Current Issues in H-1B Visas

Gain an understanding of the H-1B visa and its current issues so you are able to make informed decisions regarding hiring foreign professionals.

Many employers cannot find enough professional U.S. workers to meet their needs. For example, the U.S. produces too few engineers, mathematicians, software engineers, doctors, etc. In order to be globally competitive, employers must hire the best and the brightest employees available. Sometimes the best candidate for the job is a foreign national, but how does the employer bring them on board, and how can they keep them? Learn about the latest issues in the H-1B visa, the most commonly used work visa used by foreign professionals in the U.S. This topic will allow HR professionals, recruiters, and business owners and managers to understand the H-1B visa and its current issues and empower them to make informed decisions regarding hiring foreign professionals.
