While background checks have been used for decades in the hiring process, they can reduce access to meaningful work opportunities when not done fairly. That’s where fair chance employment makes a difference. Fair chance hiring is a set of hiring practices that helps companies become more inclusive and diverse – and ultimately reach better business outcomes. Join host Michelle Yoshihara, Manager of Talent Acquisition at Greenhouse, and Ken Oliver, Director of Business Development at CROP Organization, Thedo Butler, Candidate Experience Representative II at Checkr, and Lauren Bell, Fair Chance Program Manager at Checkr, for their perspectives on how to reduce hiring bias and create opportunities for those reentering the workforce.
