Engagement: In partnership with the Manufacturing Institute, Envoy began collaborating with Union Pacific to build a second chance hiring initiative to expand candidate pools to be more inclusive of those with criminal records.
Results: After a successful pilot program in Houston, which included assessing and adapting Union Pacific’s existing hiring policies and practices and developing local community partnerships, Union Pacific is expanding its impact by bringing this model to new markets across the United States.
American Family Insurance
Engagement: Envoy partnered with American Family Insurance (AmFam) in 2020 to build on the company’s strong commitment to Fair Chance hiring and help set company-wide standards of excellence. AmFam is one of the largest providers of insurance in the United States, employing over 11,000 individuals nationwide.
Results : Envoy worked closely with AmFam in three primary areas: updating policies and practices, building candidate pipelines, and communicating AmFam’s Fair Chance work internally. Updates included revisions to the application and background check process, pipeline expansion through mapping key markets for recruitment, community partnership development, and communications tools and language for internal and external use.
