(Reston, VA and Lima, OH — December 15, 2009) — MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services, a division of MAXIMUS, Inc. (NYSE:MMS),and myStaffingPro®, a leader in applicant tracking software, and have announced a partnership that enables customers using the myStaffingPro applicant tracking solution to expand their recruiting efforts into non-traditional markets and realize significant cost savings. This strategic alliance allows myStaffingPro to integrate their applicant tracking software with MAXOutreach, MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services’ job recruitment and compliance solution, as well as the Company’s Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) screening services.
MAXOutreach links employers and community-based organizations in their mutual effort to assist individuals in need of employment. This proprietary outreach tool casts a wide net across 50,000+ community organizations to help employers uncover hard-to-reach, tax credit-eligible applicants — many of whom may not have Internet access at home and depend on community-based organizations for job-searching resources. Additionally, MAXOutreach helps employers exceed hiring requirements for Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP) and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) programs.
myStaffingPro customers will benefit from new WOTC-screening capabilities, which will help ensure they fully capture tax credits for which they are eligible, based on their current hiring practices. The WOTC credit is a federal hiring incentive for companies to employ targeted groups, including food stamp and Supplemental Social Security Income recipients, veterans, and ex-felons. Currently, millions of dollars in WOTC incentives go uncollected each year, even though employers are hiring from targeted groups designated by the program.
“We are very excited to be integrating our MAXOutreach and tax credit solutions with the myStaffingPro applicant tracking and recruiting software solution,” said MAXIMUS Tax Credit and Employer Services President, Mark S. Andrekovich. “We have identified the perfect partner in myStaffingPro and, together, we are putting the right pieces in place to provide employers with the most unique and cost-effective recruiting resources available.”
“The partnership between myStaffingPro and MAXIMUS was an obvious decision, one that provides our users with tools that truly cut their recruiting costs and maximize WOTC tax credits,” said Bob Schulte, CEO of myStaffingPro. “We are pleased to be joining forces with the leading WOTC provider, MAXIMUS, and we are excited to offer this integration to our clients.”
