How Can Joblio’s ACE Support Refugees In Canada?

Between March 17 and December 6, 2022, Canadian embassies received 824,494 applications from Ukrainian refugees as part of the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel Program. While this procedure grants them a temporary residence visa, many seek permanent opportunities to remain within the country.

However, as”whether refugees fared well in Canada ultimately depends on their employment prospects,” business owners across the country must work to offer suitable employment opportunities that will provide them with stability, enrichment, and social mobility.

“At Joblio, we created ACE, or Applicant Concierge Experience, our proprietary program to help foreign workers assimilate into their host country. Through this program, we provide them with invaluable insight into the host country through language and culture classes, alongside more consistent support throughout their employment, both of which make assimilation as easy as possible,” – said ესთერ კაცი, CMO and Global ACE Director, Joblio.

What exactly is ACE?

Our ACE program offers pre-departure and post-arrival support to foreign talent who have secured a job overseas. The support offered by the program, and Joblio as a whole, can be split into three categories: 

  1. Preparing the worker.
  2. Arrival in the host country.
  3. Departure.

Preparing the Worker.

When a recruit enters the ACE program, they will already have a job offer within their host country. We then provide them with the knowledge and insight they need to make the most of this opportunity, ensuring their time within their new role will benefit all parties. 

Telegram Chat.

Once a job offer has been processed, one of our community management ambassadors will curate a group chat of around 20 workers. During this chat, they will share the following information: 

This chat is designed to support workers as they familiarize themselves with their host country. However, they will also share specific information regarding their employment in this chat. For example, this could include company rules and policies or whether or not employees will wear a uniform. 

Simply put, the chat is designed to ensure that foreign workers know everything they need about their new role before they step foot on the plane. This means they feel confident and empowered, putting them on the path to success. 

Language Classes.

Community managers will also encourage workers to enroll in weekly classes typically held on zoom. 

During these classes, 70% of the session will be geared towards learning the host country’s language, whereas the other 30% will be dedicated to learning (and understanding) cultural norms and traditions. These classes are tailored directly around the recruits’ careers so that they know the specific vocabulary and language used in their new workplace. For example, the vocabulary used by a senior pharmacist will differ considerably from someone who works in retail – and our specialist classes cater to this.

Language and cultural classes are beneficial in more ways than one. They can make it easier for foreign workers to communicate with their managers (and colleagues), thus becoming a more valuable team member. This also reduces the chances of them struggling in the workplace. 

These classes are mandatory, given that cultural adjustment is one of the most significant barriers refugees face when settling in a new country. For example, a recent study reported that “struggling with cultural adjustment can make refugees feel isolated, pressured, depressed, and intimidated.” As such, being aware of their host countries’ culture and customs can help them prepare for their new life and help them settle in. Failure to adjust could mean they leave before their contract expires, resulting in a loss of money for all parties.

Introduction to Local Community & Operations Manager.

The group will meet their local community and operations manager, who will support them throughout their employment. These connections are best made early; as community managers can help ease any anxieties the workers face before departure. 

Community and operations managers will provide the foreign talent under their care with incredibly varied assistance during their professional relationship. For example, they will put them in contact with landlords who are willing to take on tenants without credit checks. They’ll also ensure that rental fees are no more than 30% of their monthly income and that properties are within a reasonable distance from their place of employment (30 minutes or less). This support will make it easier for refugees to settle into their host country, as they can sign a lease before arrival. 

The community manager will also provide them with information and support when they work to obtain their social insurance, permits, state ID cards, and more, depending on which country they will work in. For example, they will tell them exactly where they need to go to obtain these documents and what paperwork they should take with them. 

Beyond this, operations managers are there to offer support throughout the entire employment contract. If employees feel they are being mistreated, the manager can advocate for them. 

Arrival in the host country.

Departure Support.

Once all of the necessary paperwork has been completed, it’s time for the employee to depart from their origin country. However, as discussed above, the new employee will, by this stage, have a thorough understanding of what lies ahead. 

They’ll have already signed a lease for a home and an employment contract and will know everything there is to know about their host country. They’ll also be provided with detailed information on how to get from their airport to their new home upon arrival. 

