Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from global authorities, collaborate on solutions, and learn about new opportunities. Furthermore, sessions and seminars will review global information and facilitate networking across a vibrant marketplace.

Registration rates vary according to ERC membership, although qualifying first-time corporate HR professionals may attend at no cost. Attendees may also select from a number of optional programming and training events, such as the Global Mobility Specialist Module 3.

The Worldwide ERC Global Workforce Symposium will take place on September 27 through September 29, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago in Illinois.

Under the leadership of Mark Olsen, Parsifal Corporation strives to develop quality products and services associated with auditing, billing, and relocation management. Parsifal Corporation is also the developer of MyReloWork, an advanced relocation management tool for employers and their transferring employees. The following tips may prove useful to employees preparing to undergo a job transfer that requires them to move.

1. Use employer supported resources. Many employers offer relocation services for employees undergoing a transfer, such as assistance with transportation expenses and housing searches. If your employer does not openly offer, you may try requesting them.

2. Plan ahead. A successful move involves planning ahead and making the right decisions for you and your family regarding neighborhood, travel distance to work, and similar considerations. Do research and become familiar with the area you will be moving to.

3. Keep your budget in mind. Develop a relocation budget that leaves leeway for unexpected costs and charges.

4. Factor in family needs. If your family unit includes a spouse or children, you will also need to help them adjust to the new environment. For instance, you may need to help a spouse find a new job or research the best schools for children.

5. Choose the right realtor. Make sure you choose an experienced real estate agent to list your home to receive a realistic estimate of your home’s worth and how long selling it might take. In addition, do similar research for a realtor in your new hometown.

6. Decide upon moving services. Determine what kind of moving services you will need and begin making arrangements. You may want to use an insured, reputable moving company for long-distance moves, particularly those with long-distance experience.

7. Stay organized. Keep important documents, contact information, and other essential items together for easy access. You might also want to keep a to-do list to help remind you what you have finished and what remains to do.

Parsifal Corporation Highlights Relocation Industry News

Under the leadership of Mark Olsen, Parsifal Corporation specializes in relocation procurement technology (RPT) and relocation auditing for household goods. Parsifal Corporation, with Mark Olsen serving as president and CEO, frequently offers relocation services to corporations, governments, and other parties.

Mark Olsen recently noted that on its website, Parsifal Corporation recently publicized updates related to the relocation industry, including news about Gateway Terminal India (GTI), Port of Nhava Sheva. The article notes that continued labor issues have caused the port’s terminal gates to remain closed in August, which has created an extreme level of congestion at the port. According to the article, the GTI port is close to Mumbai on India’s west coast, and it manages almost 50 percent of the nation’s maritime shipping. Until the labor strike is concluded, import container vessels will avoid the port, and export-loaded containers will continue to be delayed at the terminal.

Parsifal Corporation also highlighted the news that an $8 billion project to expand the Suez Canal in Egypt was recently completed ahead of schedule after just a year. Originally constructed more than 150 years ago, the Suez Canal underwent renovations that increased both the depth and width of the artificial waterway. The renovations could reduce travel time on the canal by seven hours, while also increasing the canal’s shipping capacity from 50 to almost 100 ships each day.
