Read Time2 Minute, 27 Second

Circa is pleased to announce the launch of Circa AAP Powered by Affirmity, an intuitive, easy-to-use solution for preparing 100% technically compliant, audit-ready AAPs, simplifying development by automating the process and minimizing risks. Circa has partnered with Affirmity, the leader in optimizing Affirmative Action Programs for more than 45 years, to continue our mission of helping companies develop a more diverse and inclusive workforce through innovative, technology solutions. 

For a federal contractor with fewer than 5,000 employees, generating a compliant Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) can put a strain on HR teams. According to the OFCCP, it can take an average of 193.6 labor hours for companies to develop, maintain, and perform annual updates on their AAPsNot only is an AAP a requirement for companies with 50 or more employees that perform work on federal government contracts valued at $50,000 or more, it is an invaluable tool to ensuring employees are not discriminated against.

HackerRank, the developer skills company, today announced the launch of the Virtual Onsite Experience to make remote technical interviews seamless. These features add to the HackerRank Remote Hiring Solution for end-to-end developer skills-based hiring.

Throughout 2020, remote interviews via HackerRank’s platform increased by 370% compared to 2019. As most U.S. companies embrace long-term hybrid work and others go permanently remote, they need to bring the sophistication of their onsite interview processes to a virtual setting. Virtual interviews are the present and future for many companies, but they create several challenges for privacy, productivity and continuity.

The Virtual Onsite Experience eliminates the complications of multiple remote interview sessions and elevates the user experience for everyone involved. With Virtual Onsite Experience, a single link is created across the interview panel for clear logistics. The interview begins with a virtual lobby. Candidates can arrive early to relax and prepare, and the interview panel can ensure privacy and seamless hand-offs. The Virtual Onsite Experience also provides resiliency features like leave and rejoin that make it easier to recover from network glitches and accidental clicks. Integrated interviewer aides, including scorecards, question prompts and whiteboards, reduce prep time and foster a better candidate experience.
