Human Resources

The department’s mission is to use fair and equitable practices to hire, develop, support and retain a highly qualified workforce within the City.  Part of Human Resources’ challenge is to set the City of Crescent City apart from other employers as an employer of choice, so that we may be able to recruit the best and brightest candidates into our City family.  This department believes that we have to cut to the heart of what makes people want to go to work every day, and that is ‘purpose’.

When employees work for the City, it gives them more than just a paycheck.  City employees are highly valued and this department believes that City employees understand that they are an integral part in helping to improve the ultimate well-being for our community.  Even if an employee doesn’t start out with that mind set, after some time of working with the City - it gives them an opportunity to use energy, ideas and their individual talents to benefit our residents and visitors combined.

Human Resources helps to be a bridge that connects those employees with purpose.
