USPS Only Federal Agency on Hispanic Business’ DIVERSITY ELITE 60 List
Hispanic Business magazine has again named the U.S. Postal Service to its annual “Diversity Elite 60” list of best companies for Hispanics, the only federal agency included in the magazine’s 2008 list. The rankings are determined by more than 30 variables that measure companies’ commitment to Hispanic hiring, promotion, marketing, philanthropy and supplier diversity.
In addition, the Postal Service was listed in the magazine’s list of the country’s “top 10 companies for workforce diversity.” This ranking measures and compares the percentages of minorities (Hispanics, African Americans, Asians, Native Americans, and women) in the workforce, and gives increased weight to higher-level positions such as managers and officers.
“A diverse workforce enables us to serve the needs of our increasingly diverse customer base,” says Susan LaChance, vice president of Employee Development and Diversity at the Postal Service. “We try our best to build a corporate culture that is inclusive and reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
