In the U.S. today, as many as one in three Americans have a criminal record. Once an individual has a criminal record, they face upwards of 48,000 legal barriers to employment according to the National Employment Law Project.

Though we might not think about it every day, those of us who are leaders in the HR Operations, Talent Acquisition, Recruiting, and People spaces can directly affect recidivism rates in the U.S. Without meaningful employment, individuals are more likely to recommit offenses out of necessity or stress.

Fair Chance Employment is a set of hiring practices that help companies find a pool of qualified talent with a wide range of experiences. By choosing to become a Fair Chance Employer, you are able to positively impact individuals with conviction histories and help to break the cycle of recidivism.

Our panel will cover:

  • Fair Chance Hiring basics
  • How to build a Fair Chance Hiring plan
  • How to interview for skills and attributes
  • How to use individualized assessments to support candidates
  • How to support your fair chance hires
