Help 30M people facing barriers get hired
Bias and barriers make it harder for millions of people to find and keep good jobs. In the U.S., the unemployment rate among job seekers with a criminal record is 5x the national average.Prison Policy Initiative In many countries around the world, unemployment rates for people with a disability are more than double that of people with no disability.United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs
At Indeed, we’re on a mission to level the playing field. So millions of candidates see their opportunities expand, and employers see their talent pools grow exponentially.
Our approach to helping
people facing barriers
Indeed is helping 30M people facing barriers get hired by improving the job search experience and increasing access to opportunity. We are building products that promote fair and equitable hiring, partnering with organizations around the world that share our mission, and providing key resources for those facing barriers ― such as no college degree or bias due to age, ethnicity, disability, race, veteran status, or criminal record. We seek to deeply understand the experiences of job seekers facing barriers on our platform, allowing us to develop solutions that improve job seeker outcomes.
We recognize the impact a job has on an individual, their families, our communities, and the global workforce, and work to help all people achieve economic security through employment.
Now more than ever, businesses need great talent but are struggling to find it. We believe a commitment to equitable hiring can change that — because when you open doors to candidates left behind, you start screening in untapped talent. Which helps teams gain new strengths. Which benefits the bottom line.
We’re on our own journey with equitable hiring and are continuously evaluating and redesigning our hiring processes with a lens of inclusion. We’re adopting best practices as we learn – and are committed to driving change across fair chance hiring, accessibility, skills based hiring, and economic security.
We’ve launched several key initiatives to help people facing barriers get hired, while inspiring employers to join us in this important work.
