This book is a study on how to unlock the innovative potential of the US Latino workforce. It goes beyond diversity by looking into how this emerging segment of the workforce views, accepts, and embraces innovation. This topic is important because innovation emanates from human beings, and cultural influences will determine how innovation is defined. Latinos will make up 31 percent of the US workforce by the year 2050. A significant part of the country’s knowledge workers will come from this demographic. Understanding how to unlock the innovative capabilities of Latinos is important for companies that want to differentiate themselves through an innovative workforce. The book combines empirically based research from our Project Impact study, and proven practical application using the ENOVALE methodology. This book will benefit management professionals and business students for several reasons. First, it goes beyond diversity, and provides management with definitive answers on how Latinos accept and react to innovation imperatives. The book also provides tools and methods to help manage the workforce to achieve innovative results.

Awarded a Silver Medal in the category Human Resources and Employee Training from the 2014 Axiom Business Book Awards • Create the inclusive, high performance workforce needed to succeed in an increasing multicultural society and global marketplace • Learn how global organizations and leading professional associations develop integrated HR/diversity talent strategies, and the specific challenges they face • Get practical tools to assess integrated HR/diversity strategic planning, and see why organizations are not making more diversity progress • Develop specific performance indicators to track your progress in implementing synergistic HR/diversity approaches • Case studies of SHRM, federal and state government, global corporations, and higher education illustrate systematic, integrated HR/diversity efforts For HR professionals and leaders, chief diversity officers, line managers, and executives in the private and public sectors and higher education, this book presents a systematic approach to integrating HR practices and strategic diversity initiatives to create the inclusive, high performance workforce that every enterprise and institution needs to succeed in an increasingly multicultural society and global marketplace. The authors’ point of departure is that talent is the primary strategic asset necessary for organizational survival and success in a demographically diversifying and globally interconnected world. Organizations seeking to attain their full potential in this new talent frontier must optimize their human capital resources by the deliberate development of synergy between human resource (HR) and diversity programs. Failure to integrate and coordinate these two functions will erode organizational competitiveness, whether it is in developing new markets, products, programs, or services. As the first book to provide a concrete roadmap to integrated HR and diversity strategy, the authors identify two critical practices: talent management through the orchestration of HR and diversity programs to enhance organizational capability by unleashing, mobilizing, nurturing, and sustaining the contributions of a diverse and talented workforce; and talent sustainability through the close integration of HR and diversity to continuously develop systems, structures, processes, and a culture that heighten employee commitment, engagement, and inclusion. They further believe that there should be a commonality of practice across all types of organizations, and that each sector can learn from the others to accelerate its adaptation to today’s rapidly shifting national and global realities. Based on the most current research and on interviews with HR and diversity leaders in major organizations, this book provides the reader with concrete strategies and practical tools for implementing a successful and sustainable talent management program. It also addresses common barriers to the development of synergistic HR and diversity strategy, and how to overcome them. Given the evolutionary nature of the integration of HR and diversity, the authors present nine extensive case studies from all organizational sectors, as well as from the two leading Human Resource professional associations – the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) – to illustrate the dynamic intersection between HR and diversity practices.
