Staffing and maintaining a competent workforce can be an ongoing challenge for most employers. Your corporate dynamics, product excellence and ongoing client satisfaction are directly affected by the skills, commitment and positive attitudes your team demonstrates. The aptitudes and skills necessary to meet your staffing needs are either in high demand and unavailable or your companies’ needs are so unique that foreign recruitment may be your only solution. For example: your product is manufactured in another country. It would certainly benefit your operation to have employees who were involved in the design and production of that item.
Employers can become overwhelmed with going through the LMIA process to hire a foreign worker, now the challenge is to find that employee. Where do you look? How do you screen and qualify the employee? What process is required to have the employee(s) added to your LMIA? How much is all of this going to cost?
