Billionaire Charles Koch and a coalition of business groups on Sunday announced a push to encourage companies to hire workers with criminal records, following the recent passage of a federal prison and sentencing reform law.
The influential network aligned with Koch has teamed up with the Society of Human Resources Management, the trade group for corporate HR directors, on the new initiative.
Johnny Taylor, the group’s president, said the US Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Association and the National Restaurant Association have joined the effort, which includes a tool-kit that helps businesses navigate how to hire former inmates.
The announcement came during a three-day retreat for conservative donors who make up Koch’s influential policy and political network.
“If all of us joined together, think of what a difference we can make,” Koch, the 83-year-old head of a Kansas-based industrial conglomerate told a ballroom packed with some 700 donors and nonprofit activists on the second day of his network’s winter summit.
