The “Hire One” campaign is meant to encourage employers to be the key to providing a second chance to returning citizens by offering employment opportunities to qualified applicants.
We hope this campaign will encourage a dialogue about concerns employers may have when considering hiring someone with a record, as well as show them there are several benefits and incentives to support them. In the weeks and months ahead, countless community partners will be having several conversations with employers and asking them to take a chance and start by hiring one individual and see where it can lead.
Let us work together to ease employer concerns, provide support, and build a workforce for the future.