Departure. 

Once an employment contract has reached its end date, Joblio will also support workers should they be returning to their homes. For example, they will ensure they know their employment timeline and that they have purchased relevant plane/transport tickets. 

As many may be keen to remain within their host country permanently, Joblio will also put them in contact with a skilled immigration lawyer to discuss this further. We also host free webinars on the legalities and regulations in place regarding immigration. This way, foreign workers are empowered and informed, able to make decisions that protect their best interests without falling victim to scams or abuse. 

How can the Joblio ACE Program support Ukrainian Refugees in Canada? 

“There are many benefits associated with refugees making the most of the Joblio ACE Program,” said ესთერ კაცი, CMO, and Global ACE Director, Joblio.

For example, it can:

A team member would be happy to discuss the program further, whether you’re a job seeker or an employer. 

The Challenges For Migrant Women Reporting Abuse

It’s no secret that migrant women face various challenges in their daily lives. For example, a recent report from the International Organization of Migration found that “women reported more challenges in accessing employment and training opportunities, as well as health-care services, often following abuses and exploitation during the migration journey.”

However, beyond difficulty in seeking employment and assimilating into their host countries, migrant women are also “disproportionately at risk from gendered violence, including domestic and sexual violence,” according to End Violence Against Women.

A 2022 report from the Globalization and Health Journal “consistently observed that rates of victimization are first, higher for migrants than compared to local populations and second, significantly higher for vulnerable groups of migrants.” Here, vulnerable migrants were characterized “due to their immigration status or individual characteristics (gender, sex, age group).

Migrant Women and Domestic Abuse: An Incomplete Analysis.

While pre-existing data demonstrates that migrant women, or those with refugee status, are more likely to fall victim to domestic abuse, it’s important to note that we may not have a complete picture. After all, in the same sense that they are more vulnerable to this form of violence, they are also more likely to withhold this information. 

For example, a recent Open Rights Group report found that “migrant women are less likely to report domestic violence to the police for fear of deportation.” As such, they are faced with an impossible choice – stay in a situation they know is dangerous or risk deportation to an environment that is potentially even more unstable. 

They must also contend with the usual factors that encourage domestic violence victims to remain silent. For example, in many cases, survivors deal with shame and embarrassment and “may believe the abuse was somehow their fault or that they caused it.” 

However, while gathering this data is helpful in highlighting just how widespread the issue is – it’s also essential to consider the different ways this data can be used, especially if it goes against the best interest of the women in question. 

For example, many studies have found that when a migrant reports abuse to governing bodies, they sometimes receive an immigration notice shortly after. One such occasion is explored in more detail in the Open Rights Group Report: 

“She was undocumented, so she was terrified to use the LAWRS service. 

After evaluating her case, the caseworker recommended reporting it to the police because of the high risk of the situation. When the woman reported it, she received an immigration enforcement letter. 

The police also came to her house as part of the report, but when they realized she was undocumented, they called immigration enforcement in front of her.” 

Consequently, it’s clear there is a need to develop better systems to support migrant women – meaning they must not be forced to stay in unsafe situations through fear of deportation. 

Why are Migrant Women more at risk of Domestic Abuse and Violence? 

Unfortunately, there are many reasons why migrant women are at greater risk of domestic abuse and violence. 

Financial Struggles. While there are many different ‘triggers’ associated with domestic abuse and violence, many studies found “clear evidence that economic stressors are associated with both the onset and escalation of abuse.” As many migrant women and families are more likely to experience financial struggles, this could contribute to the high rates of violence they face.

On a similar note, if migrant women face financial difficulties, they may worry about how they will provide for themselves if they move away from their abuser. For example, if they do not work, they may rely entirely on their abuser.

No clear way to report abuse. Unfortunately, wanting to report abuse and being able to do so are not one and the same. For example, if migrant women are worried their immigration status will be impacted by reporting, they may be forced to remain silent. Many abusers may use the threat of deportation as part of their entrapment tactic, especially if deportation will separate the woman from her family and children. 

