Buffalo Next: Refugee workers offer talent pool for employers struggling to hire
BUFFALO, N.Y. (The Buffalo News) — As local employers struggle to fill job openings, there’s a talent pool they might not have considered: refugees who have moved to the Buffalo Niagara region.
Some local companies, including Buffalo Wire Works, Confer Plastics and Avanti Advanced Manufacturing, have highlighted their experiences welcoming refugees to their workforces.
There’s opportunity for more employers to hire refugees, from a variety of different sectors, said Grant Loomis, vice president of government affairs and economic development at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership.
As family and friends come together to celebrate Labor Day and honor the working men and women who are the lifeblood of our economy, it seems appropriate to reflect on the kind of workforce our community needs now and in the future.
