Winning Talent Together: Immigration Employment Strategies

Winning Talent Together: Immigration Employment Strategies for the Future

Join in with a panel of HR practitioners as they break down how employers will navigate changes to immigration policies, particularly due to the H-1B visa. These alterations are making it harder for U.S. companies to hire foreign STEM talent. 

Demand for qualified, highly skilled employees far exceeds the supply available in the pipeline. In past years, Pittsburgh STEM companies in the tech sector could draw upon a supply of foreign nationals with STEM experience and expertise. But that process has become more and more challenging.

Panel Discussion/Questions: 
- Who is most affected by these changes? 
- How are employers dealing with these changes? 
- Do the changes affect current visa holders in any way?
- What are your predictions about future changes in the process surrounding H-1B visa acquisition?
