In 1983, Berkshire began as one of the first companies to establish an automated way to prepare affirmative action plans (AAPs), revolutionizing the AAP process for HR professionals nationwide. Over the years, Berkshire has expanded its scope of services beyond AAPs to meet the evolving needs of HR professionals with training, software, and a range of services to include compensation and DEI services. In 2022, Berkshire joined forces with Resolution Economics. Berkshire’s expertise remains unmatched in the affirmative action space, and with the recent expansion of our compensation and DEI services and our partnership with Resolution Economics, Berkshire will continue to be among the most sought-after providers in the industry.
