With historically low unemployment, HR professionals are having to go beyond traditional sources, means, and partners to find entry and new talent. Organizations and agencies exist to advocate for groups that have often encountered challenges in (re)entering the workforce and work with employers to educate them on the unique characteristics of their group, prepare the workplace for successful entry, and vet and coach those who are ready for work. This event will be a panel discussion including organizations and agencies representing several of these alternative approaches including:
Second Chance Citizens
Career Tech schools
Job Readiness nonprofits
-Meet agencies that assist with sourcing and advocating for overlooked segments for entry talent
-Understand what needs to be done in the workplace to attract and retain these individuals
-Consider roles in your organization that may be suited to these individuals
-Understand how to adjust company culture to be inclusive of these segments and individuals
