Combined Communications, Inc.
Equal Opportunity Employment Program
10/1/2014-9/30/2015

Radio Stations KBND AM, KLRR FM, KTWS FM, KMTK FM and KWXS FM serve the Central Oregon community and provide equal employment opportunity to all job applicants.  The stations operate as a unit to insure that maximum available community resources are utilized to generate qualified job applicants from all segments of our ethnically diverse community.

The following outlines the stations’ program of policies and procedures to assure all qualified candidates, both within and outside the community we serve, who might be interested in employment with our company, can learn about and apply for any positions that might become available:

1. A list of recruitment sources to be utilized to generate applicants for every full-time job opportunity will be maintained, periodically revised and updated.
2. On-air advertisements are periodically used for positions that do not require radio specific technical, operational or talent skills.  The job advertisements are generally for sales, accounting and administrative positions.
3. Notices of all full-time employment opportunities will be widely distributed and dated copies of such notices will be retained.
4. All full-time existing staff are notified of any new openings.  The staff has been encouraged to refer anyone they know that might be qualified, or to apply themselves if they are interested and feel they qualify.
5. Local, regional and national job search web sites are periodically tried and evaluated for effectiveness.
6. Combined Communications, Inc. will coordinate efforts to monitor and assure the execution of this plan.  Combined will train and update staff on EYE issues.
7. The company conducts an internship program for college/high school students in the area.  Many part-time employment opportunities are filled by interns. 
8. All employment notices, material and advertising, whether written or broadcast, will include the phrase “Combined Communications is an equal opportunity employer.”
9. Each producer of Local on-air programming on all stations including news, public service/public affairs, commercial content and announcer entertainment/commentary, are routinely counseled regarding sensitivity to minority, gender, and other diversity issues in order to foster the perception and the reality within our community that Combined Communications actively promotes equal employment opportunity for all, regardless of race, sex, religion or national origin.

Combined Communications will routinely and systematically review, the effectiveness of this program and make periodic modifications that may be required to fulfill the goal of offering equal opportunity to all applicants and to insure these applicants represent all communities within our service area.
