RESTON, Va. & MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services, a division of MAXIMUS, Inc., and Jobs2Web Inc., a Web 2.0 interactive recruiting solutions provider, have announced an alliance enabling Jobs2Web customers to leverage MAXOutreach™, a community-based compliance solution provided by MAXIMUS, as a means to achieve Office of Federal Contracts Compliance Program (OFCCP) requirements.

MAXOutreach links employers and community-based organizations in their mutual efforts to assist individuals in need of employment. This proprietary outreach tool casts a wide net across 72,000+ community organizations to help employers uncover hard-to-reach, tax credit-eligible applicants – many of whom may not have Internet access at home and depend on community-based organizations for job-searching resources.

Additionally, MAXOutreach helps employers exceed hiring requirements for Office of Federal Contract Compliance and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs. It connects employers with state job service agencies, as well as organizations serving veterans and individuals with disabilities, helping them to fulfill their OFCCP relationship requirements, while providing requisite tracking and reporting as an on-demand feature.

With the integration of MAXOutreach and Jobs2Web’s job distribution system, Jobs2Web customers can now track and capture compliance-based hiring activity with ease and efficiency. The newly added compliance feature significantly reduces the time employers spend preparing reports, enables employers to submit OFCCP-required recruiting data to federal authorities quickly, and improves their preparation for potential audits.

“Our alliance with Jobs2Web will help the many companies, both large and small, that struggle with OFCCP recruiting and reporting requirements,” said MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services President, Mark S. Andrekovich. “Together, we are putting the right pieces in place to provide businesses with the most sophisticated tracking and reporting tools for recruiting top-quality talent and achieving OFCCP compliance.”

Doug Berg, Chief of Recruiting for Jobs2Web, commented, “While ‘easy’ and ‘effortless’ are words not commonly associated with OFCCP compliance, the Jobs2Web alliance with MAXIMUS is proving otherwise. Our joint solution allows employers to simplify their outreach strategies and satisfy compliance requirements, all while broadening their access to a diverse pool of job candidates.”
