Discover the DE Difference

Developed for Employers, By Employers

We’re not a vendor offering your organization “check-the-box” solutions; we are an extension of your team, helping to make your job easier. DirectEmployers is a nonprofit Member-owned and -managed association formed in 2001 by 14 leading Fortune 500 companies searching for a way to reduce recruiting costs, while regaining ownership of their recruitment brand.

Through collaboration with these individuals, DirectEmployers developed proprietary technology that has since led to the creation of our flagship product—a federal contractor compliance solution that assists with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program’s (OFCCP) VEVRAA mandatory listing requirements and Section 503 regulations. Now with around 900 employers varying in industry and size, we’ve expanded our Member benefits to include online recruiting solutions, the Partner Relationship Manager (PRM), networking and educational opportunities and so much more.
