We support 11 city departments and divisions and more than 600 full-time and part-time city employees. We are responsible for employee recruitment and selection, job classification and compensation, employee benefits administration, workforce training and development, employee policies, safety and workers’ compensation, talent management, employee relations, and the employee wellness program.

Our goal is to hire great people to do what they love; give them the tools to be successful; remove the barriers to that success; and then get out of their way.
