It’s not unusual for companies to advertise that they are an equal opportunity employer. If you want to maintain OFCCP Compliance, you need to be doing the same thing. But how far are you going in order to meet the requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of Labor?Facebook is showing companies exactly what they can be doing. The largest social network in the world has just announced plans that they are hiring a global head of diversity to help expand their recruits and get a large group of different backgrounds in order to help promote creativity.The position will be responsible for not only employee recruitment but also development and retention. Facebook is planning to grow their staff by 44% by fourth quarter of 2013 and their primary focus to do this is diversity.When you are shopping around for new employees for your own company, it’s a good idea to focus on diversity as well. Take a look at your current demographic. If everyone comes from the same general walks of life, you don’t have that much diversity and therefore you can’t expect that much creativity. You should be taking a page out of the Facebook playbook and scaling your diversity at the same rate you are scaling your staff.It’s critical that you stay modern with all of the technology out there for recruiting and hiring. You can use social media to your advantage – including using Facebook to let people know that you are hiring and what they should be doing.Online applications are becoming more popular because it’s easier to track.

When you utilize technology more effectively, you can recruit in certain areas where certain demographics are located. And when you use a tracking system online, you can see exactly what the backgrounds of applicants are to be sure that you are being as diverse as possible.It’s important to maintain OFCCP Compliance.
