What is Business Roundtable

Business Roundtable (BRT) is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy.

U.S. is Far Behind in the Race for Global Talent

One of the key factors that allow U.S. employers to grow their businesses and create new jobs is their ability to recruit and retain talent from other countries.

How well does the current U.S. employment-based immigration system support this goal?  Based on original research and analysis, Business Roundtable found that the United States falls short when compared to other advanced economies.

Realizing America’s full potential to create more high-wage jobs for U.S. workers and greater opportunity for middle-class families should be the nation’s top priority.

America’s business leaders have identified six priorities for action by Congress and the Administration in 2015.

As part of a broad coalition, the Business Roundtable launched Trade Benefits America, an effort to educate on the benefits of trade and U.S. trade agreements and the importance of passing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA). TPA legislation will help provide new economic opportunities for American businesses, farmers, workers and consumers.