Conversely, language barriers or poor access to resources may leave them feeling as though there’s no support out there for them. As such, “the lack of safe reporting mechanisms creates a barrier for migrant women seeking support to flee violence and exploitation, putting their lives at risk and allowing perpetrators to exert abuse with impunity.” 

How can we help resolve this issue? 

“As global domestic violence rates rise, it’s clear that change is necessary. As such, both individuals and organizations must be aware of the steps they can take to protect migrant women facing domestic violence or other forms of abuse,” said Jon Purizhansky, CEO and Founder of Joblio. 

Donate to charities supporting migrant women. Donating to charities or supporting organizations that help migrant women can help provide them with the support they need to leave a dangerous situation. 

Support community engagement. For migrant women to seek support from those around them, being engaged within their local community is often a prerequisite, given that this engagement helps them build a support network.

Call for systemic change. Another way we, as a society, can work to protect vulnerable members of our society, such as documented and undocumented migrant women, is by calling for systemic change. We must create pathways for these individuals to safely report abuse without deportation becoming a side-effect of their asking for help.

Beyond these individual efforts and push for changes in legislation or protection for vulnerable members of our society, we hope that the work carried out through Joblio can also enact positive change. After all, the company was founded to give everyone an opportunity to be employed ethically and safely – reducing the chances of them facing sexual exploitation or abuse. 

“Every employee who enters the Joblio family through the ACE program receives 24/7 access to a chat, where they can instantly report any abuse at the workplace or harassment at their housing. This service enables us to provide them with support as soon as issues arise, ensuring we are acting with their best interests at heart,” said ჯონ პურიჟანსკი.

“I’d also like to take a moment to thank each and every member of the Joblio team,” says Jon. “I feel honored to have a great, self-motivated team to work with. As such, I would like to express my personal gratitude for your support, your enthusiasm, your creativity, your ethical standards, and all of the hard work you do.” 

What’s next for Joblio?

We wish everyone a happy and healthy 2023! 

Why Hiring Foreign Talent Can Help With The Canadian Labor Shortage

Right now, Canada is experiencing a significant labor/talent shortage. In fact, a study conducted by Proof Point found that “more than half of Canadian businesses say labor shortages are limiting their ability to increase production—up from 40% before the pandemic and 30% a decade ago.” 

The impact of these shortages are far-ranging. Firstly, unfilled vacancies cost businesses considerable amounts of money every day, with a recent study predicting losses of  $454 a week or $1800 a month when a job remains vacant. Unfulfilled vacancies also mean that your current employees are forced to fill in the gaps left by their absent teammates. This can cause both efficiency and productivity rates to plummet, putting your business on a downward spiral that can be hard to recover from. Overbearing your current workforce can also lead to burnout, which will worsen employee turnover rates. 

“As such, it’s crucial that business owners across all industries find new ways to conquer the talent shortage – and hiring foreign talent through global employment platforms such as Joblio could be the solution you are looking for, “ said ჯონ პურიჟანსკი, CEO and Founder of Joblio. 

How can foreign talent help with the talent shortage? 

There are many reasons why foreign talent can prove to be invaluable to Canadian business owners amid the talent shortage. 

Firstly, “annual immigration in Canada amounts to around 300,000 new immigrants – one of the highest rates per population of any country in the world.” These figures are likely to rise considerably in the coming months, as Canada continues to welcome an influx of refugees – such as Ukrainians fleeing the Russian invasion under the Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel (CUAET). This means that foreign talent makes up a considerable (and growing) % of job seekers in Canada. As such, your ideal candidate is likely a member of one of Canada’s vibrant immigrant communities. 

Not only are there hundreds of newcomers actively looking for work – but they’re also bringing a lot of talent into the mix. While they may not possess the same formal qualifications as Canadian employees, they’re often more determined, more focused, and willing to adapt to any challenges you throw their way. They also have varied experience working across numerous key industries, such as construction, hospitality, and more.  This, combined with their unique skillsets, means they’re an asset to any company they join. 

Ready to expand your team? We’re here to help. 

Despite the many benefits associated with hiring foreign talent, many employers are unwilling to take the leap. This is because they associate the idea of procuring international talent with a lengthy employment process through LMIA, wherein they must wait for several months to locate the talent, before embarking upon a complicated legal process while they obtain VISAs and other forms of documentation.

