EEOC Report Addresses Federal Hispanic Employment Issues

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has released a comprehensive report to Chair Naomi C. Earp from the Federal Hispanic Work Group, titled Report on the Hispanic Employment Challenge in the Federal Government. The report contains an extensive number of practical recommendations that address a broad array of contemporary federal sector employment issues, including hiring, leadership development, and retention.

"I've identified a significant number of short- and long-term recommendations in the report for achievement, and I've asked that the Office of Federal Operations take the lead in our implementation efforts," Earp said. "These actions are long overdue and will help agencies remove barriers and create greater opportunities for Hispanic applicants and employees throughout the federal government."

Among the key recommendations selected for implementation are the following:

  • Include EEO/diversity requirements in all hiring officials’ critical performance elements;
  • Establish a consortium of federal agencies whose mission-critical occupations include science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to coordinate recruitment efforts;
  • Develop a Hispanic Media Outreach Strategy and branding tool to assist agencies in marketing various types of federal employment;
  • Better utilize intern programs;
  • Create a government-wide mentoring program; and
  • Create full-time Hispanic Employment Program Manager positions to address Hispanic employment initiatives and programs.
