In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I’m joined not just by Erin Teter, SVP of Human Resources, and Lydia Buurma, HR Operations Manager, of LINQ, a K12 tech company that provides states districts and schools with cloud-based solutions for administration, finance, and nutrition.
It’s valuable for early-stage startups to have some examples of how startups can build an immigration program, that’s why I invited them to share their HR expertise with us today. They share some things to consider when developing immigration strategies and policies for your company, some HR common mistakes and best practices, as well as the importance of building a culture that creates a safe space for employees in terms of immigration considerations.
