Speaker: Daniel Stinson | President, Jobrise

For the last several decades, most businesses in America have enacted blanket policies preventing the hiring of people with marks on their criminal history. However in 2020, with the national unemployment rate near 3% and many industries facing labor shortages in the hundreds of thousands, businesses must begin to look at under utilized talent pools.
Now is the time to reconsider “the way we’ve always done it”. Extensive research clearly shows that people with marks on their criminal background are no more likely to commit crimes on the job than someone without a record. In addition, the research shows that these candidates have longer tenures and are more productive while on the job.

  • Learn how to receive access to federal and state incentive programs when hiring underserved groups
  • Review the business case for hiring men and women with criminal backgrounds
