 Employer Solutions
To build the economy of the future, the United States must create the workforce of the future, and U.S. employers need an immigration system that works for them, not against them.

The Council for Global Immigration (formerly known as the American Council on International Personnel (ACIP)) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – who collectively represent the U.S. employers and the HR and legal professionals who navigate the immigration system everyday – advocate meaningful, practicable reforms for U.S. employers that include:

U.S. Employers Need … Certainty in Hiring

Trusted Employer
U.S. Employers Need … Increased System Efficiency

Future Highly Skilled Workforce
U.S. Employers Need … A Future Flow of Highly Educated and Skilled Talent

U.S. employers need top talent to grow the economy, but they currently face a skills gap. Specifically, they need an employment-based immigration system that welcomes highly educated and highly skilled professionals by clearing backlogs, improving future access to green cards and temporary visas such as H-1B and L-1 visas, reinstating domestic visa revalidation and expanding spouse and partner work authorization.
