Kairos management team members Nick Paul and Will Waymel were selected as speakers for the 2021 National Industry Liaison Group (NILG) Conference to be held this August 1-4 in Nashville, TN. The NILG Conference is the ‘must attend’ annual conference for professionals in affirmative action, equal employment opportunity, and diversity & inclusion. Kairos will present the following workshops.

AAP – History, Laws, & First Data Steps

Nicolas Paul

This workshop provides an overview of the federal affirmative action laws and required AAP contents. Attendees will learn about the self-ID process and forms required for pre- and post- offer surveys as well as how to use data to evaluate outreach and for required recordkeeping. Best practices for common issues and challenges associated with data will be reviewed. Attendees will learn how to assess the integrity of HRIS and ATS data and how to reconcile data.

AAP Reports: Metrics and Analytics

Nicolas Paul (Co-presenting)

Learn to map job titles to census codes, identify feeder pools, assign weights, and determine labor areas in this workshop. If results don’t look reasonable, what are the options? This workshop covers the impact of job group creation on goals, disparities, and compensation. Instructions are provided to help you perform analysis on under-utilization, data collection, outreach, comparing applicant data to external availability and identification of trends. How to use AAP metrics for your Diversity & Inclusion initiatives will also be reviewed.

Drilling Down into Disparities

Will Waymel

Selection disparities are identified. Now what? This workshop provides practical steps when indicators are identified in the Impact Ratio Analysis Reports. In addition to learning how to examine the underlying data to ensure results can be trusted for a step analysis, attendees will learn the effect of dispositions on applicant data and how OFCCP conducts disparity analyses and calculates backpay. This session will include selection disparities in hiring, promotions, and terminations.

Compensation and Audits

Will Waymel (Co-presenting the Audit portion of the presentation)

What happens after your AAP is submitted? How do you deal with potential adverse findings? The workshop will give a brief outline of the steps in an audit, as well as some strategies to anticipate requests and respond to the agency in a way that should improve chances of successful audit outcomes. Federal Contractors are compelled to annually assess compensation practices. How do you start? Attendees will learn the practical side of compensation analytics and ways to identify and deal with disparities.
