INCREASING WORKFORCE PRODUCTIVITY, CREATIVITY, AND DIVERSITY
Take the Pledge
Nearly 1 in 3 American adults has a criminal record. There are 2.3 million individuals with a New York State criminal conviction.
Moving these individuals into the workforce helps keep New Yorkers safe: Research shows that employment factors strongly in reducing an individual’s risk of criminal behavior after incarceration. Moreover, these potential workers have a range of skills and talents to share with businesses, and are often highly motivated to turn their lives around and reward employers with hard work and company loyalty.
Join others in pledging to utilize the skills and talents of all hard working New Yorkers to serve customers and allow businesses to flourish.
