More About This Textbook

Overview

Leveraging the growing influence of Hispanics in the U.S. workforce has taken on new urgency: by 2050 Hispanics will represent 32 percent of the nation's population and 55 percent of its workers. In this provocative new work, noted authority Louis Nevaer and veteran HR executive Vaso Perimenis Ekstein deliver both the strategies and the hands-on tools needed to tackle what many human resource experts consider one of the greatest challenges facing corporate America today. Exploring the cultural nuances that inform the Hispanic experience, HR and the New Hispanic Workforce details what it takes to incorporate the values and sensibilities Hispanic employees bring to the workplace that are so often at odds with those of traditional corporate America. Combining their original research with best-practices examples—from Citigroup Foundation's internship program to Procter & Gamble's success creating a Hispanic-friendly workplace—the authors lay out a road map for attracting the best Hispanic candidates, effectively evaluating their performance and cultivating and retaining their talents.

    Very Relevant Book

    This is a well-crafted and authoritative book that notes the cultural differences and needs of our growing Hispanic workforce. While our government waxes and wanes on the overall issue of immigration, many businesses continue to succeed based on having an available and able labor pool to draw from.

    I bought this book in 2007 and have referred to it often as someone that needs sound, practical advice when dealing with cultures other than my own. As an example, a couple of pages within the book answer the simple yet perplexing questions of:

    . What motivates them?
    . Why are they reluctant to look you in the eye?
    . Why don't they call manager by their first names?
    . Why don't they care about benefits?

    The authors' explanations help to explain the cultural differences and guide managers through the sea of nuances associated with a diversified workforce.

    This is an important work and would be recommended for anyone in management.

    I hope you find this review helpful.

    Insightful guide to understanding and utilizing your Hispanic workers.

    Louis Nevaer and Vaso Perimenis Ekstein advocate accommodating Hispanic culture and workers in your workplace. They argue that you should make changes in that direction and explain how to make them. While the authors sometimes blur the difficult line between separating out a group as ¿minorities¿ or, instead, being culturally sensitive, their advice makes sense to the extent that your company has Hispanic employees and job applicants. The authors¿ counsel on how to check for hidden bias in your workplace is quite good, although their mandate for bilingualism may apply only in places where that is already an expected element of the local culture. Employers will benefit from the book¿s discussion of the cultural significance of work and extended family for Hispanics. getAbstract recommends this book to human resource managers working with Hispanic employees, with the note that the applicability and practicality of some of its suggestions may depend on the individual needs of your particular company.
