Brookfield Global Relocation Services proudly announces that its Intercultural Group celebrates its 50 year anniversary as a premier intercultural training organization. Our intercultural training experts help our clients develop the intercultural competencies their employees need to effectively communicate, interact and work across cultures.

Brookfield Global Relocation Services’ Intercultural Group marks its 50th anniversary with experience training clients to live and work in over 120 countries and a global network of over 250 active trainers. Originally founded as CRE in 1963, the company operated as the largest intercultural service contractor to the American Peace Corps and the US Navy. During the 1980s, the organization expanded its focus to the global business environment and has been training employees of Fortune 500 companies ever since.

“Moving to a foreign location can be a stressful process,” said Scott Sullivan, executive vice president, Brookfield Global Relocation Services. “Over the last 50 years the Intercultural Group has pioneered the right combination of assessment, training and coaching to maximize the success for globally mobile employees and their families. Our proprietary intercultural training prepares a transferring employee and their family by providing them with the awareness, knowledge and skills needed to adapt to living and working in a new location.
