50% of companies in Peru have Venezuelan workers, according to the Survey Challenges and Opportunities for Migration in the Peruvian Business Sector, developed by Aptitus and the NGO Acción contra el Hambre.
Currently, more than 859,000 Venezuelan citizens reside in Peru, and more than 90% are of working age; that is, 773,000 people, said Alejandra Fonseca, manager of Aptitus.
Despite this large number of migrants, the survey revealed that 48.2% of entrepreneurs are unaware of the formal hiring procedures of foreign citizens.
According to the report, the most relevant aspects of hiring a Venezuelan are that they are professionals with a competitive work profile, followed by their motivation and ability to learn.
In addition, the difference in the salary conditions they ask for also influences.
“On the other hand, 32.4% of the entrepreneurs surveyed who have worked with Venezuelan professionals, consider that the experience has been rewarding”, according to an article published by Gestión.
