The article discusses research by Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) which found that three-quarters of organisations would consider hiring former offenders if they had the right skills. The research found that only 53 per cent have done so already, which indicates a figure that falls to 34 per cent for the private sector alone. The need to raise awareness among employers about the support available to them is emphasized by CIPD adviser Dianah Worman.
