Affirmative action definition

Affirmative action is an HR policy which ensures equal employment opportunities and focuses on groups and minorities who tend to suffer from job discrimination. The goal of affirmative action is to form fair access to employment opportunities and to create a qualified workforce regardless of employee's background.

Importance of Affirmative action

Affirmative action policies aim to increase work opportunities for groups of people which may have been neglected by the society, mostly women, minorities and individuals with disabilities. Through action-oriented programs the contractor can find specific practical steps designed to solve this under-utilization.

Studies have shown that when a contractor consistently runs its business by using affirmative action as a management tool, an absence of discrimination takes place in the work environment.
