One of the biggest challenges facing companies hiring foreign workers in the United States is working within an outdated immigration system that does not fully complement modern business practices. As such, companies must adjust their recruitment strategies to give them the widest access to the global talent pool within the limitations of U.S. work visa options. Overcoming this challenge requires companies to engage with their immigration counsel early in the recruitment process, and ideally before an offer is made to a candidate to determine the most practical visa option, as well as to set realistic onboarding time frames for the business before making an offer. Think of your immigration counsel as your partner in the recruitment process.

And the time to start planning your recruitment program is now. Unless companies start thinking creatively and strategically about their approach, they may be passing up desirable candidates or opportunities for visa sponsorship. Team up with your immigration counsel to explore these other options and to help you shape a recruitment strategy that works for your business.
