Have way more open jobs than candidates? Maybe it’s time to get creative! Nearly 700,000 people are released from prison each year and are locked out of the job market. High unemployment and recidivism rates for returning citizens suggest that the first step in beating the odds is helping these men and women find gainful and steady employment. 89% of people that recidivate don’t have a job at the time they re-arrest. 1 in 3 Nebraskans go back to prison once they get out within 3 years. Unemployment in Nebraska is at an all-time low. Is your business ready to get creative to meet workforce needs and offer a second-chance? Before you say “No way that would work for our company” – Join Pam Bourne and Jeremy Bouman as they discuss a workforce readiness program in Nebraska called RISE that is preparing returning citizens for employment both pre-release and post-release. You will also learn about federal incentives your business can access through second chance hiring including tax credits, insurance bonds and wage reimbursement. Finally, you will also learn about the EEOC Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records and best practices for considering criminal record information when making employment decisions. Presenter Jeremy Bouman – RISE Pam Bourne – Woods & Aitken LLP Workshop Panel A panel consisting of panelists from a variety of organizations will follow the presentation.
