Checkr Forward, the first annual conference for leaders and professionals in hiring, safety, and compliance to learn, network, and discuss the challenges of hiring at scale, is a few days away! November 5th will bring together a star-studded cast of speakers who will share their experiences across a variety of topics, from new technologies like artificial intelligence to the changing safety landscape.

Here’s a taste of the sessions and speakers we have lined up: 

1. Scott Wintrip: Mastering High Velocity Hiring

3. The Profound Impact of Employment, A Simulation

Every year, over 600,000 Americans are released from prison into a society that’s not set up for their success.

During this 1.5 hour simulation, you’ll get a chance to see if you can make it through a month of reentry, giving you a new perspective on hiring bias and an untapped talent pool that could change your business.
