USPS Rated Top Business for Hispanics

The Postal Service’s commitment to diversity has placed it among the best of the best employers to work for, according to HispanicBusiness magazine’s Diversity Elite 60, a list of the nation’s top organizations that promote and model diversity in the workplace.

Ranking among the top 15 for leadership and personnel, the Postal Service, with 52,000 Hispanic employees, met 33 variables that measure a company’s commitment to Hispanic hiring, promotion, marketing, philanthropy and supplier diversity. HispanicBusiness magazine compiled the list after contacting the top Fortune 1000 companies, American subsidiaries of Global 500 companies and large U.S. public and private companies.

“The Postal Service recognizes the value and diversity of all of our employees and is proud to be recognized for it,” said Anthony Vegliante, chief human resources officer and executive vice president. “As one of the nation’s largest employers, we embrace diversity as a vital component to enriching our workplace while better serving our customers — now and into the future.”

“We view diversity as a winning business strategy and use it as a tool to deliver results in developing our workforce and promoting postal products and services,” said Susan LaChance, vice president, Employee Development and Diversity. “Quite simply, it makes good business sense.”
