The business case

Higher retention rates
Newcomers tend to stay with the same employer than with any other hires.
Recruitment benefit
Employers’ efforts to create an inclusive and welcoming workforce for all results in many newcomers reaching out to members of their community who might want to work for that company as well.
Better management skills
Employers are not only happy with the newcomers they've hired, they've often learned from the experience and become better managers of a diverse workforce.
Specialised industry knowledge
Our candidates bring first hand knowledge of international markets and a global outlook to teams, allowing employers to better serve the societies in which they operate.
