ECA International provides data on cost of living,[1] salary, accommodation, tax, labour law, benefits and quality of life[2] for international assignees in about 400 locations worldwide. Clients can subscribe to services including country reports and allowance calculators, or they can request ad-hoc consultancy projects including global mobility policy design and review.[3]

The company runs surveys throughout the year to enable clients to benchmark their management policy for expatriate employees.[4] It also runs regular IHR (International Human Resurouces) events and trainings[5] including its International HR Practitioner course.[6]


ECA International was founded by a group of international companies in 1971, in order to simplify the exchange of information for the management of expatriates. ECA, which stands for Employment Conditions Abroad, has offices in London, New York City, Sydney and Hong Kong.[7]
