In the past three years we have had three locations audited by the OFCCP. Two of those audits are closed and one remains open. The open audit included a week-long on site visit. Preparations for the onsite were onerous; and the follow-up items even more so. Without the help of Gaucher Associates our lean HR team would have been brought to a standstill for weeks. We absolutely don’t know what we would have done without their help and guidance.

Though we have yet to face an OFCCP audit of our program, Gaucher Associates positions us to be ready for one. Every year they review with us the prior year AAP results and set up the new year’s plan, taking the time to work with our HR team to understand potential issues.

Gaucher Associates helps us to determine which locations require a separate AAP and how to do that in the most cost-effective way. We really appreciate Gaucher Associates’ efforts in sorting this out as it is a challenge for us to keep on top of these changes every year.
