With tens of millions of people in the U.S. with criminal records, companies that successfully implement second-chance hiring practices will have a massive competitive advantage over those that do not.

It also shows why companies utilizing second-chance hiring enjoy a competitive advantage.

Readers will: • Understand what goes into a successful second-chance hire, from the support that will be needed internally to the resources that are available from outside agencies. • Learn how businesses from a variety of industries have instituted successful second-chance hiring programs and how this has positively impacted their culture and bottom line. • Gain practical onboarding and coaching strategies that will help ensure a smooth transition and a productive, happy new employee.
