Free ASA Webinar Next Week—Become a Second-Chance Employer

Most employers say that workers with criminal records perform just as well as, or better than, other employees. Find out how changing your hiring practices to stop excluding people with criminal records can give those candidates a second chance at employment—and help your company address its workforce needs—during the ASA webinar “Second-Chance Hiring: Creating Opportunities for Candidates,” presented by the ASA industrial section and office–administrative sections. It takes place Thursday, Sept. 9, 3–4 p.m. Eastern time.

All ASA webinars are free for ASA members, and most qualify for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit
