CHICAGO -- Governor George H. Ryan today reaffirmed his commitment to a qualified and diversified workforce for Illinois State government.

"It is crucial to Illinois that state government attract and retain a qualified and diversified workforce that reflects the unique personalities of our state," said Ryan.

Ryan announced the signing of Executive Order No. 15 at a breakfast marking Hispanic Heritage Month.

The Order directs the Department of Human Rights, the Department of Central Management Services, the Department of Employment Security and other state agencies to develop a recruitment plan that will reach all populations during efforts to fill vacancies.

Each agency will designate a management level person to be responsible for coordinating the recruitment efforts. The Department of Human Rights will be responsible for monitoring and assessing the agencies in their recruitment and hiring efforts and in reporting the information to the Governor on their progress.
