The past 30 years of US immigration policy has imposed extraordinary hardship on human capital professionals. Higher levels of immigration would have done much to alleviate their struggles finding hard to come by talent. 

The Committee for Economic Development’s recently released immigration policy brief, Immigration Policy That Works, proposes a set of reforms that more closely align the criteria for admitting new immigrants with the future talent requirements of firms. Panelists will discuss the current role of foreign-born workers in the US labor force and offer a series of immigration policy proposals that will help businesses access the talent they need in the places they operate.

Learn how current policy constrains HR’s opportunity to use foreign-born workers and how HR professionals can play a powerful role in shaping future US immigration policy.

Who Should Attend: Human capital professionals experiencing critical talent shortages and legal officers and government relations specialists who want to learn more about the link between immigration policy and labor market outcomes.
