Second chance workers are good for business.
Today’s labor market is complicated. Turnover rates—and associated costs—are high, and it’s an ongoing challenge to fill open positions and maintain productivity. It’s costly too with employers spending an average of $10,000 per employee in turnover-related costs.
Kelly 33 offers employers a way to connect with second chance workers who will:
- Show up and keep showing up
- Appreciate the opportunity to work
- Complete the job well, and
- Crush chronic turnover challenges
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to improve their lives.
Hiring second chance workers creates a double bottom line that’s good for talent and employers. The Kelly 33 program is also good for helping organizations strive toward their diversity, equity and inclusion goals.
