Share Article

Newton Software and Pinnacle HR Consulting have formed a partnership to provide employers with technically accurate, cost-effective solutions for all of their affirmative action planning needs. Through the partnership, Newton Software will provide customers with access to the affirmative action professionals at Pinnacle who will provide strategic recruitment compliance and affirmative action consulting.

Over the past four years, it has become increasingly crucial for federal contractors to implement an OFCCP-compliant recruitment process - Jeff Baker, Vice President and Partner, Pinnacle HR Consulting

Over the past 10 years, Pinnacle has become the industry leader for affirmative action plan and recruitment compliance consulting. Representing clients in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, Pinnacle provides excellence in client experience as well as the best value proposition. And notably, Pinnacle is the only affirmative action consultancy with an entire practice group dedicated to recruitment compliance.

Newton Software develops industry-leading applicant tracking systems designed for small and medium-sized employers. Launched just four years ago, the Newton ATS was designed by experienced corporate recruiters who understand that employers need a simple, smart and safe way to manage their recruiting web-based programs.

“Over the past four years, it has become increasingly crucial for federal contractors to implement an OFCCP-compliant recruitment process. Having a solid applicant tracking system is a big part of that process - and it's one of the best preventative defenses a company can take against future audits” said Jeff Baker, Vice President and Partner at Pinnacle. "When consulting with clients on their affirmative action requirements, discussing their recruitment technology is a part of every opening conversation. Each time that I've spoken with a company using the Newton ATS, they always seem to rave about the system - and that's unusual in the applicant tracking industry. Then when I learned that Newton Software built their ATS with a distinct appreciation for supporting the regulations of The OFCCP, I knew that a partnership between our two companies made sense - particularly for our respective clients," said Baker.

“Our people speak with employers every day and we know there is a lot of confusion regarding affirmative action planning and OFCCP compliance. And, as former corporate recruiters, we appreciate the importance of running a consistent, compliant recruiting process. Pinnacle is uniquely positioned in the EEO/AAP consulting market with a full-service recruitment compliance consulting practice that will offer significant value to our customers,” said Joel Passen, Head of Marketing and Co-Founder of Newton Software. “Given our focus on helping employers improve recruiting programs, a content partner like Pinnacle is a perfect compliment to our services. We are excited to work with their Vice President of Recruitment Compliance, David Scheffler, as well as Jeff Baker and the rest of the team at Pinnacle," said Passen.

Based in San Francisco, Newton Software is the brainchild of former recruiting professionals that began developing the product in 2004 after becoming frustrated with existing commercial recruitment software. The founders of Newton wanted to leverage the benefits of internet technology to help them provide better service to their clients: they wanted something that would make rolling out, ramping up, managing, and improving hiring programs easier. They wanted something that offered a more collaborative recruiting experience for all users. And they wanted something that was simple and easy-to-use for all users.
