June 19, 2018. A press release, featured in Payment Week, discusses Amplio Recruiting’s year-round mission to hire and recruit refugees for employers. World Refugee Day is June 20th and this press release highlights Amplio Recruiting’s efforts that are not limited to one day. The release goes on to discuss Amplio Recruiting’s successes that include helping 300 refugees find jobs in 2017 and contributing $35 thousand to programs that provide job training for refugees. Amplio Recruiting has a goal to help 600 refugees find full-time jobs in 2018.
Refugees have come from around the world to make better lives for themselves and their families. An essential part of this effort is finding employment. By uniting businesses with refugees, Atlanta-based Amplio Recruiting is tapping into a labor source that has been proven to be reliable and committed to improving their lives in their new home country.
Despite popular perception, refugees aren’t a burden on the economy. A 2018 study conducted by the Fiscal Policy Institute surveyed some United States employers that hired refugees. Seventy-six percent of respondents reported higher retention rates for refugees than other employees.
The recruiting office also has a 70 percent hiring retention rate compared to the industry standard of 40 percent. Today, there are 156 refugee employees on Amplio Recruiting’s payroll. In 2017, refugees working for Amplio paid over $1 million in United States taxes.
