  • The Happiness Challenge in the New World of Work

    This month, the world celebrated International Day of Happiness, established in 2011 by the United Nations as it called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples.” Over the past year, mental health and well-being has been put to the ultimate test due to the unprecedented global health crisis of COVID-19. Workplaces have sought to prioritize mental health initiatives like never before, putting employees first as the world of work navigated happiness in new and profound ways.
  • Worldwide ERC® Launches Research Report on Remote Work Policies

    Learn about Transformation of the Global Workforce: Remote Work, a new Worldwide ERC® study of insights from CHROs on where work is going after a transformational year.

    Topics discussed in the report, the new reality of remote work, work from home policies and how they are evolving, and discussion for Senior HR Leaders about work/life balance.
  • Antitrust/HR Issues

    Federal Antitrust laws prohibit agreements among employers not to recruit certain employees or not to compete on terms of compensation (Department of Justice/FTC Antitrust Guidance For Human Resource Professionals (https://www.justice.gov/atr/file/903511)

    In compliance with antitrust requirements, Worldwide ERC® publishes surveys reporting composite data that enable HR professionals to learn the types of benefits employers offer to transferees and the range of costs that employers incur when transferring employees to new locations. These surveys promote competition by helping employers to benchmark their practices. 

    When visiting your Worldwide ERC® Community, you can ask general questions such as whether Community members provide certain types of benefits to transferees, whether they pay a sliding scale of benefits based on factors such as the transferees salary or transfer location, etc. 

    You cannot ask specific questions such as how much is the total dollar value that a Community member will currently pay to a transferee moving from X to Y or how much is the maximum commission that a Community member will pay to a real estate broker.

    The government antitrust enforcers believe that general information provided by a trade association usually promotes competition but direct one on one communications between employers involving specific details of how much an employer is currently paying for salaries or types of benefits is anti-competitive and could violate the Antitrust laws.
