REST – Your experience with employing refugees and migrants

REST (Refugee Employment Support and Training)  is a European project aiming at enhancing competences in enterprises and organisations to employ and to successfully interact with refugees.

At this stage we would like to gather experience with and ideas on possible barriers for employing refugees. For this purpose we have set up a multilingual survey that won’t take you more than 5 minutes. Please find the survey here.
