The Human Resources Department handles all aspects of recruiting and hiring new employees. The department posts all vacant positions, receives applications and resumes and forwards them to the hiring department in which the vacancy exists. The hiring department then completes its selection process. Classification and compensation of positions is an on-going process handled by the Human Resources Department. A key component of the department is employee relations – assisting applicants, employees, supervisors and managers.
Employee Benefits are coordinated through the City's Benefits Office within the Human Resources Department. The Workers' Compensation section of HR is tasked with processing workers' compensation claims and managing workers' compensation liability funds.
Coordination of the Employee Assistance Program is available free-of-charge to all City employees and their families.
Training and Organizational development are important parts of enhancing employee job skills and performance. Offerings ensure a wide array of training programs to include a core set of Human Resource and supervisory compliance courses as well as leadership development opportunities.
