    Fair chance hiring is the practice of hiring individuals with criminal records.  Estimates indicate that nearly one in three Americans has a criminal record – approximately 70 million people. Many have fulfilled their justice system obligation and are ready to start a career.

    In this webinar, learn how the practice of hiring individuals with a criminal record taps into a massive source of talent that many businesses can benefit from.  Our presenters will explore those benefits and discuss the success stories of fair chance candidates.

    Studies show that second chance hires are highly loyal, productive and have lower turnover rates. Tapping into this labor pool also allows employers to advance their diversity and inclusion efforts, and some programs offer tax incentives to employers as well.


    NOTE: This event will be recorded and available for playback for 45 days post-event.
