Mobility - July 2021 - 22

PUBLIC POLICY
internationally that some people experienced
pre-COVID. What you saw before was that the
industry focused on people in its facilities to
work with. Now it's just as easy for someone in
Asia or South America to speak to someone in
the U.S. as it is to speak to someone in the next
room. That will boost international collaboration,
and that will be positive for our industry.

Mobility: What is the role of the Global
Forum in carrying out the public policy principles
of reform adopted by Worldwide ERC®
earlier this year?
I think what we mainly want to do is create
awareness of the differences in policies from
country to country and leverage the expertise of
our members to help influence policy in directions
that are more favorable for our industry.
Most policies have been put in place to serve the
particular needs of the jurisdiction that formulated
them, so we have seen a wide range of
responses to the same issues. One country might
open its borders, another country might not, and
the country that doesn't open its borders might
be losing out on the skills that they might need.
And the country that opens up has an entirely
different set of problems.
I think what might be good is to have
more of an awareness of learning what the
consequences are of certain policies. One of
the things our industry can do is present the
evidence that a different policy might work
better or might work well, to create a broader
view with those who need to make the decisions
about what's best for a certain country.
The role of our forum is to create a platform
for people to share what they see happening
in their locations and educate others about the
success stories, and also the failures of particular
policies, in order to come to a next step in
how countries can operate to be economically
more successful as a result of mobility.
In addition to our principles for reform, we
are also excited about the recent joint declaration
from Worldwide ERC®
, the Canadian

Employee Relocation Council, and the
European Relocation Association. As associations
that represent the professionals who
deploy talent, this first-ever declaration enables
us together to deliver solutions for modernizing
relocation and mobility policies and practices, in
order to drive economic recovery and meet the
new workforce realities of a post-COVID world.
Mobility: How is the work of the Global
Forum assisting Worldwide ERC®
members?
Something I am trying to encourage more is the
sharing of information. I'd like to see more people
take a more active role, because everybody has an
opinion, everybody sees something around them.
I think with the more than 5,400 members we
have, if we can all share our thinking, that's a huge
amount of collective wisdom we have.
I think there's a little bit of hesitation about
participating on the part of some of our members.
There are a lot of people who have a lot of
interesting things to say but are quiet because
they think that what they have to say is not that
interesting, and that's too bad. Everybody has
something to contribute.
Especially with the website of Worldwide
, it becomes a lot easier to share informaERC®
tion,
because in the past we've mainly had to
do that in face-to-face meetings that were held
twice a year. Now we have a platform where
we can easily exchange ideas, information, and
suggestions, in our Community and in particular
the Government Affairs Global Forum. One of
the things I also would like to do is encourage
people to read those contributions, add their
own, and join the Community conversation.
