Deciding to hire ex-offenders might feel brave, but it opens up a vast new talent pool and can dramatically cut reoffending rates — which currently cost the UK £18bn a year.
Hiring people with convictions brings greater diversity and customer engagement – according to Ministry of Justice data, 92% of firms that employ ex-offenders report that it has enhanced their reputation, ultimately leading to more contracts.
Join us for a 90-minute webinar on Tuesday 23 November 2021 (10:00 - 11:30) for first-hand insight and practical advice on the importance of breaking down barriers, changing perceptions, and encouraging a diverse range of candidates to apply and succeed within your organisation.
Hosted by Offploy – a not-for-profit organisation which supports people with criminal convictions into meaningful, mentored, and sustainable employment – speakers include Matthias Stausberg, Group Advocacy Director for Virgin, Rebecca Morgan, head of HR for Johnsons Hotel Linen, and Sally Eley, Foundation Director at City & Guilds Group.
This straight-talking session will explore why it’s important to offer another chance to those with a criminal record and how your organisation might get started – while sharing first-hand experience of Offploy in action.
PLUS, put your questions to Jacob Hill – former prisoner and founder of Offploy – as well as each one of our speakers live on the day.
We look forward to speaking with you on 23 November. If you have any other questions in the meantime, please contact Richard Strauss (email@example.com).
