This transition from late adolescence to adulthood, is extending in length due to changing economic, technological and societal uncertainties. During this critical period, you assess who you are and what you want to do. You can now think in abstract terms, look at reality from many...
  • Applicants
    by Stephanie Meyers - October 20, 2017
    Applicant disposition codes are one factor that can potentially “make or break” Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) data. As a best practice, we recommend having detailed disposition codes that include two pieces of information for each candidate – the step and status. The “step” is the “stage” in which an applicant fell out of during your hiring process, such as: “Phone Screen” “First Interview” “Passed to Hiring Ma...
  • Protecting the privacy of employees
    by Brian Bulger - October 20, 2017
    Oh oh, EEOC has just asked you for a list of names and telephone numbers for a large group of your employees. Why? The usual answer is because EEOC wants to interview at least some of them to see if they have evidence supporting the claims in a discrimination charge filed by another employee. The number is usually large, so the employer has difficulty figuring out who might have talked to the Agency and possibly retaliat...
  • Job Interview Prep - What Have You Got to Lose?
    by Georgia Adamson - October 20, 2017
    Job interview preparation is critical - if you hope to have a positive outcome for interviews. And why else would you be pursuing interviews? Very few people in this world, from entry-level to senior executive, can afford to blow off interview preparation as if they’re somehow “above” it and don’t need to pay attention to it. I’ve never met anyone who could legitimately make that claim–sm...
  • National Disability Awareness Month
    by Carla Irwin - October 20, 2017
    Lately, my client roster is filling up with new federal contractors and I have been focused on getting them up to speed on all their new requirements. We focus on the elements of an AAP, recordkeeping, self-ID forms, posters, etc. When we are in the midst of making sure we have dotted every “i” and crossed every “t”, sometimes we lose sight of the bigger picture. Are we working towards creating an inclusive workforce th...

    Why I Hired a Workforce Others Overlooked Topic: Disability For 16 years, I led the Logistics Division of Walgreens that included more than 10,000 employees and 17 distribution centers across the country.

  • Protected Veteran
    by Bill Osterndorf - October 20, 2017
    In my last article for the The OFCCP Digest, I wrote about the changing perceptions of race, ethnicity, and gender and how these changes may affect regulatory compliance. For federal contractors and subcontractors, there are two remaining classes that are protected under the federal affirmative action laws: certain classes of veterans and individuals with disabilities. While changes affecting these classes may not...
  • Disabled Workers
    by Randy Lewis - October 20, 2017
    For 16 years, I led the Logistics Division of Walgreens that included more than 10,000 employees and 17 distribution centers across the country. I am also the father of two daughters and a 28-year-old son with autism. As might be expected, I am more proud of the latter than any business success I’ve enjoyed during my career. Living with Austin gave me an uncensored, unadulterated view of some of the difficulties people...

    by Dr. Maynard Brusman - October 19, 2017
    How a leader responds to adversity reveals how effective that leader is. Reactions to setbacks or crises not only test leadership character, but define it.
