State Workforce

The Human Resource Services Division (HRSD) of the Department of Administrative Services provides direction and services to state agencies in maintaining a stable and qualified workforce for Oregon state government. Its activities include classification and compensation, HR management and consultation, HR systems, labor relations, statewide recruitment and training.

Under the law, some agencies have authority to manage their workforce independent of HRSD's administrative rules, policies, and personnel reporting systems. Examples include Oregon Lottery, Oregon Judicial Department, the Oregon University System and Oregon's semi-independent boards and commissions.

The following reports and descriptions reflect the diversity of the environment in state government human-resource and workforce management.

  • State Employee Salary as of June 30, 2009
    State Employee Salary (.xls, 4MB)
    State Employee Salary (.csv, 4MB)

    Each annual salary listed in this report is 12 times that particular employee's monthly adjusted salary rate as of June 30, 2009. "Annual Salary" includes most differential payments (such as work-out-of-classification and bilingual differential), but excludes payments for overtime, shift differential, benefits, and vacation payout. The report does not account for unpaid furlough leave that management employees began taking in fiscal year 2008-2009; neither does it reflect step decreases and unpaid furlough leave that some classified employees began taking after June 2009.

    This report does not include annual salaries for employees of the Oregon University System, Oregon State Treasurer,* semi-independent agencies, temporary employees, or records protected by court order.

          * Oregon State Treasurer is exempt from HB2500.
