Pittsburgh companies are in competition for talent, and foreign talent is a large piece of that, especially when it comes to STEM talent. By attracting and retaining foreign nationals, Pittsburgh companies are becoming more diverse and inclusive.When putting employement strategies in place, it is essential to keep up up with the policy trends. Policies are changing around foreign talent, with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) working to amend the H-1B program by redefining the employer/employee relationship and the Department of Labor (DOL) is forging ahead with increasing prevailing wages for the H-1B and PERM (employment-based green card visa) programs.Engage with professionals working in the global immigration law, government policy, and mobility field as they break down how employers can navigate immigration policies and procedures, particularly due to the employment sponsorship process. The goal of this discussion is to speak to companies in our region looking to attract and retain foreign STEM talent.
