Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) June 13, 2014
In response to a growing demand for its high-impact two-day workshop for Hispanic talent, Center for Hispanic Leadership (CHL), which has successfully helped thousands of Latino professionals to accelerate their advancement in the workplace, will hold its flagship Discover Your Hispanic Leadership workshop, sponsored by Target, at University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis on June 17 and 18. This workshop marks the second-to-last city stop for CHL, which will hold its last training of 2014 in Atlanta in August.
“At Target, we believe that our differences are one of our greatest strengths,” said Kim Strong, vice president of Diversity and Inclusion at Target. “We share the Center for Hispanic Leadership’s commitment to helping all leaders embrace their unique perspectives, which drives innovation and success.”
Based on CHL’s work with Hispanic professionals in Fortune 500s across all industries, Hispanics are eager to embrace their cultural values as a means to awaken their full potential. Additionally, they are extremely interested in learning how to educate their non-Hispanic colleagues about the Hispanic culture and how it shapes the identity of Latinos. “As the fastest-growing workforce in America, it’s now time for Hispanic professionals to be discovered as leaders while elevating their performance capabilities and enabling their unique talents more rapidly,” says Glenn Llopis, CHL CEO/Founder, Forbes business leadership contributing writer, and go-to-authority on Hispanics, who will lead the workshop in June.
According to a January 2014 Harvard Business Review article which noted a Research Now survey of Hispanic workers in the United States, “Nearly 85 percent said that ‘feeling I am on the steady road to success, getting the training and development I need along the way’ is important in creating excitement and engagement at work.” It is for the reasons outlined in the Harvard Business Review article that CHL workshops have delivered overwhelmingly positive outcomes for countless Fortune 500 companies and deeply resonated with employees across the country.
Since Hispanics will comprise 18 percent of the labor force by 2018, organizations, corporations, and universities will need to better prepare Hispanics with culturally-relevant education and training in order to increase the talent pipeline of Hispanic employees. According to CHL’s research, major corporations that have both sponsored past CHL workshops and also sent their Hispanic employees to the trainings, have witnessed first-hand the ROI from workshop graduates. According to CHL post evaluations, corporations report that Hispanic employee workplace engagement increased by more than 70 percent and that Hispanic employee retention rates increased by 69 percent post workshop.
During the CHL workshop, which will provide more than 20-hours of in-person and pre-work instruction, participants will learn how to harness their cultural roots as a source of strength for career advancement. Adds Llopis, “Hispanic professionals need to understand that by being authentic to their true identities they will unleash their hidden potential – yielding great success for themselves and the corporations they work for.”
