How can my business benefit from hiring refugees?

RefugeesRefugees are motivated workers
Refugees are survivors of great adversity, having lost their homes, personal property and careers. Their personal need to regain self-sufficiency, their interest in acquiring new skills, and their desire to attain economic stability for their families make them excellent prospects for hire at all levels.

It’s good for your business
Refugee workers bring personal initiative, strong work ethics, skills and diversity to the workplace. They have high job retention rates. In addition, employer tax credits and training incentives are available in many cases.

It’s good for your community
Hiring a refugee not only helps your business but also demonstrates your commitment to building self-sufficiency, strengthening families and promoting more active participation of new arrivals to your community.

It’s good for the economy
Refugees are enthusiastic workers who bring a wide range of experience and expertise to the United States’ workforce. Many were farmers, doctors, tailors, carpenters and tradesmen in their homeland. In addition to contributing their skills, most refugees begin paying taxes within their first year in the U.S.

*Applicants for refugee admission to the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service must meet criteria set out by the INS.
Refugees are lawfully admitted to the U.S. and authorized for immediate employment.
