"We're extremely pleased and honored to be named to this prestigious list for the fourth consecutive year," said Deborah Caplan, executive vice president of Human Resources and Corporate Services for NextEra Energy. "As part of our diversity and inclusion strategic plan, we recruit and develop a diverse and talented workforce that is reflective of the customers we serve, and we are committed to providing award-winning customer service that is second to none in our industry. Key to that commitment is ensuring an inclusive work environment that leverages our employees' incredibly unique talents and contributions, allowing us to be as responsive as possible to the needs of our customers." 

HispanicBusiness Magazine's annual list honors companies for their commitment to Hispanic hiring, promotion, marketing, philanthropy and supplier diversity. About 33 percent of the employees hired by NextEra Energy in 2012 were minorities and 17 percent of these were Hispanics. At FPL, 24 percent of its workforce is Hispanic.

NextEra Energy focuses on Hispanic markets as part of its advertising program and sponsors a wide range of social, economic development, educational and community-based initiatives throughout Hispanic communities. Nearly 20 percent of the company's advertising efforts are focused on Spanish-speaking customers, and approximately 10 percent of the company's total purchases during the fiscal year ending 2012 was with small business and minority contractors. In addition, the company contributed nearly $230,000 to minority groups and community services, and millions more in indirect contributions.  

This year, NextEra Energy employees formed HOLA, or the Hispanic Organization of Latino Americans. As one of the 10 employee network groups, HOLA promotes employees' diverse talents and fosters an inclusive business environment. Its members benefit from information sharing, career development, mentoring and team building. HOLA supports our corporate diversity and inclusion strategy and recognizes the value that Hispanic/Latino employees bring to the company's inclusive work environment.
