Advocating as ONE Industry for Public Policies that Support Global Mobility
Worldwide ERC® calls on governments to be agile and attentive to support work from anywhere
As the world changes around you, you must constantly adapt your business practices to keep up and stay ahead, and you need public policies to support what you do. That’s where Worldwide ERC® comes in – advocating with ONE voice for our industry.
So much that impacts global mobility is still up in the air in Washington, DC. Congress is debating a $3.5 trillion budget package that would have far-reaching implications for business. Immigration provisions were ruled out of bounds for this deal, which increases the urgency for Congress to come up with a legislative fix for the DACA program and other immigration-related issues.
Meanwhile, this fiscal year ends on September 30, and we expect employment-based green cards to go unused again. And the new fiscal year that starts on October 1 will kick off another H-1B visa cycle.
Earlier this year, we released our Principles for Public Policy Reform, calling on governments around the world to enact public policies that support work anywhere, especially with the rise in remote work; that are agile to give employers the flexibility they need to get business done in this rapidly changing world; and that are attentive to the needs of employers and workers alike.
We’ve used this anywhere-agile-attentive public policy framework to advocate on your behalf in Washington, DC, and around the globe, joining forces with the Canadian Employee Relocation Council and the European Relocation Association, and partnering with organizations like the International Organization of Employers to make your voice heard on a global scale.
We will continue our advocacy as ONE industry at Global Workforce Symposium (GWS) 202ONE, where you will have a chance to hear directly from public policy experts. We will also conduct our first-ever Virtual Hill Day, where Worldwide ERC® members will learn best practices for being effective advocates and then have a chance to put them into use.
You make a difference in your world every day, and when we come together with ONE voice to advocate for our industry, there is no end to what we can do.
