OutSolve Acquires The Van Zant Resource Group’s Affirmative Action Practice, Expanding Its Role as a Complete Compliance Solution Provider

Press Release from OutSolve

Acquisition Follows Other Growth-Related Initiatives by OutSolve  

OutSolve has made another acquisition to further expand its offerings and role as a complete compliance solutions provider. The Affirmative Action planning and compliance solutions company has added The Van Zant Resource Group’s (VRG) Affirmative Action practice, an HR consulting company based in Atlanta, GA.

The acquisition supports the full suite of compliance solutions OutSolve provides to clients, from Affirmative Action planning to OFCCP audit support and EEO-1 reporting. It also contributes to the growth of OutSolve’s team of consultants and executives.

“Purchasing the Affirmative Action practice of VRG, a well-respected and experienced HR consulting company, will bring great value to OutSolve including a skilled team of consultants and the expansion of our offerings,” said Jeremy Mancheski, president and founder of OutSolve. “This purchase, along with other acquisitions and partnerships, supports our company’s growth strategy, and will contribute to further differentiate OutSolve as a complete compliance solution.”

 “The integration of VRG's AAP services with OutSolve's team of affirmative action experts creates a unique opportunity to provide clients with access to a broader range of solutions and offerings while maintaining the same world-class level of professionalism and focused customer support,” said Pete Van Zant, co-founder and president of VRG.  “Since the entire VRG AAP team will continue to serve our loyal client base, the transition will be virtually seamless. Our clients will continue to work with the same VRG team members they have known and trusted for years while benefiting from access to a more robust software platform, improved back office systems, and work product customization options we have not been able to offer in the past.

“The synergies created by the combination of these two groups are compelling. This partnership allows VRG to focus on growth in our core business of human resources consulting while strengthening OutSolve’s position as the leading provider of affirmative action services to the federal contractor community.   We believe this is an important milestone for both organizations and creates substantial benefits to all our clients.”

This is the third major acquisition made by OutSolve since 2016, following the purchases of Workplace Dynamics and Pinnacle Affirmative Action Services, a pair of EEO and Affirmative Action compliance consulting firms.

OutSolve also recently partnered with America’s Job Exchange (AJE) to develop Compliance United, a complete Affirmative Action regulatory compliance solution for Federal Contractors and Subcontractors. At the end of 2016, LNC Partners invested in OutSolve to support the company’s expansion in the market.
