SOLVE LABOR CHALLENGES: Second Chance Hiring – the Untapped Talent Pool Webinar

June 7, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm



Every employer in America is facing the threat of a labor shortage of historic proportions. 

With 11 million job openings and some 6 million job-seekers this challenge is here to stay. But solutions exist and those companies that embrace new approaches to talent acquisition will gain a significant competitive advantage.

Some of the best opportunities can be found among the tens of millions of American workers who have been overlooked because of a criminal record.  Done right, this is not about “lowering standards” but identifying who among this population can be loyal and engaged team members.

Join IMEC and Jeff Korzenik, one of the nation’s leading experts on “second chance” employment, as he shares the lessons learned from pioneering business leaders across the country.  The Chief Investment Strategist for Fifth Third Bank, Korzenik is the author of the groundbreaking book, ‘Untapped Talent’ in which he makes the case that hiring people with criminal records is business, not charity, but requires a specific model to ensure success.
