Berkshire Expert to Give Presentation at 2009 NILG Conference & Exposition

One Goal—Two Departments: How to Win the Compliance Match-up.

On July 30, 2009, Beth Ronnenburg, SPHR, of Berkshire Associates, a human resources consulting and technology firm that assists companies in building the ideal, balanced workforce, will show attendees how to get out of the boxing ring and back into the office in her presentation, “One Goal—Two Departments: How to Win the Compliance Match-up.”

Most companies have two distinct departments: Affirmative Action (AA) and Recruiting. However, during an audit, the AA department will be the one defending their position with the OFCCP. This is why it’s important for the AA Officer to work with recruiting to ensure compliance requirements, such as the Internet Applicant definition, are met.

This lively session will share workplace examples of fellow federal contractors, describing how they maintained and reviewed the proper data to comply with staffing and AA needs. In addition, attendees will review how their AAP data can be used to verify the process defined on paper is the same as what is actually occurring. Attendees will leave with real life solutions to many of the issues surrounding compliance with the Internet Applicant definition.
