CORT, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, is celebrating the 15-year anniversary milestone of the CORT Global Network at The Worldwide ERC® Global Workforce Symposium on Oct. 7-9 in Boston. The workforce mobility association is a group of professionals who oversee, manage, or support U.S. domestic and international employee transfer.
Attendees are encouraged to stop by CORT’s booth (#313) during the conference to learn more about the CORT Global Network, and the services it provides for national and multi-national companies that are relocating or posting employees on assignment from one international location to another. As the Network continues to evolve, the biggest growth opportunities will be in serving the banking and finance industry, oil and mineral industry as well as biotech and pharmaceuticals in The Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia/Pacific Regions.
“The CORT Global Network has experienced consistent growth since its inception in 2001. Individuals and corporate clients are seeking a more cost-containing approach for housing and providing furnishings for their employees. Assignments are trending more toward shorter term, i.e., 6, 12, 24 months in duration, and therefore our global business has expanded to provide the right solutions for our clients,” said Kenneth S Barron, managing director, CORT Global Network. “Today we are providing service in 80 countries and we continue to see expansion opportunities to build out the network by offering improved quality and greater selection, as well as providing more choices in our service lines to exceed our client’s expectations.”
With international travel and foreign business assignments now the norm, the world has become much smaller over the last few decades. Businesses are more accustomed to different cultures and more sophisticated in localizing their employees in foreign countries. Furniture rental offers the perfect solution for these businesses looking to save money while housing their employees in new destination locations. Whether an assignee is looking for a lifestyle and design consistent to the local culture or the more western lifestyle approach, the CORT Global Network continues to provide housing solutions for tens of thousands of global clients each year.
The CORT Global Network is a premier international resource for relocation services providing services to more than 80 countries around the world.
