Why use candidate stories?
Protect your business
If you operate in an area that has adopted ban-the-box laws, there are specific regulations about how to handle criminal records in the decision process. Candidate Stories fits seamlessly into the process and is a solid first step to help ensure compliance for your company.
Expand your hiring pool
Roughly one-third of Americans have a criminal record. Hiring policies that exclude people with records from employment often lead employers to overlook massive pools of qualified talent. Candidate Stories can help you source a larger prospect pool.
Increase diversity and inclusion
Blanket bans on hiring people with criminal charges can disproportionately affect racial and ethnic minorities, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Candidate Stories is a valuable tool for companies committed to building a more diverse and equitable workforce.
Give others a fair chance
The fair chance hiring movement is growing quickly, and many values-based companies believe that a criminal record should not mean a life sentence of unemployment or underemployment. Candidate Stories puts that belief into action, helping thousands of candidates get hired every year.
