Pledge to Get Talent Back to Work

ASA is an inaugural signatory of the “Getting Talent Back to Work” pledge—part of an effort led by the Society for Human Resource Management to help provide employment opportunities to qualified people with criminal backgrounds. The pledge follows congressional passage of bipartisan criminal justice reform, the “First Step Act,” in December 2018.

To assist companies making the pledge, SHRM developed the Getting Talent Back to Work Tool Kit, which is designed to help businesses apply evidence-based best practices for hiring applicants with a criminal background, understand the legal factors involved, and get practical guidance from industry leaders on recruiting this diverse group of people. ASA member companies are encouraged to join ASA in signing the pledge.
