Online - Hiring refugees: Challenges and opportunities
@
Research has shown that refugees have lower turnover and higher retention rates. Yet, they still represent one of the most vulnerable groups of migrants in the labour market. How can we offer greater access to employment and socio-economic integration for displaced talent in today's digital economy?
This panel will explore the challenges faced by companies who have hired displaced talent and how they have overcome these. It will highlight the motivations and benefits of their decision to hire refugees for remote jobs. We know that when employers create a positive relationship with their first refugee employee, this opens the door for other displaced talent, so how can we facilitate this. This panel aims to provide best practice and recommendations for hiring displaced talent.
