Alliance Offers One-Stop Recruitment, Tracking, and Compliance Solution
(Lima, OH and Reston, VA – January 7, 2010) – MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services, a division of MAXIMUS, Inc. (NYSE:MMS), and myStaffingPro, a leader in applicant tracking software, have entered into an alliance to create an integrated applicant tracking and compliance solution. The alliance provides customers with a one-stop solution for their recruitment, tracking, and compliance needs. Customers using myStaffingPro applicant tracking system will benefit from the functionality available in MAXIUMS’s Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) screening services, and MAXOutreach™ system.
myStaffingPro customers will gain new WOTC-screening capabilities, which will help ensure they fully capture eligible tax credits based on their current hiring practices. The WOTC credit is a federal tax incentive for companies to hire individuals from target groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment. Currently, millions of dollars in WOTC incentives go uncollected each year, even though employers are hiring from targeted groups designated by the program.
“The alliance between myStaffingPro and MAXIMUS creates a one-of-a-kind product offering that truly cuts recruiting costs and maximizes WOTC tax credits,” said Bob Schulte, CEO of myStaffingPro. “We are pleased to be joining forces with MAXIMUS, and we are excited to introduce our integration at the NRF Convention.”
MAXOutreach links employers and community-based organizations in their mutual effort to assist individuals in need of employment. This proprietary outreach tool casts a wide net across 72,000+ community organizations to help employers uncover hard-to-reach, tax credit-eligible applicants – many of whom may not have Internet access at home and depend on community-based organizations for job-searching resources. Additionally, MAXOutreach helps employers exceed hiring requirements for Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP) and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs.
“With this integration, MAXIMUS and myStaffingPro are taking recruitment and compliance technology to new heights,” said Mark S. Andrekovich, President of MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services. “For the first time, employers have a one-stop solution for job recruitment, applicant tracking, OFCCP compliance assurance, and tax credit screening. The National Retail Federation is the perfect venue to debut the fruits of our alliance, considering that as much as $100 million in WOTC credits have been forecasted for the retail industry.”
