The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), one of the nation’s leading Hispanic advocacy organizations, released today the results of its 2015 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (HACR CII).

The HACR CII is a component of HACR’s Corporate Accountability Strategy and measures Hispanic inclusion at Fortune 100 companies and HACR Corporate Member companies. The results of the 2015 HACR CII indicate that nearly 25 percent of this year’s returning participants have improved their rating from 2014, which reflects a commitment to diversity.

Since 2009, the HACR CII has tracked trends in Corporate America in four areas: Employment, Procurement, Philanthropy, and Governance. HACR focuses on these four areas of corporate social responsibility and market reciprocity to measure the inclusion of Hispanics in Corporate America.

Key highlights from the 2015 HACR CII include:

• Hispanics comprise an average of more than 15% of the total reported employee base in Corporate America.
• Hispanics are still more likely to be found in non-exempt positions within Corporate America.
• On average, participants reported directing nearly 2% of total procurement spend to Hispanic-owned businesses.
• Average total charitable contributions made by participants in 2015 totaled more than $85 million while average total contributions to Hispanic-led and community organizations amounted to slightly more than $6 million.
• Hispanics held just over 7% of board seats amongst the participating companies, which is higher than the average within the Fortune 500, but is still considered low.

The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) released findings from its 2012 Corporate Inclusion Index (CII) survey and, for the fourth year in a row, more companies participated with 55 companies in total.

Overall, the 2010 U.S. Census reported Hispanics as the largest minority group in the U.S. with over 50 million consumers. With $1.3 trillion in buying power, U.S. Hispanic consumers comprise the 14th largest economy in the world.

As a result, HACR has seen an increase in the willingness of Corporate America to work with the Hispanic population, evidenced through increased participation since 2009 with 20 additional companies participating in the survey. This year's report also saw eight companies participating for the first time, 26 companies improving their rating from the previous year, and all seven Fortune 100 commercial banking companies participating in the survey.
