Contents Notes
Hispanics are the fastest growing minority in the United States and are filling an increasingly significant portion of the work force. However, despite theses facts, little or no research has been conducted to date to address this issue. Until now. The first in its field, Hispanics in the Workplace presents a comprehensive exploration of Hispanic employment factors, problems at work, and work in the government and private sectors. Contributors include notable researchers who uncover such specific topics as entry into employment, work force characteristics, recruiting and selection, training and development, special problems of women, job satisfaction, stress management, the work ethic, stereotyping, and language barriers. They address various opportunities and problems of Hispanics as they relate to the military, civilians in the military, the private sector, and entrepreneurs. If you are a professional, academic, or student of management, organizational studies, sociology, human resources, and/or ethnic studies, who wants to stay on the cutting edge of the field, then this pathbreaker is for you. 1.
