The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) has been named one of the top 50 companies that provide the best career opportunities for Latinas in the U.S. by LATINA Style Magazine for the 7th year in a row. NEXCOM is the only U.S. Navy activity to receive this recognition. Over 11 percent of NEXCOM’s 14,000 associates across the globe are Latino and nearly eight percent are Latina women.
“To earn this award seven years in a row means a great deal to me and all our associates around the world,” said Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi (Ret), Chief Executive Officer, NEXCOM. “Our command culture is one of diversity and inclusion. Our workforce mirrors our diverse customer base. It is rewarding to be recognized for supporting our Latina associates and all the outstanding work they do each and every day to support our military members and their families.”
Companies responding to LATINA Style's questionnaire are evaluated based on matters that LATINA Style magazine readers deemed as most important to them in the workplace. The LATINA Style 50 report reflects those programs that Latinas are looking for when seeking job opportunities. Among the principal areas of evaluation are: the number of Latina executives, Latina retention, mentoring programs, educational opportunities, employee benefits, job retraining, affinity groups, and Hispanic relations. Evaluations for the 2018 annual report are based on 2017 data.
The annual awards ceremony honoring the LATINA Style 50 companies will take place on February 21, 2019, during the LATINA Style's Diversity Leaders and Awards Conference in Washington, D.C.
