STORY BEHIND THE PERFORMANCE

The Human Resources (HR) Department is committed to providing innovative services and programs that align with the County’s mission, strategic initiatives, and departmental goals. The HR Department is comprised of five (5) functional areas that include: Administration, Employee Benefits, Employee and Labor Relations, Employment and Human Resources Information Systems, and Learning and Organizational Development. Based on the data collected, HR is developing strategies to enhance the employee life cycle from the time a recruitment is open to an employee’s exit from the organization.

Over the last three (3) years, the County has experienced an increase in the number of promotions, recruitments conducted, applications received, and new hires brought into the organization due to an increase in retirements and separations. The department’s goal is to analyze the various best practices captured for standardizing the County’s recruitment process to ensure timeliness and efficiency in filling vacant positions. Furthermore, to address the increase in the number of employees exiting the organization, the HR Department will be reviewing data on exit interviews and developing strategies for continued improvement of the employee life cycle.

An average of 85% of new hires successfully complete the County’s New Employee Orientation, where they are initially introduced to the County expectations and culture. To work towards meeting 100% compliance, HR has developed an Employee Relations Manual that is an easy-to-use reference to guide supervisors and managers on how to successfully set clear expectations during the employee’s life cycle. In addition, HR will be proposing to implement a new Learning Management System which will also serve as a tool for assisting supervisors and managers with tracking and reporting employees’ progress in completing their learning plans and the timely completion of performance evaluations. HR also aims to standardize the performance evaluation process and update the County’s performance evaluation policy.

In the department’s efforts in enhancing the employee life cycle, it’s HR’s expectation that the functional areas continue to play a key role in supporting the department’s goal of being the County’s employer of choice.
