Thank you for your submission.

In this hyper-competitive economy where companies struggle to identify strong candidates at all levels of their operations, those who tap into the qualified justice-impacted candidate pool will have the advantage. With 1 in 3 adult Americans having a criminal record, companies are missing out on over 70 million people* who don’t have fair access to living-wage work due to outdated hiring practices.

This is where fair chance hiring comes in. Fair chance hiring is built on the premise that everyone, regardless of their background, has the right to be fairly assessed for a role they are qualified for. These practices help businesses tap into a new talent pool and create opportunities for everyone to win.