However, at Joblio, we work to ensure that you can enjoy the benefits of hiring foreign talent without the wait time. This is because we’re already embedded in new immigrant communities within Canada, helping talented job seekers connect with employers that need them. 

“Our database contains over 10k new Canadian Immigrants, who are ready to start working right away,” said ჯონ პურიჟანსკი.

How Joblio Provides Upward Mobility

At Joblio, our core aim is to help connect foreign talent with employers that desperately need them – cultivating relationships that are mutually beneficial and allow businesses to thrive. 

Above all, we’re passionate about ensuring that the opportunities we provide to job seekers enable them to better their lives through upward mobility. 

What is upward mobility? 

“There are various definitions of upward mobility, but they all relate to ‘the experience of moving up into a more comfortable economic position in society,’” said ჯონ პურიჟანსკი, CEO and Founder of Joblio.  

“For example, by making it easier for companies across Canada to hire foreign talent, we’re providing talent with more opportunities to progress in their careers. This lowers unemployment, while also giving them the chance to obtain higher-paid jobs,” he said. 

“Our aim to provide foreign talent with upward mobility aligns closely with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those that ‘promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.’” 

How is Joblio providing opportunities for upward mobility? 

Refugees and new immigrants face various barriers when it comes to securing employment – and by extension, achieving upward mobility. For example, this includes: 

“Joblio’s ACE program is designed to eradicate these barriers, putting foreign talent on the cusp of success,”  said Purizhansky.  

Job Seeking Barriers. 

Refugees and new immigrants are often incredibly active job seekers once they have obtained the relevant paperwork and a work permit. However, a combination of biases and setbacks often means that they end up in positions they would otherwise be overqualified for. For example, a recent Forbes study found that “over one-third of highly educated immigrants in employment are overqualified for their jobs.” 

When they take on these roles, they are often doing so out of a desire to provide for themselves and their family. They feel as though certain doors are already closed to them. 

At Joblio, we hope to eradicate this issue by partnering with a range of company’s across all industries – including businesses such as your own. This process comes with many benefits – especially as it means that skilled workers are given the chance to shine in the industries that need them. Furthermore, this boosts job satisfaction rates, which allows businesses to grow and develop. 

Language Barriers. 

While over 200 languages are spoken in Canada, the majority of workplaces require talent that are English-speaking. While proficiency levels can vary, this requirement is often put in place to allow smooth and easy communication among team members. As a result, it is particularly important in high-pressure or dangerous environments, such as construction or building sites. 

In order to eliminate language barriers, we provide our jobseekers with language courses and classes that help them to develop their language skills quickly. Again, this opens them up to more opportunities in the workplace, as they’re able to apply for more varied positions. This can also work towards upward mobility as “those who are bilingual or multilingual can earn 5%-20% more per hour than those who aren’t.” 

Housing Barriers.

One of the biggest roadblocks and concerns that new immigrants face in Canada is finding suitable housing for themselves and their families. After all, there are many factors at play here. They want to find a space that is safe, with a strong sense of community. This helps them feel at home, even though they may be very far from the life they knew previously. Sometimes, access to nice housing or living spaces can limit their job search as they become tethered to a certain place or property – even if they’re aren’t many opportunities in that area.

At Joblio, we hope to eradicate housing struggles and make it easier for new immigrants to find a job and a house that meets their needs by providing them with three, valid housing options to consider. This housing is always within 45 minutes from their work and is priced at no more than 30% of their total net income budget. 

Once they’ve selected a property that meets their needs, one of our dedicated and friendly operations managers will talk them through the rest of the process. For example, while we do not cover or subsidize housing costs, we can make it possible for new immigrants to rent out properties without credit scores. This takes a lot of the stress out of moving to a new place, so the candidates can focus their full attention on their work without worrying about accommodation. 

Pre-existing biases. 

One of the biggest roadblocks that foreign talent face is due to pre-existing biases or misinformation. For example, employees may be hesitant to hire foreign talent as they believe the process will take too long. However, as our services are incredibly streamlined, many job seekers on our platform are able to start work quickly, often within seven days. This gives foreign talent the opportunity to excel by ensuring they get their foot through the door.

