What is an applicant flow log? 

An applicant flow log is a compilation of job application information via an applicant tracking system or a spreadsheet. 

Do all companies need to have an applicant flow log? 

No, not all companies are required to have one. An applicant flow log is only required for government agencies and federal contractors. 

To find out more information, it is best to visit the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Office of Federal Contracts Compliance Programs (OFCCP) websites.

What is the purpose of an applicant flow log?

The data contained in the applicant flow log is used to generate a yearly report for the U.S. federal government. The applicant flow log is essential in conducting statistical analysis to make sure that the organization is recruiting fairly and inclusively, not discriminating against candidates. By studying the applicant flow log statistics, the federal government can identify any impediment to inclusive recruitment and thereby prevent any adverse impact. 

What kind of information is included in an applicant flow log?

Federal agencies and contractors also record the result of each application. You can visit the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission website for more guidance.
