Oliver Wyman: Refugee Response

Oliver Wyman Recruits Qualified Refugees Arriving in Europe

Oliver Wyman Responds to White House Call-To-Action on Global Refugee Crisis

Oliver Wyman is a partner in the White House call-to-action for private sector engagement on the global refugee crisis. There are more than 65 million displaced people in the world today, the highest number on record since the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) began collecting statistics.

“Oliver Wyman has already hired multiple refugees across Europe fleeing from countries such as Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and we are actively looking to hire more,” said John Romeo, Managing Partner for North America, Oliver Wyman.  “But no one company or government can handle the enormity of this situation alone and we are proud to partner with the White House and other private sector corporations to help bring significant commitments to refugees.”

Oliver Wyman has made the following commitment to assist the global refugee crisis:

  • Pursue efforts to recruit qualified candidates from the refugee populations in Europe into Oliver Wyman.
  • Actively tap into the Oliver Wyman network of non-profit and commercial partners in the education, micro-finance, youth- and adult-literacy, and job-readiness spheres to explore solutions for enhancing entrepreneurial activities and developing job-related skills in the refugee populations.
  • Raise the issue of providing employment with clients and provide a central website where clients can access information on organizations that can help them support refugees.
