San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 18, 2006
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) recently issued a directive requiring any employer doing business with the Federal government to comply with new definitions of an Internet applicant. Since Federal contractors are prime landing spots for transitioning and former military personnel due to active security clearances and their training/experience, The Destiny Group has created technology to meet the OFCCP requirements.
The Destiny Group is the first military-specific site to offer this proprietary technology, just in time for the expiration of the 90-day grace period for contractors who have not yet complied with the new ruling. The functionality consists of masking applicants’ identities so that employers may select individuals based solely on meeting specific qualifications. Additionally, the system will store searches and results for a two year period, and provide proof that the employer has requested the race/gender/ethnicity status of applicants they are considering, all with ‘one click’ functionality.
“We did not want our veterans to be excluded from consideration by any contractor required to meet this directive,” states Bill Gaul, President/CEO of The Destiny Group. “Although the ruling requires strenuous record keeping and complicated methodologies promoting EEO for Internet applicants, we rose to the challenge to develop easy-to-use functionality proprietary to The Destiny Group.”
The module also produces reports that are beneficial to any corporation interested in hiring metrics, and has been designed as an optional level of service for those employers either required to comply or interested in the reporting mechanisms.
“Any federal contractor wishing to hire transitioning and former military personnel should now include this niche without wondering how they will comply with the new OFCCP regulation,” Gaul adds. “It’s a simple decision to add this functionality immediately for any company wishing to avoid costly EEO litigation and potential fines if audited by the OFCCP going forward.”
Check out this short video to see how the overall system works.
