HEP: Aspects

HEP: Origin

This program was created as a result to the Executive Order 12900 (February 22, 1994), which requires agencies to be actively involved in helping advance educational opportunities for Hispanic Americans, including working with individuals and educational, business, and community groups serving Hispanic Americans, to the extent permitted by law. [NMI 3713.2F]

HEP: Goals

  • Publicize the Program
  • Determine Occupational Underrepresentation
  • Identify Recruitment Sources
  • Provide Information on Job Opportunities
  • Identify Problem Areas
  • Monitor Progress

Hispanic Employment Program’s overall objective is to ensure that Hispanics have an equal opportunity to compete fairly in all aspects of Federal employment, i.e., recruitment, training, upward mobility, career counseling, developmental details, promotions, and any other condition of employment.
