Why Recruit Formerly-Incarcerated Individuals?

Wix Site Image 1.png

Unlock a Massive Talent Pool

With over 1 in 3 Americans having something on their criminal record, and 20 million having a felony conviction, recruiting formerly-incarcerated individuals provides employers access to a massive pool of potential talent.

Improved Retention and Productivity

Numerous studies have shown that fair-chance hires tend to stay longer at their jobs than employees with no criminal record, while being just as (if not more) productive. As an employer, this means better retention and higher productivity from your staff.

Promote Diversity and Equity

Our criminal legal system disproportionately impacts marginalized individuals and communities. Fair-chance hiring through Honest Jobs is a tangible way to move the needle on DEI commitments, providing employment opportunities to people of color, women, veterans, and LGBTQ+ individuals who have been impacted by mass incarceration.

Employer Testimonial

Employer Testimonial

Absolutely would recommend, and often do recommend Honest Jobs to other companies...your willingness to work with each company individually creates flexibility and agility in the program. I normally don’t add this final comment unless pressed, but I also highlight your fair prices. The reason I don’t is that companies need to “choose” Honest Jobs because of your performance and product delivered.

We started our Fair Chance (Creating Second Chances) program, and less than two months lat

Wasserstrom has been using Honest Jobs for about 4 months. We have hired several candidates from this platform that are still with the company today! We are all about second chances and I personally have experienced that these candidates are working hard and showing up every day. Thank you Honest Jobs for all you do and for helping us staff Wasserstrom.
