Joblio reduces staff turnover by Helping Foreign Employees in Crisis

It’s no secret that employee motivation is essential to a company’s success. But what happens when your employees are faced with new challenges, such as moving to a new country for work?.

For many migrant workers, the psychological shock of being away from their family and friends can be devastating. Without proper support, they can quickly lose motivation and become ineffective at their jobs.

This is where Joblio’s ACE Program comes in. By providing close communication and support before and after the move, Joblio’s community and operations managers helps employees adjust to their new environment and retain their motivation. This not only reduces turnover but also leads to a more productive workforce.

Employees in various Canadian companies talk about ACE.

The problem to resolve

As migrant workers increasingly come to the fore in developed countries, the need for adaptation programs to help them deal with anxiety and culture shock has become more pressing. Many migrant workers are promised high salaries and good working conditions by unscrupulous employers, only to find themselves trapped in jobs that are little better than slavery. This not only creates a humanitarian crisis but also hampers economic growth and worsens the already-acute shortage of skilled workers. By offering programs that help migrant workers to adapt to their new surroundings and feel more comfortable in their new lives, we can not only improve their well-being, but also encourage them to stay in their jobs and contribute to the economy. In the long run, this will benefit everyone involved.

2. What is Joblio’s ACE Program

Joblio’s migrant worker support team, known as the ACE Program, helps migrant laborers with pre-departure and post-arrival support. The program has a three-step process: awareness, connection, and empowerment. In the awareness stage, migrant workers learn their rights and are connected with Joblio’s team of global ambassadors and community managers. In the connection stage, migrant workers are connected with resources and support systems. In the empowerment stage, migrant workers are given the tools and knowledge they need to be successful in their new jobs. “The program is designed to help migrant workers feel safe and comfortable in their new environment and to provide them with the skills they need to thrive in their new jobs.”, – says ჯონ პურიჟანსკი, CEO and Founder of Joblio.

2. How the ACE Program helps employees

Unfortunately, migrant employees leave their jobs at a rate at least 20% higher than native workers. The turnover for migrant workers from non-English-speaking countries is even worse – 33% higher than that of natives. Any voluntary turnaround creates costs for employers. But the costs resulting from the turnover of migrant workers can be particularly problematic because the evidence suggests that migrants do not easily move from one local employer to another. This creates a unique challenge for employers who rely on migrant workers. Not only do they have to contend with the costs associated with turnover, but they also face the prospect of having difficulty filling vacant positions. Given the challenges associated with migrant workers, it is essential for employers to find ways to encourage retention. One way to do this is to provide training and support that helps migrant workers feel valued and connected to their workplace. Additionally, offering competitive wages and benefits can also help to reduce turnover rates among migrant workers. By taking these steps, employers can help to create a more stable workforce and minimize the problems associated with turnover.

The program provides close communication and support before and after the move. Our job seekers begin acclimating to their new homes before they even leave their origin countries. It also ensures they receive continuous support once they land in their new home and face unexpected challenges. By offering pre-departure orientations, the ACE program provides migrant workers with the information and skills they need to navigate their new surroundings. This includes everything from learning about the local culture to understanding the legal process for obtaining work visas. The program also offers post-arrival support, such as airport pick-ups and temporary housing assistance. By helping migrant workers to overcome the challenges of adaptation, the ACE program plays an essential role in promoting economic growth. Thanks to programs like this, migrant workers are no longer hindered by anxiety and uncertainty when searching for jobs in unfamiliar countries. In fact, the ACE program has been so successful that it is now being expanded to include other industries beyond migrant labor. With a global shortage of skilled workers, the ACE program is helping to fill the gap and ensure that businesses can continue to thrive.

Why the ACE Program is beneficial for employers

The ACE Program not only helps migrant workers to assimilate into their new surroundings but also provides employers with a pool of highly skilled and motivated employees. In an increasingly global economy, businesses need to be able to attract and retain top talent from around the world. By offering programs that help foreign workers to adjust to their new environment, employers can make sure that they are getting the most out of their employee’s skills and abilities. In addition, the ACE program helps to reduce employee turnover rates. “When workers feel supported and comfortable in their new jobs, they are more likely to stay with their employer for the long term. This not only saves businesses money on training and recruitment costs but also leads to a more productive workforce,”- explains Purizhansky.
