Every year, over 600,000 people leave state and federal prisons to return to their communities and the workforce. In spite of having done their time and putting in the effort to be a positive benefactor to society, so many face formidable challenges as they navigate the rebuilding of their lives.

When someone has a conviction history, their job application is met with greater scrutiny and bias. They’re less likely to have employment. Lacking employment, they can be pushed to commit or recommit offenses out of necessity or stress. But having a criminal record presents a unique challenge where they are often immediately ruled out for job opportunities even if they are qualified because of their criminal record.

Join Circa & Checkr as we go over what fair chance hiring is and the benefits that it can provide for your organization and society. Evaluating your own hiring practices for fairness is critical and building out your own fair chance hiring plan can open new and valuable talent pools as well as improve workplace culture to ensure qualified candidates are not being passed up.
