Calculate Availability

Things to Consider to Calculate Accurate Availability Percentages

Recorded:   July 2020


The heart of an affirmative action plan is the incumbency vs. estimated availability calculations that form the basis of placement goals.

Join Berkshire for a deep dive into the “estimated availability” calculations used in AAPs. Senior Consultant Katie Johnson will lead a discussion of external and internal availability, and properly weighting the two.

Calculating availability percentages that reflect where and how you recruit is key to setting accurate placement goals in affirmative action plans. This webinar will focus on establishing availability settings in your affirmative action plans.

We will discuss:

  • the important things to consider when using zip codes to calculate reasonable recruitment areas, including removing outliers and considering remote workers.
  • internal availability, including the pros and cons of using promotion data to establish feeder positions.
  • weighting internal versus external availability by using historical data to guide decisions about factor weight selections.

You’ll walk away with concrete ideas and advice to help with your affirmative action plan. Don’t miss this informative session!
