Across industry sectors, U.S. companies are pursuing a global talent recruitment strategy to fill critical skills gaps. At the same time, human resources (HR), legal departments, and law firms are seeing high attrition rates among paralegals and attorneys with expertise in immigration matters. This dual challenge creates a major administrative headache for HR teams struggling to navigate the complex immigration journey for international recruits.
Outsourcing immigration employment tasks to a corporate law firm or accounting firm can be cost-prohibitive — and few firms have the specialized resources and infrastructure to handle large volumes of visa applications, petitions, mail documents, and other immigration-related activities. Turning it over to an outsourced service provider can be a far more cost-effective option — potentially reducing immigration administrative costs by up to 40%. However, service providers are not all equal when it comes to immigration.
