Affirmative Action Good Faith Efforts—Understanding the Impact on Your Organization

COLUMBIA, MD—November 27, 2012, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is increasingly reinforcing federal contractors’ obligations to make good faith efforts to meet their affirmative action placement goals. Affirmative action plans (AAPs) must show good faith efforts were realized in advertisement, recruitment, promotions, terminations, and trainings.

Berkshire Associates’ latest white paper, ‘Affirmative Action Good Faith Efforts—the Importance of Being Proactive’ not only discusses the requirements surrounding AAP good faith efforts, but also provides resources and insight on how to effectively meet these standards.

According to one of the authors, compliance expert, Brittany Harris, “Implementing good faith efforts gives your organization the opportunity to put the “action” in your AAP. Such efforts should be embedded in not only your recruitment activity, but other areas of your HR strategies and practices. These efforts will not only keep you compliant, they will also contribute to your branding as an employer of choice committed to EEO and AA.”
