On November 23rd we welcomed Michael Jahr, Senior Vice President at the Badger Institute. As an experienced communications strategist, Michael uses storytelling and networking to build movements, inform public opinion and improve lives.
Today’s economic climate presents very real challenges for employers seeking reliable workers. Michael discusses why consideration should be given to a group of employees who are often left out of the labor force but would greatly benefit from stable employment - those with a criminal record. Michael also addresses Wisconsin’s criminal justice system, who is being released from prison, the benefits of hiring individuals with a criminal record and share testimonials from employers already engaged in hiring people with criminal records.
