Do we have the right tools?
How can you make this a more effective process for your organization?
Defining the Applicant (OFCCP “Internet Applicant” Definition)
1) The individual submits an expression of interest in employment through the Internet or related electronic data technologies;
2) The contractor considers the individual for employment in a particular position;
3) The individual’s expression of interest indicates the individual possesses the basic qualifications for the position; and
4) The individual at no point in the contractor’s selection process prior to receiving an offer of employment from the contractor, removes himself or herself from further consideration or otherwise indicates that he or she is no longer interested in the position.”
An individual must satisfy all 4 of the above criteria to be classified an Internet Applicant.

Home-agent can be a component of a corporate diversity strategy that includes people with disabilities, veterans, older workers and people living in rural areas
Training time and associated “ramp” costs are reduced by 20-30% via use of effective E-learning capabilities.
Utilization of home agents is a “green” initiative and contributes to a reduction in urban congestion and pollution.
