On the 27th December, we passed our 6th EGQS audit. This makes us the longest continual holders of the seal in the UK.
The EuRA Global Quality Seal is the world’s first accreditation programme for relocation providers and is open to all Full, Associate and Worldwide EuRA Members.
In 1998, an association was born with the founding principle of raising the standards in the relocation industry; that association was EuRA. Over the past 20 years, EuRA has worked with its 500+ members, the HR community and the EU to develop strategies that would set the delivery of destination services by its members at the very highest level.
This was no mean undertaking as EuRA members come from all over the world and represent two vastly different business models; nationally based destination service suppliers and global relocation management companies. So how could an association representing the entire relocation industry draw these models together to provide a uniform set of quality ideals?
The first step was the implementation of a training qualification aimed at individual relocation professionals. In 2003 EuRA and its partners launched of the European Academy of Relocation Professionals (EARP) to develop and accredit training programmes in mobility.
