Hispanic Federal Workforce Grows, Report Finds

The percentage of Hispanics employed by the federal government continues to rise, according to a new report released by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

The report found that Hispanic representation in the workforce grew from 6.5 percent in FY2000, when an Executive Order directing boosting such representation in the workforce was signed, to 8.4 percent in FY2014.

Also found in the report was an increase in the percentage of Hispanics working in the Senior Executive Service (SES). In FY2013 4.1 percent of the SES was Hispanic, a figure that rose to 4.4 percent in FY2014. The percentage of new SES hires who were Hispanic also rose from 3.5 percent in FY2013 to 5.5 percent in FY2014.

“The data shows that we continue to make steady progress in improving the representation of Hispanics in Federal service. The numbers also indicate that agencies that have made the recruitment and retention of Hispanics an important part of hiring and inclusion have shown more progress,” OPM Acting Director Beth Cobert wrote in a blog post announcing the report release.
