The Case for Hiring People with Criminal Records

The statistics are staggering: Nearly 1 in 3 adults has something pop on their background check and nearly 12% of the U.S. workforce has a felony. Fair-chance hiring is the future. It enables companies to fill open positions, increase employee retention, and make tangible progress on DE&I goals. Come learn about why and how YOUR company should consider candidates with criminal records for roles in engineering, sales, customer service, product, and more. You’ll hear from leaders at Honest Jobs and Checkr, two fellow startups, who are paving the way to fair-chance hiring at scale.
