ERM is a leading global provider of environmental, health, safety, risk, social consulting services and sustainability related services. They have more than 160 offices in over 40 countries and territories employing more than 5,000 people. Those employees work on projects around the world to help their clients understand and manage the sustainability challenges that the world is increasingly facing.

In September 2015, ERM raised its commitment to innovation by launching its first-ever global staff Innovation Tournament. IdeaScale technology was selected to help collect ideas from their employees around the world on innovative ways in which they saw the firm being able to improve their offerings to clients, using existing technology. It also supported increased engagement throughout the Tournament as ERM staff liked, commented on and shared photographs relating to the activity.
