Orion Rail – A supporter of ‘ban the box’

Far too often we hear from people who are unable to get past the application part of a recruitment process simply because they have to tick ‘yes’ to the question about convictions.

Ban the Box is a campaign to increase opportunities for people with convictions to compete for jobs.

Orion Rail as part of Orion Group are promoting the campaign as part of the fair access to employment project and to encourage ‘fair chance recruitment’ practices by employers.

Banning the box is one element of fair chance recruitment. We hope ‘Ban the Box’ should be at the heart of changes in employer recruitment practices.

The campaign was launched in the UK in 2013, co-founded by ‘Business in the Community’ and Orion Group remains committed to its implementation across all group companies.
