Sponsors & Observers
More than 40 major international companies and organisations worldwide support Permits Foundation with an annual donation. These diverse organisations show the breadth of concern and quality of support for international dual careers in both the private and public sector.
According to our 2012 Survey – featuring 177 international organisations with nearly 7.5m employees between them – 96% of employers agreed that international mobility was highly important to them, with 92% citing work permit restrictions as having a negative effect on their business. In the same survey, 96% of employers said that partners of employees should be allowed to work in the host country throughout an assignment and 70% felt that their organisation should do more to support dual careers.
Becoming a sponsor will help to bring about sustainable improvements to work permit legislation. This will support your HR strategy and reduce the cost and upheaval of assignment refusal and early return amongst highly skilled employees. It will also underpin your policies on mobility and dual careers, equal opportunity and diversity, social responsibility and your image as an attractive, best practice, international employer. If you are a service provider, it will demonstrate to your clients how you are helping to improve global mobility.
