CTSW’s Shirley Tang, who advises clients on corporate immigration matters, facilitated a lively roundtable of HR and recruitment executives hosted by the Washington D.C. Chamber of Commerce on December 5. Participants came from diverse industries including hospitality, information technology, HR consulting, education, and community-based businesses, and they discussed the challenges of recruiting and staffing in an intensely competitive global marketplace. In a dynamic and interactive discussion, participants shared their experiences about recruiting, training and engaging top-level talent, and about immigration enforcement and E-Verify, particularly in the context of Form I-9 compliance.
“Recruiting and immigration are integral processes, as the stories shared by the participants showed,” said Shirley. “Talent is one of the most valuable assets a business has, and it was a privilege to hear such experienced businesspeople share what they see as today’s most important issues.”
