Have you REALLY Looked everywhere for Top Talent? Consider the H-1B Visa Program.

Sponsored Content provided by Andy Almeter - President, Leath HR Group, LLC

Sponsoring talent through the H-1B Visa Program is highly rewarding and isn’t as daunting or expensive as you may think, if you have the right legal guidance, that is. You may be saying to yourself, “this is going to cost a fortune, there are too many regulatory hurdles, and why would I sponsor a foreign worker in this political climate, not to mention the ever-evolving immigration policies I’ll have to keep up with?”. 

At Leath HR Group, we understand the concern for the unknown, that’s why we work with experts like Rebecka Reibe, a Business Immigration Lawyer at Ogletree Deakins. The full-service support offered by Rebecka and Ogletree simplifies the H-1B process for companies and allows them to acquire talent beyond the local labor market. In many circumstances, an H-1B visa can be processed, from initiation to approval, in just 5 weeks. We’ve seen firsthand the success of our clients who have found Top Talent via the H-1B Visa Program, here are a few reasons to consider it:

  • Access to specialized talent: The H-1B visa program allows companies to sponsor foreign workers with specialized skills, which may not be readily available in the local labor market. This can be particularly useful for companies operating in technology, engineering, and other STEM fields. A 2019 study showed that immigrants make up almost one-fourth of all STEM workers in the United States.
  • Global talent pool: The H-1B program provides companies with access to a global talent pool, enabling them to attract the best and brightest workers from around the world. This can be particularly important for companies looking to expand internationally or seeking to tap into emerging markets. 
  • Retention of talent: By sponsoring foreign workers through the H-1B program, companies can offer a pathway to permanent residency in the US. This can be a powerful incentive for workers to stay with a company long-term, particularly if they have established roots in the US.
  • Competitive advantage: Companies that can attract and retain top international talent through the H-1B program may gain a competitive advantage in the global marketplace, particularly in fields that require specialized expertise.
