We believe people with disabilities have been an underserved part of the job seeking community. There are many talented individuals looking for employment, and many companies looking for a good fit for their organizations.
Hanover, MD (PRWEB) December 14, 2012
Allegis Group reached an agreement to acquire GettingHired.com today. Since its founding in 2008, GettingHired.com has become a trusted and reliable brand that helps connect talented job seekers with disabilities to employers across the U.S.
GettingHired.com provides an online portal offering RightMatch technology to help match individual qualifications to specific job requirements, helping employers find the right candidates and job seekers find the right jobs. The company also provides ADA/EEOC/OFCCP compliance reporting as well as educational opportunities for hiring managers and employers around diversity hiring practices and applicable regulations for people with disabilities.
Despite continued high unemployment in the U.S., according to the Department of Labor there are 3.8 million unfilled jobs. There are 11.9 million job seekers with disabilities in the US, according to the Census Bureau.
“We believe people with disabilities have been an underserved part of the job seeking community. There are many talented individuals looking for employment, and many companies looking for a good fit for their organizations. This acquisition reflects our commitment to helping connect this often underserved segment of the population with good job opportunities. It also helps us meet the needs of our clients, who are seeking to better understand and serve this population,” said Michael McSally, Allegis Group’s Vice President, Enterprise Operations.
GettingHired.com will be a new business unit within the Allegis Group family of companies. The company will continue to offer its services to job seekers, employers, service providers, universities and workforce development groups.
