TMP Worldwide and Hirepurpose Announce Strategic Partnership to Support New OFCCP Mandate

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2014) - TMP Worldwide, a global, tech-enabled talent acquisition company, and Hirepurpose are joining forces to help employers attract and retain transitioning military veterans and comply with new regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).

Through this strategic partnership, Hirepurpose becomes a key part of TMP Worldwide's diversity recruitment offerings to TMP's clients, fulfilling their demand for skilled military veterans by providing access to thousands of transitioning talented service members via Hirepurpose's network.

Launched in January of this year, Hirepurpose offers a free service for transitioning military veterans to find a career when they enter the civilian workforce. Hirepurpose employs a state-of-the-art career assessment metric, the Birkman, which tells veterans which careers may be the best fit based on their interests and soft skills. This, in addition to thousands of jobs from dozens of the top companies in America, helps transitioning military veterans explore new industries and provides direct connections with leading employers.

"We are delighted about our strategic partnership with Hirepurpose," said Michelle Abbey, president and CEO of TMP Worldwide. "TMP's clients are looking for ways to attract, engage and hire qualified military talent in an effective manner, directly from bases and support the new OFCCP guidelines. They are an important partner to help us reach these savvy individuals for our clients." 

Mark Prins, vice president, Military Programs for TMP Worldwide added, "Transitioning Service Members have incredible skills and experience, but translating those skills can be a challenge. TMP's military recruiting expertise, now supported through our partnership with Hirepurpose, will help our clients bridge that communications gap through skills translation and on-base programs."

With access to more than 30 military installations and more than 10,000 transitioning military veterans, TMP Worldwide delivers enhanced diversity offerings to its client base through its alliance with Hirepurpose. As partners, they have already assisted premier clients including MetLife and Wells Fargo. Hirepurpose and TMP Worldwide will provide strategic reporting and direction to help clients navigate the new OFCCP regulations.

"Hirepurpose is honored to have TMP Worldwide as a strategic partner. Our companies have the same mission to help our clients build a comprehensive strategy to recruit and retain new military talent into their organizations," said Zachary Iscol, Hirepurpose's founder and CEO. "With the expertise TMP has in building recruitment solutions and the Hirepurpose job-matching technology for Veterans, we believe we can really help our clients recruit talented and professional military veterans into their ranks."
