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.
- 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.
