Training immigrants for your company
IINE can provide customized programs to train your current and potential employees. Our instructors have years of experience teaching English to new Americans and preparing people for jobs in the healthcare and hospitality industry. IINE programs train Certified Nursing Assistants, prepare people for jobs in hotels and hospitals in the region, and deliver customized programs to help workers improve their English so they can advance at their place of work. We are happy to speak with your Human Resources team about how we can train your workforce to succeed, while helping you retain more quality people, and reduce your recruiting costs.
Placing talent at companies in Massachusetts and New Hampshire
New England’s employers are facing the most acute labor shortage in more than 50 years. IINE staff has more connections in the immigrant community than any other organization in the region. We place workers in hospitality, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and other fast growing industries. Our employment case specialists meet with employers to learn about their staffing needs, ascertain the skills and suitability of our clients for various work environments, and place people in jobs that lead to fulfilling careers. We work hard to build deep relationships with employer partners, and we look forward to meeting with your recruiting team to learn how we can help your company hire great talent.
Legal Services for your employees
Most companies hire attorneys or provide in-house services for H1B and other visas for foreign-born people who come to work for them. Many employees, however, have family immigration needs. IINE offers low-cost, high quality services that many of your employees desperately need. We help people with marriage and fiancé green cards, assist with citizenship applications, and help people seeking to bring other members of their families to the United States. By establishing a formal program to refer your employees to IINE’s legal services program, you help them obtain affordable services, and you partner with a non-profit organization that is providing a broad range of programming to immigrants and refugees.
Building a diverse and inclusive workforce at your company: Suitcase Stories®
Suitcase Stories® is a live storytelling program that empowers immigrants and refugees by giving them a platform to publicly share their stories with other members of the community. IINE organizes large mainstage shows each year as well as storytelling workshops, community showcase events, school presentations and a new podcast. For corporations, we help companies build a more understanding workplace. Our staff will train people in your company to share their immigrant story – whether they are born outside of the United States, a first generation American or someone in a relationship with a person born elsewhere. We can organize shows at your company during the workday, at lunch, after work, or at a special offsite event. The experience of working with our team, learning the skill of storytelling, and sharing a unique personal story with colleagues builds a better and stronger workplace.
Our trained staff works with companies to facilitate opportunities for employees to volunteer in our English classes, coach immigrants for job interviews, and other critical activities. We’re happy to work with you to develop an engagement program that works for your firm.
