Research Reports & Policy Advocacy
WES Global Talent Bridge serves both as a source for original research on skilled immigrant integration and as a portal for relevant work by partners. Recent reports include “Untapped Talent,” an analysis of the economic costs of brain waste, and “Steps to Success,” a study on the factors that help or hinder skilled immigrants in achieving professional success in their new countries.
