Getting Talent Back to Work

    Getting Talent Back to Work

    SHRM Columbus Area Chapter supports the SHRM Getting Talent Back to Work Initiative.

    Nearly 700,000 people are released from prison each year and are locked out of the job market. Those who have served their time should not be “re-sentenced” by employers, especially when businesses are experiencing a human capital crisis.

    Join business leaders & pledge to consider all qualified candidates.

    The Getting Talent Back to Work initiative is led by SHRM, in partnership with Koch Industries, to end outdated, non-inclusive hiring practices. In response to the First Step Act becoming law, the movement is the next step to getting those with criminal histories a fair chance at employment.
