2.   For each such vacancy, the recruitment resource(s) utilized to fill the vacancy (including, if applicable, organizations entitled to notification pursuant to Section 73.2080(c)(1)(ii) of the new EEO Rule, which should be separately identified), identified by name, address, contact person and telephone number;

 

3.   The recruitment source that referred the hiree for each full-time vacancy during the Applicable Period;

 

4.   Data reflecting the total number of persons interviewed for full-time vacancies during the Applicable Period and the total number of interviewees referred by each recruitment source utilized in connection with such vacancies: and

We ensure that all department heads are fully educated on their reporting documentation responsibility. We educate department heads as to anti-discrimination rules and ensure that all departments are hiring in a non-discriminatory fashion. The February 1, 2011 to January 31, 2012 Annual EEO Public File Report was distributed to the station managers during a February 2012 manager's meeting and was discussed by the Business Manager, Steve Anderson.

       Steve Anderson, Business Manager, attended a training seminar sponsored by the Nebraska Broadcasters Association on August 15, 2012 focusing on the EEO process/rules and their implementation by an employer.  This seminar was presented by Lisa Fields of Broadcast One Source.

 

      Each employee of the station has been provided, as part of the employee handbook, the Equal Employment Opportunity Program of KLKN-TV. This Program outlines the continuing policy of KLKN-TV to provide equal opportunity to all individuals without regard to their race, color, religion, age, national origin, or sex in all personnel actions including recruitment, evaluation, selection, promotion, compensation, training and termination. The elements of this Program include responsibility for implementation, policy dissemination, recruitment, training, and promotion.

It is estimated another 10-15 people attended the job fair but did not complete the information sheet. KLKN-TV was involved in a meaningful role with the hosting of the job fair throughout the preparatory process/meetings for the job fair and ending with a follow-up meeting to discuss the positives of the job fair and where improvements can be made. Steve Anderson, Business Manager, was the Chairman of the committee that organized the job fair. Minutes of these meetings are kept in the business office's EEO file. A broadly rotated promotional spot for the job fair ran on KLKN-TV and was also widely promoted by other members of the Lincoln Area Broadcasters group. This group included the 2 major radio groups and 3 television stations in the Lincoln market.  The KLKN-TV booth at the job fair was manned at all times by 2 managers with decision making power for t, he station (Business Manager, News Director, Operations Manager, and Promotions Manager).
