Guide for Employers - Training and employing refugees and asylum (Unofficial translation)
Guide pour les employeurs – Former et employer des réfugiés et demandeurs (Original language title)
The Belgian employers organisation, Federation of Enterprises in Belgium, has launched a new guide of good practices for the recruitment and training of refugees or asylum seekers. It contains a series of advises concerning administrative needs, lists difficulties that are plausible to emerge when employing fugitives: language knowledge, working culture and recognition of qualifications, to cite a few and highlights opportunities for business. 'Barriers to work faced by new arrivals are high ... For companies and their staff, these challenges, however, are an unique opportunity to gain new ideas, a new potential', reads the Federation's publication.
The guide also stresses the crucial role of quick recruitment and employment for the social and economic integration of the refugee populations in Belgium.
