The Benefits of Hiring Skilled Immigrants

When making the case for hiring and integrating skilled immigrants to senior leaders, you need to emphasize the benefits skilled immigrants bring to an organization.

Skilled immigrants:

  • comprise a significant and increasing proportion of the labour market. Employers should be immigrant-ready or risk losing top talent to competitors.
  • increase understanding of and access to local markets that are increasingly diverse and multicultural.
  • increase understanding of and access to international markets for operations or sales opportunities.
  • bring new ideas and perspectives that enhance innovation.
  • bring enthusiasm, a strong work ethic and new perspectives to business problems.
