We understand the complexity of today’s compliance environment, and we want our clients to have the power to manage, control, and assess the state of their affirmative action efforts. Using BALANCEhub, our clients can view plan results in a number of interactive charts and graphs, evaluate program performance, securely publish reports and plans to the web, and document Good Faith Efforts (GFEs).
BALANCEhub also provides a unique platform from which to gain insight on an organization’s workforce. Data can be accessed at a high level, or at a more granular level to identify problem areas. At the core, BALANCEhub enables companies to centralize their affirmative action compliance information, making it manageable, organized, and accessible in case of an OFCCP audit. BALANCEhub includes three modules: DASH, SHARE, and REACH. Together, these applications give you access to important data about your workforce, and help you gain greater insight for decision making. Berkshire’s BALANCEaap and Affirmative Action Outsourcing clients receive complimentary access to BALANCEhub. This means you can store affirmative action information, run reports, share plans, and record your good faith efforts as needed at no additional cost.
DASH, the Executive Dashboard feature in BALANCEhub provides a high level overview of AAP results from BALANCEaap. DASH vividly displays plan information using a variety of easy-to-read graphs and metrics. BALANCEaap users get a bird’s eye view of trends, risk areas, and protected group representation at various levels. Users can benefi t from the easy assessment of plan performance, faster decision-making, and drill down capability for further examination when necessary.
DASH also provides customized views for management and staff that only need to see their part of the picture. Users control how they wish to see their data, and view, print, or export reports as needed.
Track your GFEs in accordance with affirmative action regulations using REACH. Document your recruitment and outreach activities, and also 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 REACH can then be pulled into the appropriate AAP in BALANCEaap, Berkshire’s affirmative action software. If you are an outsourcing client, Berkshire can also provide you with services to incorporate your GFEs into your plan.
The most impressive feature by far, and currently unique to REACH, is its automatic AAP “link” feature. REACH can automatically link activities to a plan and merge a company’s GFEs into the plan’s narrative. This feature could prove to be a major convenience to federal contractors.
You can collect and store hiring data, as well as, detailed information on recruiting sources to suppot your organization’s placement goals.
With REACH, you can:
REACH helps your company organize and document your good faith effort activities.
