The Society for Human Resources (SHRM) Conference and Expo usually is so expansive that it resembles a good-sized town more than a typical HR meeting. While COVID and travel restrictions limited the crowd this time, they didn’t diminish the quality of our conversations with HR professionals. We spoke with attendees representing a diverse array of companies, industries, products, services and locations. What was on their minds? Read More

When you select a service provider, in any industry, not just in global mobility, you’re also buying a culture. And cultural compatibility can be a critical part of a successful business relationship. While culture is usually a longstanding part of a company’s identity, it can be tested and changed by dramatic outside events—like a global pandemic.
Beyond health considerations, the pandemic upended most companies’ day-to-day operations, reducing the office-based workforce by 90% by some estimates. Organizations with office-based cultures and little experience with a dispersed workforce had to figure out the nuts and bolts of universal remote work: laptops, phones, videoconferencing technology, home office setups and protocols, security considerations, tech support and much more.

As a community of employee-owners and a people-centric business, we have been paying close attention to the growing spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our paramount concern is always the health, safety and well-being of our employee owners, clients, relocating employees, and business partners.
We have been heeding the advice of Federal, state and local authorities, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), all of which are advising that people practice preventative measures, including hand washing, the use of hand sanitizer and social distancing as much as possible.

TRC Global Mobility, Inc. (TRC) is pleased to announce that Hrvoje Crnecki, CRP, has joined the company as Director, Global Business Development. Hrvoje (pronounced “Hervoy”) has been in the industry for more than 12 years, holding a variety of roles at Paragon Global Resources, Cartus, Crown World Mobility, Mercer, Mondelez International and Kimberly-Clark.
Hrvoje has an especially personal knowledge of the relocation process. He has already experienced six interstate relocations within the U.S., receiving support ranging from a lump sum to a full relocation package.
More dramatically, Hrvoje experienced his first big move at the age of ten, after his native Yugoslavia erupted into war. As Hrvoje says, this was not a traditional corporate relocation but rather a compelled move with “limited” benefits! Hrvoje, along with his brother and mother, arrived in the U.S. with only a few Yugoslavian coins in their pockets and experienced all the challenges associated with moving to a foreign land, from culture to language to geography. When he was in college, Hrvoje attended a relocation job fair and that sparked his interest in the mobility industry. Read More

Recently I had the privilege to attend the 14th annual Pennsylvania Conference for Women in Philadelphia. The Conference is self-defined as, “A non-profit, non-partisan, one-day professional and personal development event for women that features dozens of renowned speakers sharing inspirational stories and leading seminars on the issues that matter most to women.” The approximately 12,000 attendees were mostly women, but I was encouraged to see quite a few men as well. As it turned out, the messages at the conference resonated with everyone, regardless of gender. I think they are particularly germane for our employee mobility industry and its female majority.
Worldwide ERC just issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to allow a partial travel ban to take effect.
Arlington, VA— On June 26, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an unsigned order to allow the implementation of parts of an executive order signed by President Trump to temporarily suspend foreign nationals from six countries from entering the U.S. Based on the facts of the case, the Court formed a distinction between nationals who have “a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States” and all other foreign nationals. The Court upheld the suspension of the ban for foreign nationals who have such a relationship, including individuals employed by a company in the U.S. Read More
You may have heard that TRC Global Mobility recently became an employee-owned company. What, exactly, does that mean if you are a TRC client or prospective client?
Employee ownership empowers employees. By giving employees the autonomy and flexibility to make judgement calls based on the customer’s needs, we streamline processes and increase customer satisfaction. Our employee-owners know that their actions affect their customers, and ultimately, the success of our company, and they take ownership of their decisions. In short, your success is their success.

TRC Global Solutions is now TRC Global Mobility! We selected our new name to emphasize our mission and exclusive focus on U.S. and Global Relocation services.
“TRC Global Solutions suggested a more fragmented human resources services focus; a direction some of our competitors have taken but one we have consciously avoided,” said Sean Lickver, CRP, GMS, Executive Vice President. “It did not convey what TRC does and what we are all about to best advantage. TRC Global Mobility more accurately captures our mission and our exclusive focus on employee relocation and global assignment management. We chose to retain the “TRC” part of our brand, a tribute to our founding as The Relocation Center in 1987.”
