The CIPD is concerned that employers are missing out on a pool of talent,following the release of the Personnel Today and Refugee Council research. CIPD chief economist John Philpott urged employers to consider employingrefugees and asylum-seekers to fill skills gaps. He said, “This survey says to the profession that there is an importantand untapped resource out there.” He believes HR professionals should adopt the Refugee Council’s code ofpractice on the employment of refugees -Êonly 40 per cent of employers actuallyuse the Refugee Council’s code. “HR needs to develop a much clearer response with regard to assessingthe qualifications of refugees,” Philpott said. “Government policy needs to change and there definitely needs to besome sort of official database of refugees looking for work. It would giveemployers much better access to their skills and qualifications.” The groundbreaking research sends out important messages to government,employers and refugee organisations, claims Patrick Wintour, director of theEmployability Forum. He said, “The Home Secretary will publish a White Paper early next yearwhich will include proposals on refugee integration and citizenship – I hope weshall see an effective strategy for training and employment.” last_img read more
