For managers, supervisors, and other administrators, Nevaer, a business journalist and author who is associated with a company that analyzes Hispanic consumer behavior, explains how employers in the US can develop Hispanic-friendly approaches to every aspect of the workplace, including recruitment, retention, supervision, evaluation, training, mentoring, and labor relations. He offers a culturally-aware and interdisciplinary approach to management challenges organizations face with the demographic shift in the workplace, and ways to develop healthy relationships and implement strategies for success. He addresses the impact of Hispanics on the labor market, the characteristics of Hispanic workers and variations between cultures, their worldview, and their career needs in management positions.

Hispanics make up the largest and fastest-growing minority group in the United States. Organizations that don’t know how to make them feel comfortable, recognized, and rewarded risk losing access to this important source of talent and innovation. Drawing on his own ethnic background and years of experience as director of the organization Hispanic Economics, Louis Nevaer identifies elements unique to the Hispanic worldview that often result in behaviors, beliefs, and expectations very different from, and sometimes seemingly at odds with, those of non-Hispanics. He also describes differences within the Hispanic community—such as between U.S.-born and immigrant Hispanics, and between people from different parts of the Hispanic world—that have a huge, and often unrecognized, impact on how workers interact with each other as well as with non-Hispanics. Through a wealth of examples, Nevaer shows how to develop Hispanic-friendly approaches to every aspect of the modern workplace, from recruitment, retention, and evaluation to training, mentoring, and labor relations.
