Adecco group personnel have partaken in the simulation and sent the following statement.
“The majority of decision makers crafting policy and practice regarding refugees have little or no personal experience of the daily reality faced by the 22.5 million people around the world whose lives they will impact. The Refugee Run and Day in the Life of a Refugee give a live taste of this experience, and provide an emotional anchor. Creating a personal connection with decision-makers is a crucial step in unleashing the untapped potential of refugees, to the job market and to society. As outlined in the our recent white paper on Labor Market Integration of Refugees, to ignore this potential is to leave value on the table, for individuals, their families, employers and society.”
We in Crossroads applaud the white paper they produced to coincide with Refugee Day, 2017. Take a look!
