Bristol congratulates Martin Foxwell on earning a Meritorious Service Award from Worldwide ERC®, the workforce mobility association. Martin was among several industry leaders honored at WERC’s 2020 Global Workforce Symposium during opening week on Thursday, October 29th. In addition all award recipients are featured in the October 2020 issue of WERC's Mobility magazine.
Martin earned the award for his many years of sustained contributions to our industry. Martin is a well-known figure at national, international and regional industry events, providing thought leadership through speaking engagements, topical presentations and moderating panel discussions while also having served on the WERC’s Global Symposium planning committee.
Martin’s formal ERC service record dates back to October 11, 2001. He draws a parallel between that experience and now: “It was an honor to present in Oct 2001. Exactly one month following the traumatic events of 9/11 it was the first time many of us had re-boarded an airplane. We had perhaps one-third the usual turnout as businesses were still getting back on their feet, our workforce under severe travel and budgetary restrictions let alone that we were all still adjusting emotionally. But what I remember most was the spirit of resilience, common purpose and determination that pervaded the gathering. While we face a very different kind of trauma in 2020, I perceive the same optimistic spirit of overcoming challenge and embracing change; that we are transforming this industry yet again, that we are ever-evolving and nothing can stop us. I am proud to share in this spirit. I believe it is more important than ever that we lead with our hearts and minds, participate in industry discussions, collaborate and support each other to form the solutions that will carry us forward.”
Continuing this path, Martin will next be seen on the WERC stage introducing the session “Global Compensation Reporting and Compliance 2020: Are You on Track for Year End?” on the closing day of the annual conference on November 20th. (Register here. https://www.worldwideerc.org/gws-2020
