14 Mobility | January 2017 Worldwide ERC® Front Page AROUND THE WORLDWIDE ERC ® U.K.-BASED WORKERS LOOKING FOR JOBS IN IRELAND AFTER BREXIT Recruitment site Indeed reports a 20 percent rise in searches for work in Ireland in the 100 days since the referendum result—nearly three times the average increase for the rest of the European Union. Their findings show the post-Brexit rise in people seeking jobs outside the U.K. is both sustained and increasing. One of the consequences of the Brexit vote has been to make Ireland a more popular destination for jobseekers located in other EU countries, says Indeed, and reports that the job segments searched most often are finance, software engineering, marketing, IT, engineering, and hos - pitality. In addition to increases in job searches in Ireland, there were upsurges in British searches for jobs in Australia (13 percent), Canada (10 percent), and Germany (9 percent). CARTUS NAMES MASTERS CUP WINNERS Cartus Corporation hosted its 16th annual Global Network Conference in October to celebrate service excellence among its supply chain partners. Cartus awarded Elite Moving Systems of London and LARM of Hollywood, Florida, with the Masters Cup for overall excellence—the highest honors within the Cartus Global Network. Elite Moving Systems was named the top supplier in the category of All Things Moving. LARM was named the top supplier in the category of Home-Related Services. "As a regular practice, our Global Network mem - bers pull out all of the stops to provide exceptional results to our clients," says Kevin Kelleher, president and CEO of Cartus. "This year, however, both of these companies went above and beyond these already high standards, providing superior results through exemplary dedication, performance, and service. It's fitting that they are the recipients of this award, par - ticularly because the theme our conference this year was all about exceeding customer expectations." The conference was held in Washington, D.C., with 390 members of the Cartus Global Network, representing 180 companies from 37 countries, attending the event in recognition of the achieve - ments of network members in serving Cartus' clients and customers worldwide. Also honored at the ceremony were those sup- pliers who have consistently delivered exceptional service to Cartus' customers, as well as those who invested in innovations that improved service. Award winners were named at the platinum, gold, and silver levels in the categories of "Commitment to Excellence" and "Innovation." Each year at this event, Cartus also presents Global Citizenship Awards to companies from among its supplier network for their commitment to making an impact on the health, welfare, and safety of others, and/or for improving a commu - nity's quality of life on a national or international basis. The 2016 Global Citizenship winners were School Choice International of White Plains, New York; Relo Japan of Tokyo; and Arpin Group of West Warwick, Rhode Island. Cartus donated $500, $1,000, and $2,500, respectively, to the organiza - tions' charitable funds.
