Employers that have banned the box

More than 110 employers have signed up to Ban the Box, covering about 800,000 roles. Find out who those companies are, why Ban the Box is important to them and how they manage their application processes.

Over 11 million people in the UK have a criminal record, yet three quarters of employers admit to discriminating against applications with a criminal conviction. Employing ex-offenders gives companies access to a diverse pool of talent and brings down the £15 billion a year cost of reoffending for businesses, taxpayers and communities.
Ban the Box calls on UK employers to give ex-offenders a fair chance to compete for jobs by removing the tick box from application forms and asking about criminal convictions later in the recruitment process.
