STAFFING & RECRUITING
Great candidates are everywhere, but understanding how to recruit them effectively is not always obvious. When your company is open and ready to begin hiring individuals with criminal backgrounds, it will be helpful to consider a variety of traditional and nontraditional recruiting methods. Many strong applicants with backgrounds may come to you via new or unfamiliar channels. Fortunately, this process can be navigated with the help of some outside resources.
Partnering with a temp or staffing agency offers a variety of benefits to employers looking to begin their Second Chance hiring with additional support. It is important, however, to find out how the staffing agency approaches applicants with criminal backgrounds. For that reason, a key ingredient in developing a successful relationship with a temp or staffing agency is educating them about your organization, so they can intimately understand your hiring needs and the nature of the candidates you want. Workforce development programs are also tremendous resources for identifying great Second Chance candidates. These programs take many forms in local communities, and also provide a full array of employment and training services to businesses and job seekers of all types, including those with criminal records.
We are an employment agency so we recruit and determine which employees have the right skills to go to specific client companies. Which company is looking for what kind of skills in the employees and we reach in to the community to find the right employees and placed those employees to the client company.
I connect Second chance employers’ two candidates for the jobs by First matching of the skill set of the client. And also the need of the employer. I’m kind of like an intense case manager. I work on their soft skills to provide training And have them succeed in that job.
We don’t hire anybody that just walked into the door. 29% of the people who walked in to all-star got a job with us. That means we are turning away lots of folks. And the people that we have recruited and screened, We are so confident that they are going to be going out there and become great employees that i have a ton of faith in them. That’s how i got here.
I have been working with ex-offenders about 12 and a half years now and i would say that almost everybody i get they have the ability to make that positive change. They just need to push in the right direction. And have some to take that chance its take that opportunity for them.
Work centers in Washington and Oregon Is what our nation would call it our job center or one stop center. So in every location across the country, there are these America centers or one stop centers that provide connections between businesses the demand and our job seekers the supply. So the idea is to bring all the stakeholders to the same table and have these conversations. Our local teams can make decisions that make sense for the community. If a job-order falls from the sky, the business needs a number of workers. And even one person. And they can’t find that person. We have a word for system to be able to help either Find the individual that they’re looking for our train an individual so that they can have What i need.
The benefits of using a staffing agency If you are trying to hire population that may have a background Is the Partnership that you can have with them, and be able to have somebody that as a support who can vet the candidates a little bit. Who has work with that population? Who knows a little bit more of what kinds of needs that they may have. Fears, all those things coming back into the workforce. If you don’t have the resources in house, possibly to spend the time that it takes i think kind of having your feet wet and being able to work with a staffing agency. Again to kinda vet the candidates.
People do change. The employers are out there And we just have to educate the employer’s better. I added up how many employers I have had in the last year and I added up 225 employers that hired my people in the last year. And I bet all 225 employers are happy from the product the product they got.
