Human Resource Policy
About the Human Resource Policy Section
Two women at computer

The HR Policy section is responsible for establishing a system of human resource administration for state government. We develop and implement the state's workforce management plan; develop and administer Chief HR Office's rules and policies; and provide consulting services and technical assistance to agency Human Resources offices. 
The mission of the Chief Human Resource Office is to provide direction and services to promote a stable and qualified workforce in Oregon State Government. The Chief Human Resources Office works collaboratively to provide consistent policy direction that builds trust in agencies through individual or group consultation and generates best practice and approaches that drive policy direction.

To help carry out the mission, the Human Resource Policy section develops and implements workforce development and management strategies for Oregon state government; works closely with other DAS divisions and state agencies to implement new or to revise existing state human resource policies and Oregon Administrative Rules, while implementing “best practice” in human resource management; conducts special studies and research on highly complex policy, program, and human resource management issues and makes recommendations to the Governor’s Office and the Chief Operations Officer; and provides consulting services and technical assistance to state agency Human Resource offices.
