To H1B or Not to H1B? Mitigating the Risks Posed by Recent US Immigration Policy Changes


Date :May 16, 2017
Presented By:
Avasant



The recent deluge of rhetoric, EOs and potential regulatory changes to the US Immigration policies and enforcement have put the whole IT Sourcing industry in a turmoil. These policy shifts and H1B work visa changes, with others still in the works, will fundamentally alter how US corporations leverage offshore providers. The three primary areas impacted by these immigration changes include (1) changes to work visa programs (especially the H1-B visa), (2) the freedom to travel to the US, and (3) a changing climate towards foreigner workers. What exactly is the impact of these changes on the ability of US companies to hire offshore providers, how are offshore providers changing their global delivery model to address these challenges and how can US companies mitigate these risks and even take advantage of the ensuing opportunities? 

 

In this webinar, Avasant’s experts on Vendor Risk Management, Ravi Mahalingam and Dev Batta, will examine the cause-and-effect of these new immigration initiatives and will provide industry-honed insight into the pros, cons, mitigation strategies and potential opportunities as a result of these policy shifts.
