Second Chance Employment
September 22 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am$49.00
Looking for work after being released from prison may seem like a daunting task, but employers that offer second chances do exist. Getting a former offender successfully reintegrated back in the workforce quickly benefits the individual and our society as a whole.
This is a serious topic for employers and for the future workforce. Hiring the best person for the job, regardless of one’s background needs to be the priority. Having a criminal records does not need to create a barrier to being hired. When individuals have jobs, it reduces the recidivism rate and strengthens our communities. Just because our employment rate is high does not mean we can forget about all of our populations looking for work and opportunities to contribute.
Our conversation will focus on:
- what is being done now (with participants sharing their examples);
- what has worked and where are the pitfalls;
- what are the areas and steps HR needs to consider; and
- what resources are available to employers and job seekers.
- Space is limited, and registration is on a “first come, first served” basis.
- Payment for registration must be received one week before the scheduled program date.
- Cancellations also must be received one week before the program date to receive a full refund.
- There are no refunds for “no-shows”.
- If you do not receive confirmation of your registration or a reminder notice for the session, your registration has not been received.
