERC® Chairman Andrew Walker and President and CEO Lynn Shotwell expressed our members’ eagerness to work alongside the President and Vice President in efforts to find policy solutions that benefit the workforce mobility industry. This includes on such critical issues as economic stimulus and tax relief, immigration reform, real estate and mortgage policies, and compliance.
“We welcome the opportunity to be a resource to the Administration on the public policies that will define where work is going,” said Walker.
“If a public policy involves the recruiting, hiring, deploying, transferring and/or relocating of domestic or global talent, then our members will have an informed perspective to help President Biden and his Administration figure out how best to promote a mobile workforce,” added Shotwell.
