NEW ORLEANS, LA, Jun. 28, 2004 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX)
Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Conference — Accolo, Inc. today announced the expansion of its core Recruitment Process Outsourcing services to include complete Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) data capture and reporting. The new EEO reporting module covers all aspects of the government-mandated requirements — from documenting efforts to increase candidate diversity to accurately capturing applicant data at every step of the recruitment process. This functionality is a core piece of Accolo’s end-to-end recruitment outsourcing services, and is included in the standard service and fees.
“This is one of the most significant shifts in the recruiting process in over 40 years. We can now provide instant compliance, tracking and reporting with the flip of a switch,” says John Younger, CEO of Accolo. “Too many companies ignore the government regulations until something goes wrong, and it takes a six-figure consulting bill to get things straight. We are the only firm that provides complete compliance as part of our core recruiting service.”
EEO represents a collection of legal and social policies stating that members of U.S. society should have equal access to and treatment in employment. Managers and supervisors must be familiar with EEO polices. Human Resources practices have to be consistent with EEO laws and regulations and managers need to maximize all human resource efforts in trying to achieve organizational goals.
Capturing EEO data, either electronically or manually, in order to provide true compliance with the law requires dedicated systems. These systems are either custom, in-house solutions or third-party reporting packages. Both necessitate tremendous resources in time, effort and expense for integration, training and administration. Because any data capture is only as good as its input, the possibility of incomplete or erroneous data looms in the event of having to prove compliance with the law.
As the recent regulations regarding EEO and affirmative action take center stage, the inclusion of Accolo’s EEO reporting module ensures complete and error-free data capture and tracking. Companies now achieve instant compliance, without the need for other software, systems or human resources such as applicant tracking systems or human resources audit firms.
Accolo is a pioneer in the Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) industry. The Company uses a patent-pending combination of technology, method and social networking to deliver high-quality candidates that are pre-screened and pre-interviewed based on the hiring manager’s specific needs.

Accolo will be exhibiting at the 56th annual Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) conference and exposition in New Orleans through Tuesday at the Ernest N. Morical Convention Center, Booth #1451.
