Diversity Outreach to Find Applicants

Attracting and retaining a diverse workforce is of paramount importance to all businesses. It is also essential for federal contractors who must comply with the affirmative action mandate of the OFCCP. The rationale is that employees must reflect the diversity of the communities in which a business operates.

Posting a job on various diversity job boards is insufficient to reach and attract diverse candidates – especially minorities, disabled, transitioning veterans and other underrepresented groups. Such job seekers often rely on guidance of career counselors instead of jumping from one job boards to another. One to one coaching and referrals are better suited for them to identify appropriate career paths.

Thousands of career centers operated by public and private sectors assist such job seekers identify and find their calling. These organizations range from state run workforce centers to minority support organizations, educational campuses and many more. They employ experienced placement specialists, local veteran employment representatives (LVER), disabled veteran outreach program (DVOP) specialists who are invaluable sources of support and assistance to job seekers.

These career centers are also an equally valuable resource for employers to reach and find applicants. They not only help employers find great talent, but they also help develop close relationships with local communities. The career counselors often become an extension of a company’s recruiting team – a ‘feet in the street’ with direct contact of the local workforce. Best of all, their services are free for the employers.

Most internal recruiting teams, however, do not have the time and resources to proactively engage in a full-scale diversity outreach program.  It is especially difficult for those employers who operate nationwide in multiple cities and states. To assist organizations to reap the full potential of diversity recruitment JOBfindah offers comprehensive, multifaceted and customizable solutions – solutions that deliver results.
