HR Think Tank

Second Chance Employment


Is it time for your organization to revisit its approach to second chance hiring?


Unemployment rates are at historic lows and new state-wide and national legislative initiatives such as Ban the Box are removing important barriers to hiring individuals with criminal records. At this Think Tank we will share our experience, insights, and questions with experienced professionals who can respond to some of the challenges and opportunities of second chance employment. Please join us as we take up this timely and important topic.


Here are some great introductions to the theme from SHRM:


The Nuts and Bolts of Hiring People with Criminal Histories by Mark Feffer


Research: Employers Willing to Overlook a Criminal Record to Hire the Right Person by Kathy Gurchiek


Hiring Ex-Offenders: Learning from Experience by Jerry Goodstein (author Jerry will be at Think Tank!)
