WELCOMING REFUGEES AT OLIVER WYMAN
In 2015, we started our deliberate efforts to offer refugees either short-term job security or a whole new career pathway. Today, we continue to recruit qualified candidates from refugee populations around the world. The insights these individuals give us into the challenges refugees face is truly humbling and strengthens our resolve to support more people displaced from their homes due to war, persecution, and disaster.
The life-changing circumstances in which refugees find themselves are incomprehensible to most of us. At Oliver Wyman, we provide dignity and opportunity through employment and hope this can contribute in some small way to rebuilding stability and wellbeing after such trauma; and through our social impact work we look to support relevant charities and organizations.Nick Studer, CEO of Oliver Wyman
WHAT WE DO
When working to support refugees, we focus on three aims. To recruit qualified candidates from refugee populations; to support refugee’s entrepreneurial ambitions; and to champion refugee support programs among our clients.
We are watching thousands flee danger around the world. While situations and solutions are always complex, we want to do our part by recruiting qualified candidates from refugee populations.Scott McDonald, Former CEO of Oliver Wyman, Founder of Refugee Hiring Initiative (2015)
