Hire Second Chancers
How do you beat historically low unemployment rates?
As a business owner, you know recruitment is an ongoing challenge. Sometimes it feels like a merry-go-round. You can invest countless time, energy, and dollars into the hiring process followed by onboarding, training, and guiding the new hire to ramp up to full productivity.
Then – BAM! – the employee quits. Perhaps recruited away by a competitor. Or perhaps jumping from company to company as a shortcut to salary increases. Either way, loyalty is lacking. And you’re back at the starting line.
Here’s a unique social-responsibility recruitment solution…
Discover a hidden resource for new hires during an era of historically low unemployment rates and the uncertainty of legal immigration. As CEO of Acrobat Outsourcing, I uncovered an overlooked – and often forgotten – group of people. I had a great deal of success hiring reformed ex-offenders (Second Chancers) and those who have been left behind: military veterans and people with special needs.
Why should you hire Second Chancers and Left-Behinders?
While running Acrobat Outsourcing, I personally interviewed, vetted, and hired tens of thousands of employees to fulfill organizations’ temporary and permanent job openings. With 18 offices nationwide, my staffing solutions company placed employees at Apple, DropBox, Fairmont, Google, Hyatt, and Marriott as well as elite university systems such as Stanford, UCLA, USC, University of Texas, and UC Berkeley; large hospital systems throughout the US; and concessionaires for major league sports teams and events including multiple Super Bowls and World Series.
Of course, I also handpicked people who would fit into our own company’s culture and would thrive. Through this process, I gained extraordinary insight into recruiting, hiring, firing, and selecting high-potential employees.
I mastered the ability to thoroughly vet candidates, read body language, and carefully interview them. I learned how to ask straightforward questions that would elicit honest, straight-from-the-heart answers.
I saw that many people (not all) truly wanted another chance. They have pride. They have families to support. Reformed ex-offenders (Second Chancers) are done with the streets, drugs, and prison. Military vets and people with special needs (Left-Behinders) simply need someone to believe in them – and take a risk for them.
Hiring this overlooked group is a calculated risk. It must be approached strategically.
