December 18th is the International Migrants Day, as mandated by the UN.
On this day, we applaud companies who offer migrants and displaced people the opportunity not only to survive in a foreign country, but also grow and utilise their skills and knowledge. Migrants bring diversity and versatile capabilities to organisations. We cherish migrant talent, resilience and their contribution to the host economies.
