Join Right On Crime, Mississippi Department of Corrections, and the City of Greenwood for The Dollars & Sense of Second Chance Hiring: an employer-focused ReEntry engagement forum.
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. This takes a toll on Mississippi 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 northern Mississippi.
Supporting Mississippi businesses, reducing recidivism, lowering taxpayer costs, and making communities safer are all possible through second-chance hiring.
Please RSVP for a complimentary breakfast and your free invite to this important conversation on the impact Mississippi businesses and second-chance hiring can make on our economy, our justice system, and the public safety of our families and communities.
