Personnel Management and Human Resources

The Center continues to provide personnel management and human resource assistance to local governments.  One of the primary responsibilities of local governments, as service providers, is to hire a capable staff and provide them with a safe work environment.  The components of a comprehensive personnel management system include:

  • policies and procedures
  • position descriptions
  • performance appraisal
  • compensation schedule
