You are an HR Manager for a large sheet metal manufacturing company. One of your largest customers has just secured a major office furniture contract with the federal government. Your customer wants your company to become a subcontractor for the project, making all of the plastic parts required. Even though it would be lucrative, there is uncertainty among your organization’s top officials about whether to join this project, given that the preparation of an affirmative action plan and the formulation of goal achievement requirements will be imposed to correct underutilization.
You have been tasked to prepare a slide presentation (10 slides, not counting the cover slide or the reference list slide). Include speaker notes at the bottom of each slide.
Your presentation needs to address the following:
1. Identify the EEO compliance requirements that impact a federal subcontractor.
2. Classify the important components of an affirmative action plan (expand on the goal-setting process).
3. Determine how affirmative action goals should relate to an organization’s strategic human resources plan.
4. Elucidate on your recommendations to the organization’s top officials about becoming part of this project.
Use at least five sources below plus any applicable background readings to support your discussion.
