Recruiting and Hiring

Federal contractors and businesses implementing affirmative action plans (AAP) have a critical focus to create an equal opportunity environment and a workplace that is free of discrimination. When you begin with a concentrated documentation effort during the recruiting process it’s easier to maintain it throughout the entire employee experience.

The BirdDogHR Recruitment and Applicant Tracking System (ATS) can help you track your Good Faith Recruiting Efforts and ensure that your commitment to equal opportunity is communicated to candidates. The BirdDogHR ATS features will also help you report on AAP, IWD and VEVRAA compliance and pre-populate your voluntary surveys with specific language, including your EOE disclaimer. This built-in functionality gives your swamped HR department the relief they need when things are at their busiest, while providing you with confidence that you’re making a solid hire and not skipping any mandatory steps along the way. Your consistent and automated recruiting and hiring process can also help ensure that you won’t be facing costly fines or time delays.
