Transdev Pledges to Hire Refugees Through Partnership with TENT

Safety Corner

We recently announced a commitment with Tent Partnership for Refugees (Tent) – an organization whose mission is to mobilize the global business community to improve the lives and livelihoods of more than 36 million refugees who have been forcibly displaced from their home countries. The initiative is part of our workforce development strategy and aligned with our Transdev purpose of serving the common good.

We are among some of the U.S.’s largest employers and best-known brands who, collectively, have made commitments to hire and train tens of thousands of refugees in the United States over the next three years, supporting refugees’ economic and social integration across the country. The United States is currently welcoming refugees from Afghanistan, Ukraine and other crises-stricken countries.

“We’re excited to bring new talent and people into the Transit industry, while helping improve the lives of refugees from around the world,” stated Mark Salisbury, Transdev’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “Transdev is excited to be one of 260 companies to partner with Tent and pledge to hire refugees so they can economically integrate in the U.S. It’s just one more way Transdev is helping serve the common good.”

“The American business community is showing incredible leadership, and I am so proud of the companies, including Transdev standing up for refugees today,” said Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO of Chobani and founder of Tent. “These companies will benefit from welcoming these hard-working, loyal, and resilient individuals – but my hope is that this is only the beginning. As refugee crises start to fade from the headlines, I hope that companies will recognize that hiring refugees is not only the right thing to do, but also the smart thing to do.”
