State Workforce

About Human Resources

The Chief Human Resource Office and the Enterprise Human Resources Division within the Department of Administrative Services provide 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 DAS 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.
