    Employer Listening Sessions - Integrating Immigrants into your Workforce

    Presented By: New American Welcome Center at the University Y

    Hosted By: Champaign County EDC and Champaign County Chamber of Commerce

    Did you know that Champaign County is home to 24,000 immigrants from nearly 80 countries around the world and comprise a growing segment of our workforce? As part of the New American Welcome Center’s work to build a Welcome Plan for Champaign County, they are seeking feedback from local employers about the opportunities and challenges you have encountered working with immigrant employees. Additionally, they want to hear your ideas on what would help your business do a better job recruiting and on-boarding immigrants as employees.

    The New American Welcome Center will also share general feedback collected to date and ask for your input as they consider what to include in their Welcome Plan. All information shared will remain confidential and only be represented in aggregate form.
