We can prepare specialized Plans such as Functional Affirmative Action Plans (FAAPs) instead of traditional location-based Plans for clients requesting this service. If requested, we can provide guidance to contractors that need assistance in navigating the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program's (OFCCP's) approval process.
Whether developing an Affirmative Action Program for the first time, or transitioning plan development outsource service, Gerstco can complete AAP development to meet business objectives and achieve contract compliance. Gerstco's AAP Development process segments projects into four phases: project planning, data gathering, AAP development and AAP Completion and Publication.
Project Managers schedule, ensure timeliness work with AAP developers and act as a primary liaison between company contacts and the Gerstco Team.
We deliver Affirmative Action Plans tailored to client requirements. Deliverable Plans are reviewed by Senior Consultants to ensure accuracy and compliance readiness. Clients may elect to receive Plans in soft (electronic) or hard copy formats.
Gerstco's 'electronic' version of an AAP can be delivered in PDF format, on a CD, or uploaded to our website and downloaded by our clients. Delivery is secure and instantaneous.
There are many benefits to receiving an eAAP copy, including more secure transmission, cost-effective distribution to other geographies, minimizing storage requirements, ease of archiving, and electronic submission to OFCCP in a Compliance evaluation.
After completing the Affirmative Action Plan, we will include a customized presentation suitable for Executives, Managers, and Human Resources employees, regarding company performance to AAP goals. Discussion topics include: workforce and industry comparisons; performance to AAP Goals, Specialized Organizational AAP views and AAP obligations to managers.
We are committed to deliver and communicate our client's Affirmative Action Plans via web conferencing or on-site at client offices. Client meetings provide understanding of workforce changes and issues; this can be a dialog where individuals ask questions and share insights and experience in AAP implementation.
Gerstco Senior Consultants lead this meeting and cover the following information: (a) a detailed orientation to the AAP plan structure; (b) an assessment of the AAP 'compliance evaluation readiness;' (c) AAP goal performance, and (d) suggested remedies and strategies as appropriate.
We encourage clients to contact us at any time during their AAP year. We make every effort to respond to clients on the same business day, or a soon as practical.
