    Beautiful Cherry tree in bloom
    The Chief Human Resource Office (CHRO) provides enterprise-wide policy leadership necessary to maintain a reliable and qualified workforce for the state of Oregon. The Office's centralized policy functions enable executive branch agencies to share resources and expertise with which to manage their human resource assets and capital in a cost-effective way. We oversee state agencies' human resources (HR) functions: Classification and Compensation, HR Policy, Executive Recruitments, Labor Relations, and Workforce Development.
