Faced with low unemployment and severe skills gaps, today's HR professionals seek talent from around the world. Over 85 percent of SHRM members report that it is very important to recruit talent to meet business needs, regardless of the talent's national origin. Employers must access all pools of untapped workers, but a lack of visas to meet demand and a lack of tools to hire a legal workforce complicate employers' ability to navigate an already complex system.
Today’s workplace immigration system should empower U.S. employers to be competitive and innovative, instead, it discourages a world-class workforce and fails to provide employers with the tools to recruit and retain top global talent. Employers lack a modernized employment immigration system that is reliable and allows them to confirm applicants’ identity and work authorization.
