Integrating Refugees Through Impact Sourcing

In partnership with leading business process outsourcing associations, Tent has launched an impact sourcing initiative in Colombia to advance the integration of Venezuelan refugees and support their host communities.
More than five million people have fled Venezuela in recent years - with Colombia alone welcoming about 2 million Venezuelans. While many Venezuelans have high levels of education and good English language skills, they still face barriers to finding decent jobs.

The business process outsourcing (BPO) sector in Colombia is well positioned to address this challenge. In fact, many of these firms are already hiring Venezuelans to work alongside their Colombian employees. Giving Venezuelans employment allows them to better integrate into their new communities, while BPO firms benefit from a committed and hard-working workforce.

BPO firms are laying the groundwork to scale up the integration of Venezuelans

Through their existing efforts to hire Venezuelans, the Colombian BPO sector has built a strong and dependable workforce. These BPO firms are laying the foundations to work with multinational companies that buy their services, and develop projects to scale up the integration of Venezuelans in their workforces.

Participating Members

Major BPO companies in Colombia have joined Tent’s Impact Sourcing Initiative. These companies have already hired 3,500 Venezuelans, with considerable business benefits.
