The article discusses the reaction of employers to the new immigration system for skilled migrants in Great Britain. The new rules are intended to be more objective and transparent than the old work permit system. Sarah Buttler of the immigration consultancy Sarah Buttler Associates, says organisations are confused because they did not know anything about the system. She adds that for organisations with thousands of employees, it is hard to identify these workers, and then build things into their human resources software systems to track them.
