Americans strongly support equity at work.
Millions of capable, qualified people are ready and willing to work. Yet, many face significant barriers to employment. It’s time companies tap into these talent pools. Americans expect them to.

Second Chance Talent
78 million American adults—nearly 33% of our working-age population—have a criminal history. Most have a non-violent or minor drug offense, such as a marijuana conviction, on their record that prevents them from finding work, costing the U.S. economy nearly $80 billion a year.
We—and most Americans—believe that these job seekers deserve a second chance. Our Kelly 33 program finds and hires these great candidates to improve your bottom line and theirs at the same time.
Innovation happens when we surround ourselves with people who think differently. But for far too long, the workplace has not recognized the competitive advantage that neurodiverse talent— including people with autism, dyslexia and ADHD—bring to the table. Americans expect companies to change and engage this talent community.
Two out of three American veterans are underemployed—even though they have valuable, market-ready technical and leadership skills.
Employers who provide our nation’s veterans with meaningful civilian career opportunities will reap the rewards of the skills they contribute to companies and society. And Americans expect companies to do so.
Our ability to find top ex-military candidates is unmatched.
Early- and Late-Career Talent
Companies that value the experience of both younger and older workers and invest in their upskilling, reskilling, and training will not only fill open positions, but also benefit from the diversity of perspectives and experiences that an intergenerational workforce affords.
Unfortunately, age-based discrimination and biases continue to shut out skilled talent from opportunities.
