With working-age population growth falling throughout mature economies during the next decade, immigrants will play an even greater role in meeting human capital requirements of firms. In this latest installment of The Conference Board’s Window On Series, join economists and business professionals from the US, Europe, and Canada to learn about:

  • The roles and regions where foreign-born workers can play the largest role in helping firms address talent gaps;
  • The key procedural obstacles businesses in these countries and regions face that may reduce their use of foreign-born workers; and
  • Opportunities and challenges created by employing immigrants and a description of best practices that help these workers successfully join a company’s workforce

Learn how recent immigration research from The Conference Board can help your business successfully engage candidates to fill critical vacancies within your organization.

Who Should Attend: Human capital, diversity and inclusion, and legal professionals reexamining the role immigrants can play within their companies
