FAIR CHANCE FORWARD
Fair Chance Hiring Practices
Fair Chance Hiring; Anti-Racism Trainings & Workshops
The misconceptions that fuel our understanding of people with criminal histories definitively cause more harm than good. Fair Chance Hiring Practices offer leverage by increasing employee retention rate and avoiding discrimination litigation. Our workshops and virtual sessions provide an unparalleled blend of professionalism and personality by experts in their respective fields. We believe in our services because of the satisfaction our clients express afterward. By opening doors to new conversations, we create the potential for transformative learning experiences in our hearts and our minds. Providing equal access to all leads to a better workplace with access to benefits, resources, and support for Fair Chance (or Second Chance) employers.
Strategizing for the future with Fair Chance Hiring Practices is essential for human resources professionals to recruit a diverse workforce and protect applicants' rights. Our work developed with pure intentions over time and with the primary beneficiary in mind, the 1 in 3 Americans of working age impacted by a criminal record. We believe that workplaces will become more resilient and innovative when they incorporate returning citizens in their hiring decisions. Nationwide, 35 states and over 150 cities and counties have adopted what is widely known as "ban the box" laws so that employers consider a job candidate's qualifications first - without the stigma of a conviction or arrest record.
Navigating complicated workplace decisions need collaborative solutions to ensure that all employees' needs are equally satisfied. With our help, you could increase cost efficiency by cutting down on legal fees and support your local community by contributing to its economic vitality at the same time.
“By expanding the hiring pool to include people with criminal histories, companies can improve their bottom line, reduce recidivism and incarceration costs, avoid discriminatory practices, and increase public safety.”
