Getting Talent Back to Work

National Initiative led by SHRM to end outdated, non-inclusive hiring practices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.

HR Virginia SHRM State Council has signed the pledge for this national initiative and is encouraging all HR professionals in the Commonwealth to do the same and that separately we’ll be encouraging all chapters to sign the pledge by April 1.

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.
