Employers Interested in Hiring

In December 2020, the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI) hosted a special virtual preview of the Louisiana Department of Corrections’ new Reentry Workforce Portal, created by ATLO. LABI is extremely excited about this opportunity to help employers connect with potential employees and reduce recidivism by helping incarcerated individuals find jobs and stability after their release. You can re-watch the webinar on demand by clicking HERE.

Additionally, for more information and to sign-up as an employer within the portal, click HERE. If you have any questions, you can also reach out to ATLO directly at info@atlosoftware.com.

For more information regarding training curriculums and next steps on how to hire someone after they release from prison please email the Office of Reentry, Assistant Secretary Rhett Covington at Rhett.Covington@LA.GOV
