With more and more refugees displaced for longer periods of time, businesses have a critical role to help them integrate economically into their host communities.
We encourage companies to think beyond traditional philanthropy. We work with businesses to support refugees by engaging them as potential employees, entrepreneurs, and consumers. When companies take this approach, they are not only helping refugees, they also see considerable business benefits.
The Business Case for Supporting Refugees
Strengthen the Workforce
Refugees can bring new skills and experiences to a company’s workforce, address talent gaps, and reduce attrition.
Drive Brand Loyalty
Consumers increasingly expect brands to reflect their values and act with integrity. By supporting refugees, brands can earn consumer loyalty and drive sales.
Increase Employee Engagement
Employees are more loyal to companies supporting social causes. By helping refugees, businesses can increase employees’ engagement, productivity and retention.
