DelSuites Champions Global Mobility at the CERC Conference 2023

September 7, 2023

Are you a business looking to relocate employees? Are you an employee needing a comfortable and cost-effective housing solution for your next move? DelSuites is here to help. 

We are proud to announce our participation in the 2023 Canadian Employee Relocation Council (CERC) Conference, which will be examining global mobility solutions that provide comfort and convenience for businesses and their personnel. 

Global mobility refers to the process of relocating people from one location to another for work purposes. This includes both domestic relocations within Canada as well as international moves across borders. 

The 2023 CERC Conference will explore how organizations can overcome the challenge of providing their employees with international housing solutions that meet both business and lifestyle needs. 

We’ll examine how global mobility is essential for businesses today and how our DelSuites solutions provide cost-effective and comfortable relocation options for your personnel. 

What is the CERC?

The Canadian Employee Relocation Council is a membership organization dedicated to providing leadership and assistance to members to effectively serve relocated workers and families, both domestically and internationally. 

The organization has over 500 members from across Canada, the United States and beyond. CERC helps its members increase their expertise in workforce mobility by offering programs, publications and services and a forum for corporations and service organizations to communicate more efficiently. 

This contributes greatly to Canada’s economy, with an estimated $2.5 billion yearly contribution! CERC also represents some of the top employers in Canada – including 828,000 people employed by 4 of the top 5 Canadian banks, 6 of the top 7 energy companies, and more. 

As a result, CERC members have an asset value totalling over $6.1 trillion! With all this in mind, it’s no wonder why participating in the 2023 CERC Conference is so beneficial for those looking to take their career to new heights. 

Introduction to the 2023 CERC Conference

As the global mobility industry evolves, CERC’s 2023 conference guides us towards a more proactive and strategic approach.  The event aims to help organizations view global mobility as an essential tool for achieving business objectives rather than merely relocating employees worldwide on a cut-and-paste basis. 

At the conference, industry experts, including DelSuites, will discuss how talent management, skills development, and diversity and inclusion can be successfully implemented into corporate strategies. 

If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve, the CERC conference is a one-stop shop for staying up to date on the latest industry trends and networking with peers from across North America and beyond. 

Reasons for the Need to Advocate Change in Global Mobility

Navigating the complexities of global mobility can seem overwhelming. The 2023 CERC conference advocates for change to make it easier for organizations and their employees to relocate. 

Most organizations report that the lack of available and affordable housing has at least a moderate impact on their domestic and international programs, with 50 percent reporting a significant impact on their programs. 

Other difficulties include: 

  • High costs associated with relocating personnel, such as travel expenses, shipping goods overseas, etc.
  • Complex legal regulations that vary from country to country
  • Difficulty in finding suitable housing in a new city or country
  • Language barriers and cultural differences that can be difficult to navigate 

These challenges can potentially “stall” businesses from achieving their goals, making it difficult for them to relocate personnel across borders. 

The Value of CERC Membership in Enhancing Relocation

As a member of the Canadian Employee Relocation Council, you can gain access to powerful tools and processes that will help your business leverage employee mobility in new and innovative ways. 

Their vision works to be the voice of change for this industry, while their mission is focused on advancing global mobility through partnerships, research, education and government relations. 

The benefits of being a CERC member are: 

  • Government relations: Staying informed about current regulations and laws related to employee relocation in Canada. 
  • Knowledge: Connecting with experts from all over the world who share their insights into best practices within employee relocation. 
  • Education: Learning from the experiences of others in the industry through lectures, workshops and conferences. 
  • Affinity programs such as TerningPoint: Offer protection for destination service providers with their truly international professional liability insurance program that is designed to meet unique needs. 

With CERC, you can be sure that your business has access to the latest information related to employee relocation and benefits from a supportive network of experts who are passionate about refining these processes.
