Welcome international talent to EuropeJoin the pledge
The narrative and policy approach in Europe on labour migration and integration needs to change. This will help show the world that Europe is a welcoming continent. We see the availability of global talent and the attractiveness of the European labour market as a means to achieving our entrepreneurial mission. We believe migrant workers contribute to the economic, social, and cultural development of our societies.
As European employers, we support a common European labour migration policy that will enable us to attract, retain and relocate global talent; support the adjustment to new trends of remote work; and ensure equal rights for all workers. This pledge describes our commitment to the development of new legal avenues, equal rights and opportunities within the EU, and a healthy integration and diversity culture within our businesses.
We demand political action in:
Create an open ecosystem for international talent; enable seamless relocation from third countries; allow for talent to flow freely within Europe through enhanced mobility; ease international hiring through more flexibility, more European harmonisation, and less national bureaucracy.
We as employers pledge to:
Offer equal opportunities, wages and conditions for migrants within our company; create a welcome culture and set out diversity targets; support migrants in their relocation; and promote a positive narrative and policy on labour migration internally and externally.
