Roadmap to Success: 5 Steps to Putting Action into your Affirmative Action

Roadmap to Success: Briefing Managers about Affirmative Action Results 

Industry Leaders Thomas H. Nail and co-author Cornelia Gamlem, SPHR present this in-depth two part series to guide your organization in its affirmative action efforts.

The Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program (OFCCP) has increased its emphasis on affirmative action compliance. Compliance will be measured by the extent to which a company identifies problem areas within employment processes and how the identified problem areas are addressed within the affirmative action program to ensure that all individuals have equal access to all employment opportunities.

This series will walk you through the affirmative action planning and preparation processes as well as the evaluation and implementation of your affirmative action program. 


The Roadmap to Success: 5 Steps to Putting Action into your Affirmative Action provides a model for developing an affirmative action program by providing a clearer understanding of the responsibilities and requirements of affirmative action compliance as well as practical guidance toward the execution of a successful affirmative action program.  It explains the distinction between an affirmative action plan and the broader affirmative action program.  Finally, it is a guide through the required elements of affirmative action compliance and assists in the self-evaluation of program compliance.  

The Roadmap to Success: Briefing Managers about Affirmative Action Results assists Human Resource Professionals 1) Understand the purpose and intent of affirmative action as it relates to line managers; 2) Realize the importance of line management responsibility for equal employment opportunity and affirmative action; 3) Design a briefing of the results of the company's affirmative action program for presentation to management staff; and 4) Design a briefing containing periodic progress of accomplishment of affirmative action goals.
