Good Faith Efforts Tracker

Another way to ensure you remain compliant throughout the year is to ensure you track your good faith efforts—by using balanceREACH, a good faith efforts tracker. You can easily document your recruitment and outreach activities, and store listing sources that target specific groups. As your HR recruiters or staff members conduct outreach efforts, they can track and document activity in one central database. When it comes time to do your AAP, the activities and sources tracked in balanceREACH can then be pulled into the appropriate affirmative action plan in balanceAAP.


Plan Review Service

As a value-added service to balanceAAP customers, we offer a plan review service. Customers can submit their plans to undergo a thorough review by our expert consultants. After the review has been completed, the consultant will present the recommendations to the client and demonstrate how to make the changes in the software.

In performing this service, Berkshire’s experts will apply our technical knowledge and experience with developing affirmative action plans to provide a quality check for the plan. However, since the purpose of this service is to help users learn the software, we will not make any changes to the client data unless requested.


The following are some of the checks included in the review:

  • Check reports required by 41 CFR 60-2 to make sure all are complete and in the proper format.
  • Review narratives to ensure correct statistics and numbers have been inserted, all company-specific information (e.g. Policy Signer name and title) appears properly, “insert report here” statements have been removed, etc.
  • Check errors and file consistency tables and provide a report of any issues remaining and how they impact the plan.
  • Review job group sizes and provide a list of possible groups to combine or split based on group size.
  • Verify that non-sample reasonable recruitment areas are assigned for all job groups in availability settings, and that they account for annotated employees.
  • Provide recommendations for any job titles that are mapped to general census codes.
  • Check feeder pools in internal availability for any job groups with feeder jobs from higher job groups.
  • Check factor weightings to ensure weight is placed appropriately based on job and feeder group size.
  • Review the utilization analysis and recommend the utilization rule that will show the company in the best light.
