Immigration & The Impact On Corporate Culture & Inclusion
“The need for corporate engagement”
Central London, September 26th 2016
Migration is a topic of immense relevance in contemporary life. In 2013, 232 million people worldwide were international migrants, representing a total of 3.2% of the world population (UN,2013). In todays economy, migration plays a vital role.
Although businesses are not considered the traditional stakeholders when discussing migration management and integration policy, private companies are increasingly dealing with topics relating to migration and development. At a time when ‘diversity and inclusion’ issues are increasingly personally emotive and political, how are organisational goals affected by very 21st century issues such as immigration.
The aim of this conference will be to bridge the gap between business and migration through corporate case studies, expert led panel, workshops & audience driven conversation.
With a firm focus on return on investment for businesses that engage on migration we will be inviting a corporate audience to engage in the following topics:
- What are the costs and benefits to businesses that have initiatives on migration?
- Suggestions on how, why and what businesses can do that will be of benefit to both migrants and the core of the business
- Discuss timely topics affecting modern diversity and inclusion practice
- Case studies of extensive refugee’s integration program
This one day conference sets itself apart by answering to the call from businesses to demonstrate the costs and benefits, as well as the potential ROI for migration.
The takeaways & results of this innovative conference will provide a tool for businesses to apply in their consideration of direct involvement with the topic of migration, including those that do not have a history in addressing it. The results also serve as a foundation for further econometric and quantifiable analysis of ROI for businesses engaging with migration.
