Gulfstream professionals represent a great diversity of experiences, languages, lifestyles, beliefs and cultural backgrounds. Our many perspectives, combined with our desire to be the best, contribute to Gulfstream’s continued success.

Our diversity recruiting initiative is a key element of our overall recruiting. It’s also an integral part of our daily business. To help achieve a diverse workforce, we also partner with many diversity-focused organizations: the Society of Women Engineers, the National Society of Black Engineers, Women in Aviation and the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers.

We make diversity a priority. Our diversity and inclusion efforts are supported by a comprehensive strategy encompassing four areas of emphasis: leadership accountability, education, process integration, and recruitment and retention. All of our open positions are posted on a range of diversity-focused Web sites to ensure that our applicant pool reflects today's dynamic workforce.

Immigration

The Gulfstream Immigration Program provides employees with comprehensive global immigration services, regardless of the country of origin or the destination of their assignment. These services include assistance in obtaining US working visas, Green Cards, international work permits, permanent residency or citizenship.

Many of our employees require immigration assistance to work and live in a foreign country. To accommodate these employees, we provide a full-time Immigration Specialist who works with a team of immigration attorneys to identify and process all necessary documents. The Immigration Specialist also provides timely status updates and serves as the primary contact for all immigration questions and concerns.

US Immigration Services

Understanding the adjudication process, how adjudicators review applications and the processing times all have an important effect on planning our Immigration Services. In order to assist our employees with these processes, we host a Web-based system that provides immediate access to case status, interactive communication tools, determination of visa requirements and next steps in the process.

Global Visa Services

We assist with the international movement of our employees and their families. To prepare them for long-term assignments, Gulfstream offers assistance in obtaining the appropriate work visa or work permit, as well as cultural-awareness training prior to traveling. These services are available to returning expatriates as well. We also work with experienced immigration attorneys around the globe who can quickly determine the process and visa requirements.

Cultural Transition

To prepare employees for assignments in foreign countries, Gulfstream also offers families cultural awareness training prior to their move. These services also are available for returning expatriates.
