Here are a few key results:
- 74% of respondents reported that the ability to obtain work visas in a timely, predictable and flexible manner is critical to their organization’s business objectives.
- 35% of respondents whose organizations are subject to the H-1B visa cap reported that they had lost key organizational talent due to H-1Bs being unavailable under the cap.
- Respondents report cumbersome immigration procedures at least double the length of the hiring process. In some cases, the total time needed to hire an employee is increased 6x, despite the fact that for most employers, immigrants constitute less than 5% of the U.S. workforce.