Once they join your team, you’re sure to see what an asset they are to your company.

How The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals Can Help You Grow Your Business

In previous blogs, we’ve touched upon the importance of the UN’s sustainable development goals when it comes to building a better, more equitable future for all. While the goals are altruistic, their implementation will also benefit businesses of all sizes moving forward. 

With that in mind, here are just some of the ways in which the SDG’s can help you to grow your business.

The SDG’s can solve the staffing crisis. 

Canada is currently facing a rather alarming staffing crisis. For example, “There were 34,315 vacant nursing jobs in Canada at the end of 2021, a 133% increase from 2019” As these figures are reflected in just about every industry, it’s clear that the problem isn’t going to go away on its own.

“By working to uphold the UN’s aim to “promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all”, business owners can find new ways to fill these vacancies, such as by hiring foreign talent or refugees,”  said Jon Purizhansky, CEO and Founder of Joblio. 

This will enable you to find new employees from your company sooner. rather than later. This will save your business money as you are no longer facing the massive cost of unfilled positions. 

Joblio hopes to help achieve this goal – in fact, it was the entire reason we launched the platform. By helping employers across all industries connect with their ideal employees, we’re not only working to reduce the impact of the staffing crisis but also ensuring that people have access to fulfilling and rewarding careers. 

This works to directly support refugees’ economic agency as they’re able to pursue work that is meaningful and aligns with their talents, instead of being turned away to positions they are already qualified for. For example, a recent survey found that 62% of immigrants aged 15 and over are employed in Canada. While this is considerably higher than in other nations, there is still room for improvement – especially as a considerable amount of able individuals are actively seeking work. 

The Sustainable Development Goals empower future innovators. 

Through improving access to education (goal four), work opportunities (goal eight) and reducing inequalities (goal ten), we’re building the working landscape of tomorrow. This means that we’re creating more diverse spaces, where new and innovative ideas can be brought to the table. As a result, when hiring a refugee you are bringing in key skills and “diversity which can enhance local economics and promote innovation and creativity”. 

“As a result, in doing so, we’re empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators who will no doubt change many industries moving forward,” said Jon Purizhansky.

The SDG’s fight poverty.

There are many ways in which sustainable development goals work to combat poverty. In relation to refugees or displaced individuals, these goals are designed to reduce the severe economic pressures they face when settling into their new homes. 

Many studies have found that “economic poverty was endemic and a growing problem for refugees”, likely because they have limited access to employment opportunities. By providing them with access to fair wages, they can begin to progress through upwards mobility. They have more money to support themselves and their family and as a result, can begin to spend more money too. This benefits the growth of small businesses as they’ll receive enhanced custom.

When there is more money being spent as a whole, businesses are given the funding they need to thrive. As a result, working towards the UN’s sustainable development goals can prove to be not only rewarding but profitable.

5 Reasons Why Sustainable Development Goals Are Important

In our last blog, we outlined the United Nations Sustainable development goals, alongside the steps we are taking as a company to support and uphold them.However, we also thought it was important to touch upon the reasons why these goals were outlined in the first place. 

“Understanding the motives behind these goals puts us all in a better position to support them and ensure the changes are brought to fruition. After all, it provides us with a framework for action we can take to help, both on a personal level and within the company itself,” said ჯონ პურიჟანსკი, CEO and Founder of Joblio With that in mind, here are five reasons why sustainable development goals are important.

Setting Goals works.

Setting goals is one of the most effective ways to bring about change. That’s why we’re so often encouraged to set targets and goals at work. Furthermore, “in a complex world, organizations and countries can align their agendas and prioritize funding” through effective goal-setting. There are many examples of this methodology working. For example, in the year 2000, it was hoped to halve poverty by 2015, and “Poverty, as measured by living on less than $1.25 a day, has halved.”

Sustainable Goals change lives.

While the goals are designed to produce widespread change, it’s important that we remember the impact they have on individuals. For example, at Joblio, when working towards goal #8 (Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all), we’re helping foreign talent and refugees secure life-changing positions in their chosen industry. Not only does this provide them with a chance to progress in their career, but it improves their economic outlook quite considerably. As a result, they’re able to better provide for themselves and their family moving forward. 

