Brain Bite Break: Building Cross-Cultural Bridges: How the J-1 Visa Program Supports Global Talent Mobility | Sessions
American employers are struggling to recruit qualified workers despite high levels of unemployment. When companies need to fill a position, their goal is to hire the best trained and highest qualified candidate. A significant amount of that talent comes from foreign nationals.
The definition of global talent mobility is widening substantially. Now, it is all about putting the person at the center. Sending employees abroad entails more than just moving them from point A to point B. Employees desire a personal and authentic experience, as well as meaning in their life, work, and tasks. The Exchange Visitor (J-1 Visa) program – often overlooked by corporate mobility professionals – provides the tools and structure that help both the visiting professional and the hosting employee achieve their professional and cultural goals. Please join this session brought to you by the SHRM J-1 visa team to hear from a person who’s “been there, done that.” Marion Anderson, an HR executive from the UK and a J-1 visa program alumna, will share with you some takeaways and impressions from her participation in the program.
