Labor shortage? Supply chain chaos? Businesses around the nation face workforce shortages and often fail to retain the people they hire. Across the nation, there are more job openings than people applying. Meanwhile, millions of formerly incarcerated Americans who have served their time are struggling to find stable employment upon reentry to their communities. This takes a toll on Florida families and our economy.

It’s time to bridge the gaps and create job opportunities for dependable and engaged employees.

Business owners and hiring managers will learn about resources and incentives of second chance hiring through federal tax credits, free bonding programs, on-the-job training funding opportunities, and other employer resources as you connect and engage with public agencies and non-profits already making successful reentry a reality in Florida.

Supporting Florida businesses, reducing recidivism, lowering taxpayer costs, and making communities safer are all possible through second-chance hiring.

Please RSVP for complimentary bites and refreshments to attend this important conversation on the impact Florida businesses and second-chance hiring can make on our economy, our justice system, and the public safety of our families and communities.
