Public Company Information:
RESTON, Va. & LIMA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services, a division of MAXIMUS, Inc. (NYSE:MMS),and myStaffingPro®, a leader in applicant tracking software, have announced an alliance that enables customers using the myStaffingPro applicant tracking solution to expand their recruiting efforts into non-traditional markets and realize significant cost savings.
This strategic alliance allows myStaffingPro to integrate its applicant tracking software with MAXOutreach™, MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services’ job recruitment and compliance solution, as well as the Company’s Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) screening services. MAXIMUS and myStaffingPro will be introducing the integrated solution as co-exhibitors at the National Retail Federation Annual Convention and Expo in New York City on January 11, 2010.
MAXOutreach links employers and community-based organizations in their mutual effort to assist individuals in need of employment. This proprietary outreach tool casts a wide net across more than 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 such organizations for job-searching resources. Additionally, MAXOutreach helps employers meet hiring requirements for Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP) and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs.
myStaffingPro customers will benefit from new WOTC-screening capabilities, which will help ensure they fully capture tax credits for which they are eligible, based on their current hiring practices. The WOTC is a federal tax credit incentive for companies to hire individuals from target groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment. MAXIMUS was a key contributor to the development of the Federal WOTC Program and has administered tax credits for employers for over two decades.
“We are very excited to be integrating our MAXOutreach and tax credit solutions with the myStaffingPro applicant tracking and recruiting software solution,” said MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services President, Mark S. Andrekovich. “We have identified the perfect ally in myStaffingPro and, together, we are putting the right pieces in place to provide employers with the most unique and cost-effective recruiting resources available.”
“The alliance between myStaffingPro and MAXIMUS was an obvious decision, one that provides our users with tools that truly cut their recruiting costs and maximize WOTC tax credits,” said Bob Schulte, CEO of myStaffingPro. “We are pleased to be joining forces with the leading WOTC provider, MAXIMUS, and we are excited to offer this integration to our clients.”
