2021 Immigration Trends: Global Talent Acquisition
Despite travel restrictions and the economic slowdown created by the COVID-19 pandemic and related shutdowns, visa sponsorship remained crucial to meeting hiring goals for employers in 2020. Our Immigration Trends Report found that 82% of employers expect their foreign national headcount to increase or remain the same over the next year. Moving forward, global talent from abroad - and the U.S. education system, will continue to play an important role in the workforce. Envoy Chief People Officer Kira Meinzer and Director of Talent Acquisition Elke Osadnik take a look at the employer trends in talent acquisition and immigration we uncovered this year, including the impact of remote work, the role of U.S. universities and colleges, and more.
