There are several components of an organization’s Affirmative Action plan (AAP). I will discuss the components that I felt were important and expand upon the goal-setting process or placement goals.

The organization profile is a breakdown of the entire workforce and shows “job title, gender, race, and ethnicity of the unit supervisor (if the unit has a supervisor) and the total number of male and female incumbents” ("Electronic Code of Federal Regulations," 2016, para. 60-2.11).

The strategic HR plan and the Affirmative Action goals have to be revisited and evaluated from time to time.

Further, the HR plan would have to be readjusted or changed when new Affirmative Action goals are established.

In summary, Affirmative Actions are important and law abiding components within certain federal contractor and subcontractor realms. Affirmative Action and strong HRM can help an organization create and maintain a diversified workforce.
