The U.S. government has committed to welcoming hundreds of thousands of people displaced by major refugee crises, including 95,000 at-risk Afghans who worked alongside the U.S military and 100,000 Ukrainians displaced by Russia’s recent military invasion. These developments represent an enormous opportunity for the American business community to help refugees to integrate into the U.S. workforce.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Tent Partnership for Refugees hosted a discussion to share how U.S. companies can navigate the complexities of developing a successful refugee hiring initiative. The briefing covered:
- The refugee context in the U.S.
- Hilton’s experience recruiting and integrating refugee talent at its hotels throughout the country, and Greenberg Traurig’s perspective advising their corporate clients on legal matters related to refugee integration.
- How Tent can help companies effectively recruit and integrate refugees into their workforces.
