Hiring & Training

Hiring and training refugees for the workforce

Refugees often face increased barriers to accessing jobs in their new host communities. Companies can play a vital role in creating jobs for refugees, by training them and hiring them directly into their workforce.

Tent advises companies on how they can build effective refugee hiring programs and integrate refugees into their workforces. We connect companies with leading organizations around the world – including with the 9 federally appointed resettlement agencies in the U.S. – that can connect companies with local refugee talent based on their experience and companies’ hiring needs.
