We applaud Johnson & Johnson for their efforts in recognizing the potential of their human capital and making effective use of it." With 12 years of existence, HOLA has managed to support its Hispanic employees, not only nationally, but internationally. HOLA's leadership is highly structured which results in effective and impactful work that not only benefits the company but the community. A highlight of this group includes its involvement in various external and internal programs that promotes health amongst the Latino community. Other distinguished 2013 Employee Resource Groups recognized for exceptional leadership and vision are: HACEMOS of AT&T, Sodexo Organization of Latinos (SOL) of Sodexo, Association of Latinos at MassMutual and Allies (ALMMA) of MassMutual Financial Group, and Hispanic Initiative Team (HIT) of General Motors. These ERGs are great examples of how companies can utilize these groups to connect and empower the local community, provide mentoring and training resources to its members, and aid in the innovation and reinvigoration of a company's business. There were two additional companies who demonstrated innovative work, and are included in in this year's Top 5 Employee Resource Groups as honorable mentions: Team Member Networks- Latin Connection of Wells Fargo, and GE Hispanic Forum (GEHF) of General Electrics.
