Engaging Employers in Immigrant Integration

August 11, 2015


This study examines the role of employers in the integration of immigrants with a focus on workplace practices. A review of the literature and interviews with key informants revealed integration practices employers are undertaking and uncovered the factors that foster and hinder the adoption of such practices. Immigrant-serving organizations, labor unions, and community colleges are instrumental in employers’ decisions to adopt workplace integration practices. By systematizing the knowledge about employer engagement in immigrant integration and identifying what can employers do, this study can be a tool to employers looking to foster the integration of their rapidly growing immigrant workforce.
