    • FOCUS ON BASIC QUALIFICATIONS Creates a standard for which all candidatescompared against Protects against unintentional discrimination insourcing Reduces risk in an OFCCP audit Reduces recordkeeping obligations
    • DISPOSITION REASONS Use to define applicant pool Who was considered Who met basic qualifications Use to limit applicant pool Who did not meet basic qualifications Who withdrew from the process
    • CONNECTED SUCCESSFUL TRAINING Interconnect the Big 3RecruitmentefficienciesUse of technologyRecruitmentcompliance
    • CONNECTED SUCCESSFUL TRAINING What to do Clearly outline what must be tracked Why Compliance and metric reasons behind the need totrack How Tie together the process and technology

    •  Evaluate how your team uses currently: Set yourbenchmark Consider increase in future need/use Put best practices into place to meetrecordkeeping obligations and protect yourdefinition of an applicant
    • EVERGREEN AND PIPELINE REQUISITIONS Can be of great benefit to the recruitment team One of the most complex recruitment processes The way ATS’s naturally report out for AAPs Can create situations where applicant pools areduplicated many times over Dramatically increasing the applicant pool Increasing chance of statistical significance
    • EVERGREEN AND PIPELINE REQUISITIONS Invest in mapping out a compliant process Consideration of your ATS – how reporting works What is needed – continual candidate generation,multiple hires for same position, same role at varyinglocations…all are created differently Custom reporting created to appropriately limityour applicants for AAP production Training is critical Self-audit process to keep on track
    • PRESCREENING & ASSESSMENTS Any technology that ranks, stacks, or scorescandidates = you considered them Many companies apply these at the first step toall candidates Skill assessments (tests) Anything you can pass or fail Hot area for OFCCP Risk for disparate impact
    • PRESCREENING QUESTIONS Screening on basic qualifications is the mostcompliant Be careful of ranking tools, such as ACE in Taleo The use of required and “asset” in thescreening tools can be difficult• Know how the tool “thinks” to avoidlosing qualified talent• Ex: Position requires a BA, applicant selectsMBA and is rejected

    • DISPOSITION CODES How are yours? Too many Too few for defense Not used to limit applicant pool Not well defined Inconsistently applied Recruiters have their “favorite” codes
    • DISPOSITION CODES - ACTION Audit at leastquarterly: If used at all Used in the rightstages Used to documentwithdraws Basic Quals knocked-out Clear and concise bystage Breaks-down to 5 maingroups: Doesn’t meet BasicQualifications Candidate notinterested Company is notinterested Candidate declinedoffer HiredAudit Update
