Preparing Refugees for the Workforce Through Training Opportunities
Companies can upskill refugees through training initiatives. They can provide them with industry-specific knowledge or technical skills – or general training on language or “soft skills” – that will better position refugee candidates to secure meaningful employment.
Tent advises companies on how they can build effective training programs to help connect refugees with work that is commensurate with their potential.
As part of its efforts to impact 16,000 refugees by 2030, Hilton is providing refugees with hospitality skills training.
Microsoft is providing IT training to 200 refugees in the Netherlands through its Azure Academy, and helping them find jobs.
LinkedIn will provide training and/or tailored employment resources to 18,000 refugees around the world over three years, including to approximately 6,000 refugees in the United States.
