Commitment

The BLS is a leader in the field of economics and statistical analysis, offering entry-level employment opportunities as well as positions for experienced professionals with various talents, skills, and knowledge. Through our employment practices, we strive to promote an inclusive culture that is representative of the Nation we serve.

Philosophy on Diversity

At BLS, we strive to create an environment that welcomes, respects, and leverages our individual differences as a competitive strength.

Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws help to ensure that race, sex, national origin, and other legally protected characteristics are not considered in employment decisions. EEO is derived from federal, state and local laws that govern all employment-related actions. Affirmative action regulations help us to identify and remove barriers to the hiring and the advancement of minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.

We fully respect and incorporate the requirements of EEO laws and affirmative action into our employment practices. An organization’s commitment to diversity extends beyond this legal and regulatory framework. Our goal at BLS is to help each employee to reach his or her full potential. We recognize and promote the qualities that make each individual unique. Among these are our individual beliefs, job experiences, cultural backgrounds, and intellectual perspectives. These unique attributes of each employee and the diversity of our workforce are what enable us to maintain our position as a national leader in economics and statistical analysis.
