Use screening questions to automatically disqualify applicants who fail to meet basic minimum qualifications.
Help With Your Affirmative Action Plan
The United States Department of Labor and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission requires businesses to adhere to a number of regulations governing employment practices. For human resources professionals, this means that part of your attention must be focused on protecting workers and job applicants from any form of employer discrimination. Affirmative action is one part of a larger effort aimed at providing opportunities to underrepresented groups spanning race, gender and veteran status, among others.

Keep Your Organization Compliant
ExactHire ATS helps keep your organization in compliance by having applicants digitally complete a voluntary form disclosing affirmative action-related data. Job applicants can voluntarily self-identify various information such as gender, race, veteran status and disability status.
Once the information is submitted, it is kept separate from the rest of the application so that hiring managers can make decisions that are fair to the applicant and smart for the organization. And because the data is stored on a secure server, personal information remains safe at all times.
Easy Outreach and Affirmative Action Reporting
With ExactHire, it’s easy for employers to use online recruitment sources for minorities and women. And by setting up an ad hoc report in the applicant tracking system, you can create accurate, timely reports regarding compliance considerations.
