The EuRA Global Quality Seal is based on the ISO-9001 process management model which specifies the processes and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that reflect the very highest standards in relocation services.
By earning and maintaining the EuRA Global Quality Seal, IOR is committed to measuring and exceeding industry-leading standards for quality, responsiveness and client service, which we have done every year since 2014.
Consistently Exceptional Quality
The IOR Quality System (the IQ System), is based on continuous improvement methodology. Through the IQ System, IOR focuses on making incremental improvements on an on-going basis to our processes. We use the IQ System to guide our process, measure our performance and generate ideas for doing even better. Our goal is to continuously evaluate ways to improve customer satisfaction and quality, increase efficiency, reduce costs and consistently exceed our own high standards.
Best-in-class quality doesn’t happen by accident… we have a proven system for achieving it
All evaluation results are monitored and compared with our established KPI targets. If any areas are not consistently exceeding our targets, we determine the root cause and make changes to improve our processes.
IOR’s management team regularly reviews the KPI data to identify trends and proactively implement actions to ensure improvements in service delivery. This enables IOR to move from corrective to preventive actions.
We establish clearly defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for every aspect of the relocation service delivery. We also partner with our clients to incorporate, measure and exceed their KPIs.
Client and assignee feedback is critical to improving our quality, and we incorporate an evaluation process for every program. We also solicit client feedback via our Annual Client Survey.

We know that companies are focused on getting a return on their investment, and IOR delivers. In 2019, we achieved rental and cost savings that generated a return on investment of more than 80% for our clients. That means that over the course of a two-year assignment, our programs pay for themselves. From concessions on rent to savings on parking and other amenities, IOR Destination Consultants are laser-focused on providing cost savings to each employee they support.
IOR = ROI
Our Destination Services pay for themselves. IOR is leading the industry in generating and documenting rental and cost savings for our clients. After every Destination Services program, our Consultants detail rental and other cost savings they achieved for the relocating employee. In 2018, we generated a Return on Investment of 76% for our Destination Services clients (ROI = savings / program cost).
