Ban the Box
After becoming a Ban the Box employer, Ricoh has followed in the footsteps of other Reducing Reoffending through Employment Network members to open a Digital Training Academy at HMP Onley.
By increasing employment opportunities for people with criminal convictions businesses can tap into a diverse talent pool and help to stop the cycle of reoffending.
Building on their commitment to Ban the Box, international construction and support services group Interserve is supporting young offenders to gain employment on their release from HMP Brinsford through a Facilities Management Academy.
