USPS named one of country’s best for Hispanics

Hispanic Business magazine has named USPS one of the best companies for Hispanics.

The Postal Service is the only federal agency included in the magazine’s Diversity Elite 60 list, an annual directory of the best companies for Hispanics. The rating was deter­mined by more than 30 variables that measure companies’ commitment to Hispanic hiring, promotion, marketing, phi­lanthropy and supplier diversity.

In an article that accompanies the ranking in the September issue, Hispanic Business notes that the Postal Service is not only delivering the nation’s mail, “but also a commitment to diversity within the huge organization, with suppliers and throughout the communities it serves.”

Chief Human Resources Officer Anthony Vegliante said in the article that the Postal Service’s talent acquisition and retention strategy reflects continually changing demo­graphics and targets all USPS positions, including its many corporate positions in engineering, legal, financial and other professional fields. “We see ourselves as a micro­cosm of America,” he said.
