CASE STUDY Management consulting and information technology (IT) firm ISF has served Florida-based businesses for more than 35 years. In its early years, the company specialized in providing software solutions to healthcare and logistical enterprises, but has since expanded to service seven state governmental agencies. ISF fulfills its mission of helping businesses increase productivity through delivering quality software with its "resources," a term the firm proudly uses to describe the 48-member staff employed in various technology-based specializations. ISF places highly skilled application developers, software developers and product managers on a variety of different projects and spends the whole year recruiting for these positions. Ramona Poole, ISF's human resources coordinator, explains: "As candidates apply during the recruitment process, we are looking at their qualifications and if they are the best fit for a position. Then we look at their hiring requirements. When the market is tight, we have to grab whoever we can." In 2008, ISF's recruitment efforts led to the world of work visa sponsorship. The IT firm retained a local attorney to assist in the petition process and discovered that the efficiency ISF strives to provide clients each day wasn't standard business practice in the immigration realm. "I had to reach out to the resources [and] get all of their paperwork," Poole says. "And I had to send that paperwork to the attorney. Once he got it and they formatted it, he would send it back to me to review and approve. And that could be either through snail mail, FedEx or he would email it, depending on what the documents were." Dissatisfied by the lack of efficiency, Poole started looking for a better solution. She ultimately settled on Envoy, a technology-driven immigration provider. Since then, ISF has sponsored multiple foreign nationals for H-1B Person in Specialty Occupation visas for various application development, business analysis and project management roles. Additionally, the firm petitions for L-1 Intracompany Transfer visas for work shared with its Colombia-based sister company.
