It's a sticky area, if you believe the prevailing
FUD. I am not
a specialist in OFCCP issues and highly recommend that you seek advice from
someone you can sue. Here's what I've been able to decipher from the
OFCCP website, a range of
conversations and some simple thinking:
- OFCCP stands for the Office of Federal
Contract Compliance Programs. It is is
part of the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment Standards Administration.
OFCCP is responsible for ensuring that employers doing business with the
Federal government comply with the laws and regulations requiring
nondiscrimination and affirmative action in employment.

Want to Move up Quickly? Work for a Smaller Company
Employees at larger companies are twice as likely to face a waiting period of one to two years before being eligible to apply for other positions.
At most companies, climbing the in-house employment ladder is encouraged, but, according to a recent survey on internal job posting policies, those interested in climbing quickly should work for smaller companies. The survey of 423 companies, conducted by the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp – formerly HRI), revealed that 30% of organizations with more than 10,000 employees require workers to have one to two years on the job before they can apply for an internal posting. This compares with 16% and 17%, respectively, for companies with 2,500-4,999 and 500-2,499 employees.
"While it clearly is harder to move up in a larger company than it is in a smaller company, it makes sense for all companies to allow relative newcomers to apply for internal postings," says Jay Jamrog, Senior VP of Research of i4cp. "Anecdotal evidence suggests that once workers know there are opportunities to take on new jobs, they become more motivated and engaged. This sends a strong message and winds up being an excellent retention tool. Large or small, in today's environment, where the ‘war for talent' is becoming more fierce, allowing all employees the opportunity for immediate advancement is critical."
Vovici Analysis Shows Survey Completions Increase Over 140 Percent
New findings indicate steady increase in online survey completion rates
Vovici, the leading provider of Enterprise Feedback Management (EFM), online survey software tools and marketing research services, announced new findings showing that online survey completions have steadily increased by 144 percent over the past 14 months. Vovici analyzed data collected from over five million surveys conducted by thousands of Vovici customers across all markets using its shared-hosted environment. Findings show that completion rates have increased from 30 percent in January 2006 to 66 percent in March 2007.
"Our analysis indicates that although companies are deploying online surveys that are longer and more complex, customers and employees are increasingly willing to take the time to complete them," said Dean Wiltse, chief executive officer of Vovici. "This trend suggests that people want to share feedback and feel that online surveys are a good use of their time."
Additional findings indicate that companies are extending more invitations to their survey communities by 63 percent. In March 2007, the average survey was sent to 514 recipients compared to 316 recipients in January 2006.
"We are seeing companies of all sizes and across all markets realize the value of conducting surveys and consequently, are integrating them into their everyday processes," stated Wiltse. "Because of higher completion rates and better reach to communities, surveys are yielding more feedback than ever before, making them a fundamental component of their customer experience management and business strategies."
Vovici's survey software solution, EFM Continuum, has become the favorite of Fortune 500 testers in survey creation, campaign creation and mailing list development. For additional product information, visit Vovici Online Survey Software.
