The Office Of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) expects good faith outreach efforts pertaining to affirmative action to be expansive to increase the pool of qualified candidates. Outreach has to be external (to reach the wider labor market), and internal (immediate workforce). Proof of outreach must be meticulously maintained. Good faith efforts also encompass training and promotion of the internal workforce. Results of these efforts also need to be documented and stored for three years in case of an OFCCP audit. Federal contractors and sub-contractors are required to set hiring goals for protected veterans (7%) and utilization goal for Individuals with Disabilities (7%) in all job groups. Additionally, they need to set goals under EO 11246 as applicable.
How will America’s Job Exchange (AJE) assist you in accomplishing this task?
AJE has an updated Reporting Portal that includes a self-service reporting tool that provides links to employment offices in all 50 states, office locations, state credentials and account alerts to customers for state credentials updates. The portal is available to AJE customers 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for audit reports, account updates and information on the new regulatory requirements. Additionally, we have launched an Outreach Relationship Management System that we are excited about! The system will have the ability to record the following information:
- Event type
- Date of the outreach event
- Location of the event
- Outreach organization partner (and type) involved in the event
- Outreach organization contact information for the event
- Customer contact information for the event
- Notes related to the event
- Uploaded documents related to the event
- Ratings of the success of the event (given by the customer/employer)
This Outreach Management Tool allows our customers the ability to create reports on the offline outreach activity recorded in the Tool. Customers can filter by date range, city and state, organization type and will also be able to export the report to an Excel or PDF file.
Please contact your Account Manager at America’s Job Exchange for more information or for any questions you may have on our reporting tool (866-923-6284) or fill out this form.
