The City's Bureau of Human Resources is responsible for

  • providing outreach and recruitment services
  • working with local schools to identify needed skill sets for future City employees
  • assisting bureaus to identify and assess the skills of the City's workforce
  • training and developing City employees
  • providing cost effective employee benefit programs that promote wellness
  • negotiating labor contracts impacting employees represented in nine different bargaining units
  • developing and maintaining comprehensive human resources policy and systems structures
  • managing the City's classification and compensation system to ensure consistent pay practices

In short, we are charged with supporting the City's most important "infrastructure" - its employees.
