Since 1997, the HLPA has been providing America's Best companies &
organizations with diversity based recruiting resources, as well as job and
career information for individuals and job seekers. The HLPA continually
publishes and updates career information and opportunities from quality socially
conscious organizations who support the Hispanic / Latino Community.
A lot of organizations and public leaders seem to have a Diversity Statement these days. However, how many actually take action to support marginalized groups and communities that experience discrimination and exclusion because of unequal power relationships across economic, political, social and cultural dimensions.
Each year, to highlight and identify organizations actively supporting the Hispanic / Latino Community, the HLPA publishes a set of lists of America's Best Places For Latinos To Work. These lists include companies, government agencies, hospitals, schools, associations, and other organizations. The lists are organized by Location, Name, & Industry, and serve to educate and inform the Hispanic / Latino Community.
Lists are located at: https://hlpa.com/employers
Any organization that is at least 1 year old with more than 100 U.S. employees is eligible. Organizations must either maintain an Employer Membership with us OR show proof of working directly with a Hispanic / Latino organization with at least 500,000 active members that focuses on recruitment and job placement issues for the Hispanic / Latino Community.
In addition, organizations must not have any unanswered Federal or State level Diversity & Inclusion labor complaints with the Department of Labor, OFCCP, State or Local Agencies, or other governing body.
We also survey our members and users each year and ask, among other things, if they have been hired (and by whom), or if they have any comments or complaints about any employers they have dealt with. All complaints are forwarded to the organization (registered contact on record with us) for review and response. If the issue is resolved to the satisfaction of both us and the individual, the organization will remain listed. However, if a complaint goes unresolved or if we are made aware of an organization not acting in good faith, we reserve the right to remove an organization from the lists at anytime.
If your organization is targeting the Hispanic / Latino Community as part of a Diversity & Inclusion program and you would like to learn more about how the HLPA can help, please call us 888-550-3777 or use the Contact Us form.
