2011 MD SHRM State Conference to Feature Federal Contractor & Subcontractor Compliance

Baltimore, MD—On October 3-4, 2011, Nicole Yeldell, SPHR, Training Manager at Berkshire Associates, a human resource consulting and technology firm that assists companies in building their ideal, balanced workforce, will help attendees at the MD SHRM State Conference understand the latest Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs’ (OFCCP) updates, along with what it means to be a federal contractor, in her presentations: “Recent Regulatory and Compliance Updates All HR Professionals Must Know,” and “Affirmative Action 101.”

HR professionals should be aware of what it means to be a federal contractor and subcontractor, what makes up a compliant affirmative action plan, and how recent regulatory and compliance changes can significantly impact their organizations. Over the past two years, OFCCP has seen its budget and staff grow over 30 percent. It’s using these resources to ensure federal contractors and subcontractors are in compliance. Nicole’s informative and timely sessions will address affirmative action basics, along with the considerable impact the latest compliance updates have—and how companies can protect themselves.
