See what we learned from employers about immigration, global mobility and more in our sixth annual Immigration Trends Report 

Envoy's 2021 Immigration Trends Report is out now! We asked more than 500 HR professionals and hiring managers what they learned following an unprecedented year for hiring, immigration and global travel.  This year, we also asked about the immigration reforms they'd like to see addressed and their expectations for immigration and mobility in a post-pandemic world.
