On December 18th, we celebrated International Migrant’s Day, a holiday established by the UN that reminds us of the vital role that migrants play when it comes to fostering economic growth. With migrants now composing 3.6 percent of the global population, it’s more important than ever before to highlight the hard work and invaluable labour they provide to so many firms.
As former Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon reminds us, “migration is an expression of the human aspiration for dignity, safety and a better future. It is part of the social fabric, part of our very make-up as a human family.” As we head into the new year, I know every member of the Joblio team will strive for more dignified, safe, and productive migrant policies.
In 2015 alone, migrants contributed roughly $6.7 trillion to the global economy, nearly 10% of the worldwide GDP that year. I’m confident that number will continue to climb as Joblio confidently strives toward a more transparent, ethical, and efficient future for all workers.
To the countless migrants around the world who continue working tirelessly toward a brighter future, I can only say thank you – Joblio is deeply grateful for your courage, perseverance, and bold commitment to creating a better tomorrow.
Migration is an expression of the human aspiration for dignity, safety and a better future. It is part of the social fabric, part of our very make-up as a human family.” – Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, UN PRESS RELEASE
