Affirmative Action Plan Implementation – Understanding What's Required

COLUMBIA, MD—October 10, 2012, In today’s competitive marketplace, employers can benefit greatly from making diversity a priority for their organizations. For federal contractors and subcontractors, working to implement their annual affirmative action plans (AAPs) is a step in the right direction.

Berkshire Associates’ latest white paper, `Affirmative Action Plan Implementation—Understanding What’s Required,’ not only discusses the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs’ regulations surrounding implementation, but shares best practices contractors should be using to ensure their AAP is effectively put into action.

According to one of the authors, compliance expert, Misty Glorioso, PHR, “When an organization properly implements its AAP, not only is it protecting itself from liability, it’s also increasing its chances of success. AAP implementation can lead to:
• increased employee satisfaction, commitment, and motivation;
• different perspectives, ideas, and solutions;
• flexibility to respond to a changing customer base; and
• a reduction in legal liability, lawsuits, and grievances.”
