“To provide excellent professional service to all customers by providing accurate information; being highly responsive; sustaining cooperative working relationships; and, pursuing progressive and innovative approaches in carrying out our work.”
The Human Resources Department is made up of three program areas:
- Liability and Workers’ Compensation
- Employee Services
The Personnel program manages the City’s employment system through adherence to sound personnel management practices and procedures. Support services are provided to all City departments. Labor negotiations, labor relations, and compliance with state and federal labor laws fall under this program’s purview.
The Liability and Workers' Compensation program serves the public and City employees. It is responsible for overseeing the City's comprehensive risk management, including acquisition of excess liability insurance, loss prevention, and processing of claims and lawsuits filed against the City.
The Employee Services program centralizes the budgeting and management of City employee compensation plans. Agreements with labor associations are monitored and implemented as a part of this program's function.
