Global Employer Summit 2019: Realizing the Untapped Potential of Northeast Ohio’s Global Talent

Join us as we show employers how to take advantage of the global talent being educated, resettled or immigrating to Cleveland to fill workforce needs and become a driver of economic growth.

Many Cleveland companies are benefiting from high-skilled immigrants to enhance their competitiveness. Find out what you need to know about:
•    Hiring international how-to’s: The basic steps for hiring an international student, scientist or executive
•    How to partner with resettlement agencies to secure refugee workers renowned for loyalty and a strong work ethic
•    Making the business case for international hires
•    The keys to building a globally competitive team and retaining international employees

This full-day summit will showcase local employers who are successfully engaging global talent to fill workforce needs, drive business growth and productivity, and contribute to economic growth across the region.
