Organizations: Do Your Homework

Here are two very interesting articles (here and here) that are a good follow-up to my earlier post regarding how 2012 was a tipping point for Latinos. These examples again show the growing influence that Latinos are having as a result of this year’s elections.  There are still many lessons that need to be learned by organizations - even if some of these organizations mean well. If organizations don’t understand the Latino workforce, they aren’t communicating with potential talent.  Not appreciating the cultural and political elements of any initiative aimed at attracting Latino employees is doomed to fail.

I’m always surprised by how many organizations still do not understand this very simple fact.
