San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/02/2014 --SmartRecruiters, the company that empowers the new way of hiring, today announced a new partnership with Equality Magazines that gives hiring managers access to four new job boards through the SmartRecruiters platform, including Hispanic-Today, Women in Business & Industry, The Black Perspective and Veterans Enterprise. The addition of these job boards gives all SmartRecruiters customers the ability to reach a wider spectrum of demographics that contribute to stronger and more innovative workforces, while maintaining DOL and OFCCP compliance and meeting Good Faith Efforts for minority community outreach.

“The goal of our job boards is to advance diversity throughout America’s workforce, connecting candidates from all backgrounds and experiences with companies seeking to hire from within a specific minority talent pool or a job seeker’s own community,” said Mark Cohen, VP of Business Development for Equality Magazines. “Partnering with SmartRecruiters is a great step forward in that direction, enabling us to reach the 70,000 and counting businesses nationwide that use SmartRecruiters to find and hire great people.”
