VISANOW Makes Immigration a Viable Business Strategy for Leading EPC Contractor
Lauren Engineers Enjoys Greater Time-Savings and Human Resources Flexibility
Chicago (February 23, 2010) – Partnering with leading global immigration service provider, VISANOW, has allowed Lauren Engineers & Constructors Corporation, an international Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor, to staff key positions with the best candidates from around the globe. This access to the most highly-skilled talent, regardless of their nationality, coupled with an efficient work authorization process has become a competitive advantage and key growth driver for Lauren Engineers.
Previously, lacking process and responsiveness from traditional immigration law firms overtaxed human resources, hindering the ability to hire crucial talent, putting large projects at risk. After several failed attempts of working with various immigration service providers, Levi Taylor, HR Manager at Lauren Engineers, switched to VISANOW in July 2008 because of its patented online immigration platform that streamlines the process. “Switching to VISANOW has freed up about 40 hours of my time every month, giving me the opportunity to approach immigration more strategically,” said Taylor. Lauren Engineers is now able to confidently bid on immigration-dependent jobs and even use immigration as a tool to create strategic business opportunities in new markets.
“Lauren Engineers’ immigration success illustrates that employers are continuing to utilize immigration as a business strategy to hire the best and brightest from around the globe, despite government protectionism arising from the economic recession,” commented VISANOW CEO, Robert Meltzer. “Our streamlined immigration process is now even more important than ever, and makes VISANOW an ideal partner for companies like Lauren Engineers to address their human resource needs during this period of increased government scrutiny and in preparation for the post-recession business world.” Read the full case study (http://www.visanow.com/resources/how-tos/VISANOW_Lauren%20Engineers%20Case%20Study.pdf).
