So, in America there has been an interest in how Europe can balance generous immigration with generous welfare systems while being global leaders in the tech-based economy at the same time. The american perspective seem quite surprised that it is possible to combine these factors together. To us, it is quite clear that the three can interrelate in a positive way if immigration is harnessed in the right way. Particularly if you take in at least a medium term perspective and look at the society as a whole. Not just the fiscal balance of any one specific year. However, even if we do not agree with the author’s perspective in all parts it was still a pleasure to receive Cnet and the article does a good job in highlighting a number of on-going and laudable initiatives, including Sync Accelerator, in the Nordic region. Cnet is among the 200 most visited websites globally, as of 2015 so of course we are very happy for this feature. Thanks Laura.
This article will hopefully help to spread awareness in Swedish industry that it is both possible and relatively easy to employ asylum seekers, even before they receive a coordination number from SKV. Both Sana and Safinaz now walk straight into full-time employment now with wages at the same level as that of Swedish programmers with the same seniority.
Sana’s success story attracted great attention. Immigration in media is often and very unfairly associated with a narrative of troubles, problems, system-collapse etc. Therefore great to see how Sana’s story became one of Metro.se most popular articles this week! We wish Sana all the best of luck and a big thank you to our client Big Spin!
Proud of the recognition in the expat community. The Local – What a great outlet you are!
