Opinions about HRN
HRN features on a significant number of movers websites where it is referenced as an organisation with “a new name but proven track record.” Strong family values and the cooperative global approach come through every time.
The general consensus seems to be that moving with a relocation business that is part of the HRN gives a customer access to the benefits of the entire network. The point is made that members must stick to a global service level agreement and the result of this is consistency – “while the customs and culture may vary by country the high quality of service you can expect will not. Worldwide – the same procedures, service and high quality.”
In addition, a number of those who quote the membership on their websites focus on the size of the network and it being one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Harmony is a global network of locally owned relocation companies, upholding strong family values through generations of heritage.
Harmony combines the best of local heritages with a global scale, going the extra mile and delivering on our promises. We truly take the importance of people and local to heart.
The network provides a broad range of pre-assignment, transportation and destination services to help guide private individuals or HR executives and assignees throughout their journey, from beginning to end.
