For Recruiting and Hiring the Long-Term Unemployed Businesses succeed when their communities thrive. We recognize the benefits to our businesses, our economy, and our country of taking advantage of the talent, experience and skills of all Americans, including the long-term unemployed. Yet studies have shown that long-term unemployed job applicants are frequently overlooked and sometimes excluded from job opportunities—even when they may have identical resumes and skills to other candidates. We are committed to inclusive hiring practices and pledge to remove barriers that may prevent qualified long-term unemployed job seekers from applying or being fully considered for jobs at our companies by adopting or building on the following practices:

1. Ensuring that advertising does not discourage or discriminate against unemployed individuals. 2. Reviewing screens or procedures that we use in our recruiting and hiring processes so they do not intentionally or inadvertently disadvantage individuals from being considered for a job based solely on their unemployment status. 3. Reviewing current recruiting practices to ensure that we cast a broad net and encourage all qualified candidates to consider applying, including the long-term unemployed, by taking steps that may include: •

Publicizing our commitment that qualified unemployed individuals will not be disadvantaged solely on their unemployment status on our website, in application materials, or in other places where it can be seen by potential applicants;

Interviewing or otherwise considering qualified long-term unemployed individuals;

Training our hiring teams and recruiters to focus on the bona fide occupational requirements and leadership requirements for a given role and not just on an applicant’s current or recent employment status;

Engaging with local and regional entities in order to reach broad segments of the population with relevant skills and experience

4. Sharing best practices – including success we have achieved with hiring the long-term unemployed in our own company – within our organization and across our supply chain, with staffing firms, our employer associations and the broader business community.
