The Ukrainian refugee crisis is impacting remote work trends. So, travel and remote recruitment agencies are standing up to support Ukrainian refugees from crypto-payments to fast-tracking recruiting in new countries.
After the first Russian attack, Ukrainian refugees passed one million people. The crisis is already impacting remote work trends. Now, remote work platforms worldwide are working to support Ukrainians fleeing away. And remote recruitment agencies partner with airlines and accommodation companies to provide support.
How Remote Companies Are Responding To The Ukrainian Attack And Its Impact On Remote Work Trends
For example, Remote.com evacuated its employees out of the country. Now, the company is supporting Ukrainian refugees to receive payments abroad. For example, banks like Mastercard, Visa, and Swift have increased sanctions in Russia. And it uses international payment banks to ensure free exchange for refugees. In addition, Remote.com has an ongoing initiative for refugees. So, it’s collaborating with governments to speed up visa application processes.
Moreover, the European Union granted Ukrainians residence permits, ensuring access to education and the labor market. And the UK government released the humanitarian sponsorship pathway. It is a new visa sponsor route to allow British businesses to bring Ukrainians to the UK.
Further, the global talent mobility platform Topia launched new dashboards to show the location of their employees. As the Ukrainian refugee crisis impacts global dynamics, the company aims to provide information to support staff worldwide with taxes and visas.
Finally, several travel companies support Ukrainians. For example, French rail operator SNCF offers free rail travel to Ukrainians and Wizz Air 100,000 free tickets to refugees.
The Ukrainian refugees’ crisis impacts remote work trends. As companies and governments mobilize, the consequences of the attack become more visible in different contexts.