Sustainable Goals create a more equal world.

There’s no denying that being born in a certain country provides us with privileges that other areas of the world do not have access to. For example, while we may have taken our schooling for granted, 58.4 million children currently do not have access to basic education. By supporting the UN’s sustainable goals, we’re working to remove these barriers so that everyone is on an equal, fair footing. As a result, we’re creating a better world for all. 

Sustainable Goals Will Help the Economy.

The UN’s sustainable goals will also help improve the global economy. For example, unemployment places a strain on local economies as “unemployed people tend to spend less, may accrue more debt, and unemployment may lead to higher payments from state and federal governments for things like food stamps.” As labor shortages are proving to be a persistent trend in Canada, we hope to resolve this issue through our commitment to improving access to job opportunities for foreign talent. This way, they’re able to secure better, higher-paying jobs. 

Sustainable Goals create better opportunities for all.

By committing to bringing sustainable goals to life within our communities, we’re creating better opportunities for future generations. For example, by furthering their careers, foreign talent are able to explore better employment opportunities. As a result, they’re able to share new ideas, thoughts, and perspectives with their employers that can change a workplace for the better. Their ideas could lead to company growth, or even create more jobs. As a result, we’re investing in future opportunities with every single hire made through our platform.

“At Joblio, our core aim is to make a real difference in the lives of foreign talent living in Canada (and beyond). In doing so, our motivations align themselves with these goals for sustainable development,” said ჯონ პურიჟანსკი.

“Joblio is already on the path to achieving these goals – without relying on charitable donations to make such events possible.”

Joblio and Social Impact

At Joblio, our core aim is to make a real difference in the lives of foreign talent living in Canada (and beyond). In doing so, our motivations align themselves with the United Nations’ goals for sustainable development. 

What are the UN’s sustainable development goals? 

The Sustainable Development Goals are 17 goals pulled together by the UN in early 2015, designed to serve as a “shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future.” The goals are: 

Hopefully, these goals will be fully realized by 2030, creating a fairer and more equitable world for all. 

How is Joblio working towards a social impact? 

“At Joblio, we focus on helping those living in migrant communities find work that is rewarding and well-compensated,” said ჯონ პურიჟანსკი, CEO and Founder of Joblio. In doing so, we hope to help meet some of the goals outlined above via upwards mobility. For example, our work assists with: 

No Poverty. The barriers faced by migrant workers upon their arrival in the new country often mean they find it hard to obtain work that supports them (and their families). In fact, a recent study has found that “many new immigrants enter into a cycle of poverty due to unemployment, isolation, and unaccredited education”. The Joblio platform works to eradicate this issue by connecting skilled workers with employers who value their time, skills, and efforts. As a result, they are able to obtain high-paying jobs. 

Gender Equality. According to a recent study, “migrant women find it harder to get work despite qualifications.” At Joblio, we hope to make it easier for women of all ages to obtain fulfilling work that aligns with their skills, passion, and talents, while also providing them with fair pay. 

Decent Work and Economic Growth. This goal aligns entirely with Joblio’s motivation, as it’s our desire to widen job prospects for migrant workers, while also helping to solve the Canadian employment crisis. By working with employers across a wide range of industries, we’re helping migrant workers to get their foot in the door and begin long, prosperous careers. The roles we advertise on our site or app offer excellent opportunities for job and career progression. 

Sustainable Cities & Communities. Communities play a significant role in ensuring migrant workers feel at home in their new country. This, in turn, impacts their approach to work. Our ACE program focuses on building a strong, supportive community base for employees, where they are able to connect with others in similar situations to them and form lasting relationships. 

Peace and Justice. Joblio works to provide equal opportunities for job seekers, so they are able to find a career that they truly enjoy, while also being in a position to achieve upward mobility. That is, they are able to enhance their quality of life by earning more money, achieving better job stability, and more. One way in which we achieve this goal is by offering learning opportunities that enhance their skill set, especially when it comes to closing language barriers. 

Final Thoughts.
