CC Consulting, a leading business and management consulting firm in the Northeast today announced the addition of a new Affirmative Action Plan Development Service.
Companies with 50 or more employees may be required to have a written Affirmative Action plan (AAP). Furthermore, the Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) requires the complex and time-consuming review and updating of the AAPs on an annual basis. "This is something that companies realize they need to prepare," stated Celia Couture, president. "But most often this responsibility rests with the Human Resource Department (if one exists) which is already overburdened with important day-to-day operations and strategic matters. Because this process is so intensive and they have many other pressing priorities it often moves to the bottom of the pile."
CC Consulting simplifies this overwhelming and, somewhat daunting, annual obligation by partnering with the client to review data, conduct complex statistical analyses, create required reports and write the narrative portion of the Affirmative Action Plan.
By working closely with HR and leveraging years of experience writing Affirmative Action Plans, CC Consulting is able to help clients understand how the plans fit into their internal reporting structures. At the end of the process the company has a summary that can be presented to management allowing them to meet the government obligation and ensuring it is integrated with the company's diversity and training program.
"Done well this is not just a compliant plan, it is a working document that can be used to support other areas of the business," said Couture. "We help companies make Affirmative Action an integral part of their strategic and operational plans."
