suggested answer
Suggested answer

A comparison of ERS and Worldwide Relocation (WR)

Introduction

The aim of this report is to assess which of the two companies, ERS or WR, would be the most suitable for the relocation of Fenway employees and their families from Seattle to Dublin.

slide17
Findings

Both ERS and WR offer an accommodation and school search services. Both companies can organise visas and work permits. In addition to these basic services, ERS also offers removal and shipping assistance whereas WR offers an integration program and assistance with partner employment. The latter is a key requirement for Fenway.

slide18
Conclusion

It was concluded that both companies fulfill Fenway’s needs to some extend, but neither meets all its needs.

Recommendation

We would recommend that Wr be choosen to facilitate the relocation process as its services match Fenway’s requirements more closely than ERS’ do.
